Canada’s largest South Asian youth event is back this summer and it will be a week full of fun events, plus an epic lineup to vibe to all week long.
The 5X Fest Block Party will be taking place on June 11 at Holland Park in Surrey. The Vancouver-based organization's Block Party kicks off a full week of yet-to-be-announced arts and culture programming.
At the Block Party, you can expect over eight hours of live music, various food vendors, art installations, a merchandise area and "the finest brown escapist experience you’ve encountered," according to a media release.
The outdoor festival is welcome to all ages, which means no drugs or alcohol allowed. Those 11 years old and under can enter for free but must be with an adult.
“We are building a home full of community, magic, compassion and passion. A home that portals us back into the deep waters of ourselves, because home is more than a foundation and four walls. A home is where creation happens, curiosity happens, joy happens. We are building a world to be bold in. To heal ourselves through art and colour,” share the festival producers.
This year’s lineup includes Canadian artists Ikky, Surrey-based Khanvict, and Vancouver’s BAINS.
