Vancouver is about to look a whole lot different… On Saturday August 20th, the first ever Vancouver Mural Festival is taking over East Van! Expect a full day of art, music and community love, involving dozens of local and international artists.
Work in progress at Hootsuite HQ.
In addition to the 40 new murals that will pop up around the area, there will also be a series of “underplay” concerts from the likes of Timber Timbre, Shad, and party rock legend, Andrew W.K.
Great art, street parties, and friendly vibes all day long, with live music and after parties happening into the night. If you want to get in on the action, check out this handy guide to Mural Festival courtesy of our friends at Do604.
You can also download the official Vancouver Mural Festival app
, which geolocates you into the heart of the action, making it easy for you to bounce from mural to mural and event to event. By downloading the app, you’ll also be automatically entered to win a pair of full VIP passes, giving you access to everything the fest has to offer, including the concerts and after parties.
See you in the neighbourhood next Saturday!
