Saturday can’t come soon enough!

It’s the Khatsalano Music and Art Festival. Getting bigger and better every year, this (FREE!) day long event takes over the streets of Kits for one of the best Summer events Vancouver has to offer. Kitsilano’s weather is looking perfect for Saturday so you can pack light.

The Khatsalano festival offers a day filled with live music from 50 (pretty great) bands across 10 stages. There will be markets to peruse, food trucks to try and the beach nearby when you need to relax.

50 Bands! You may have heard of some (quite a few of them play regular shows around Vancouver), and you may have heard of none, but thanks to YouTube you can check out most of them beforehand. You’ll be able to find me at the following shows:

BESTiE

Check out their Youtube video for Pineapple. Balsam Stage at 5:40pm.

Brasstronaut

Highly touted band, and not just in Vancouver. Check them out here before they start charging for tickets! Main stage at 6:15pm.

Pack AD

Probably the best known band (Juno nominated!), so they’ll definitely put on a good show.  Main Stage 7pm.

Twin River

Fantastic lyrics from this Folk band. Cypress Street Stage 4:30pm.

Blind Horses

Experimental Rock with cool sounds. Maple St stage at 12:45pm.

 Check out the entire Khatsalano Music Schedule. Here is a select few:

The Kits event runs from 11am to 9pm (though I’m sure BBQs and beach time will keep the fun going long into the night) taking place on everyone’s favourite Kitsilano street: West 4th Ave between Burrard St and Macdonald St.

Fable Kitchen at West 4th Ave and Cypress will be roasting an entire pig and will have ice cream sandwiches on hand. I’m sure quite a few other restaurants will have special events. Try to grab a seat at the Las Margaritas Patio, or call one of your friends that has a patio overlooking West 4th Ave. Darby’s Pub rooftop patio would be a good bet too if you’re interested in the bands playing on the Macdonald Street stage.

Considering that it’s shutting down some streets, driving is not recommended since the parking spaces on West 4th and nearby side streets will be taken over with festival fun. Luckily, there will be on site bike valets where you can park your bike under careful watch of the valet.  Pets are allowed, though not on patios or in areas where there will be food. With the number of people walking the streets, don’t bring your dog if they can’t handle a crowd.
