Want to know more about Venus Fest?
Founded with the intent to foster community, inclusivity and unification, based on feminist values, Venus Fest aims to provide a welcoming and safe environment for all attendees. The festival is committed to creating a shift in terms of the long-standing industry trends that have dominated event programming and organizational structures by ensuring greater awareness around who has access and representation in the arts. It is this responsibility that dictates the festival’s mission to ensure a fun atmosphere that is respectful and tolerant, without enabling destructive behaviours or attitudes. The festival arrived in response to a well-expressed need in the music industry to create a new kind of space for artists to thrive in and for community members to attend with a sense of safety.
The festival would like to recognize the support of OMDC, Exclaim!, and Long & McQuade in the presentation of the 2018 edition. Wristbands and tickets are now on-sale here.

I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
