Event Description

Westward Music Festival return's to Vancouver, taking place on June 22nd and 23rd, 2024. Set against the vibrant backdrop of Mount Pleasant, this year's festival promises an unforgettable experience.

The centrepiece of the festival is the outdoor stage located in the parking lot of the City Centre Artist Lodge right in the heart of Mount Pleasant. Attendees can expect a dynamic atmosphere, with all artist studios open during the event, adding to the overall festival experience. As the outdoor stage winds down, the focus will switch to evening programming spread across renowned venues such as Fox Cabaret, Biltmore Cabaret, and Red Gate Arts Society, which are all conveniently located within 5 blocks of CCAL. 

Weekend Festival Pass Includes access to all Westward Music Festival Events

  • Outdoor daytime programming at City Centre Artist Lodge

  • Events at Biltmore, Fox Cabaret & Red Gate * Subject to Capacity

  • In and Out privileges at all events

Cherry Glazerr:

Cherry Glazerr’s brazen snarl is never far from a dreamy refrain. Their stomping garage rock and hazy pop dirges have propelled the group to tear up the Coachella stage and write music for Yves Saint Laurent. This eclectic journey is fitting for a band so adventurous. 

2023’s I Don’t Want You Anymore is Cherry Glazerr’s most ambitious album yet. Brawny punk riffing drives tracks like “Ready For You.” Songs like “Bad Habit,” meanwhile, forgo guitars for spiraling vocal loops and danceable production that burrows into the mind. It was ranked one of the best rock albums of 2023 by PopMatters and received rave reviews in Pitchfork, Paste & Under the Radar, among others. 

Mick Jenkins:

Before releasing his breakout mixtape Trees & Truths in 2013, peerless rapper Mick Jenkins worked in fashion, poetry and the justice system. Raised on neo-soul and contemporary Black gospel, Jenkins has steadily built his one-of-one place in hip-hop — and music in general — over the course of increasingly excellent releases. 

Last year’s album The Patience (an Exclaim! Staff pick for 2023) might be his crown jewel. Anchored by slick, live instrumentalism and an eclectic approach to drum programming, the record seamlessly flows through laid-back vibes that let Jenkins create his best verses to date. Peppered with culinary wordplay and symbiotic guest verses from Freddie Gibbs, J.I.D and Vic Mensa, it’s a lush and lean work where most tracks are shorter than two-and-half minutes.
