1:00 pm – Francis Henson
He released his first first-length album, Roots, in 2017 and has released an EP each year since. The first half of 2020 saw the release of his Americana-inspired album, With A Little Bit of Grace, including the popular track “Stuck Down In Paris With You.” Henson is known for smooth guitar phrasing, unambiguous songwriting, and hooks that remain in your head long after you’ve heard them.

2:00 pm – Super Krystal
After many projects and much distillation, Super Krystal was born. Drawing from their vastly different influences, the four-piece fuses sounds of surf, ska, hip-hop, jazz and pop together while maintaining a general theme of traditional Balkan music. Super Krystal is a collaboration between friends fuelled by creativity and the excitement of music making. Find out more at @super.krystal.
3:00 pm – Welcoming Remarks
3:30 pm – Elliott Slinn
Join New Westminster's Poet Laureate, Elliott Slinn for spoken word and song. Artist Statement: Here is a window into what drives me and inspires me – my passion. Like many of you may have felt - when I was younger, I felt alone. I write in the hopes that others (as I did when I found poetry,) will see and feel that they’re not. Despite race, creed, colour, gender – all the things we label in separation – we’re still human. We love, we hate, we fight, we forgive, we fear, we feel – and that is what I hope you’ll connect with Find our more at @elliott_slinn.
4:00 pm – Marry Me
Rockers & Mods find common ground in Marry Me's unique style: modern alternative rock and roll. Marry Me is Danny Lovelock on guitar and vocals, Natalee Lovelock on bass and vocals, Kylan Prince on guitar & vocals, and Kenny Dietrich on drums. Making music since 2012, Danny (the punk) met Natalee (the drama queen) via ambush setup, after he met Kenny (the metalhead) at audio production school Find out more at @marrymerockandroll.
5:00 pm – Sugarfungus
For a band inspired by science, nature, and dance music, the idea of stitching pieces of different organisms together to evolve into something infinitely funkier, more brilliantly alive is an apt metaphor. With restrictions easing, SUGARFUNGUS are hopeful that their underground tendrils will soon be able to rise to the surface and break out into the light, a unique and talented bunch – now a fully formed organism ready for its arrival.
