Held on the shared traditional territories on the Nłeʔkepmx and Syilx nations, Bass Coast took its promise of a “thoughtfully curated boutique music and arts festival” to a whole new level from July 8-11, successfully landing its biggest edition to date.

Featuring five main audiovisual stages as well as The Brain, an additional workshop stage, Bass Coast was an astonishing journey of music and creative expression. While it featured over 57 art installations—many of which were interactive—and performance artists, something which made the experience even more unique, was its carefully curated lineup of performers.
