Vancouver Mural Festival: The Park Show
Vancouver Mural Festival is currently in full force for 10 days of art and music. As the festival comes to an end, VMF and Live Nation have teamed up to bring us The Park Show this Saturday!
This year’s all-star lineup includes:
Laura Pergolizzi aka LP, a New York native who has been gracing the stage since the late nineties. Not only has Laura been making original music for over two decades, but she has also written songs for musicians such as Cher, Rihanna, The Backstreet Boys, Leona Lewis, and Christina Aguilera. This singer-songwriter legend will be headlining this year’s Park Show.
BADBADNOTGOOD, an instrumental group hailing from Toronto. The original three members, (Matthew Tavares, Alexander Sowinski, and Chester Hansen), met while attending the Humber College jazz program back in 2010. Ever since, they have been creating jazz music influenced with hip-hop, funk, and electronica. 2016 saw the addition of Leland Whitty on saxophone. Catch this critically acclaimed quartet this Saturday.
iskwē is a Juno Award winning Indigenous singer from Winnipeg who has been making electro-pop music for the better half of a decade. Through her songs, iskwē bridges her cultural background with some of the struggles she has faced. With two albums already released, iskwē will be performing many of her award-winning tracks for The Park Show this weekend.

He has been in the industry for 15+ years and has shared the stage with giants such as: Diplo, Andrew W.K., Metronomy, Samo Soundboy, Diamond Rings, Blood Diamonds, Teen Daze, Neon Indian, Alex of Blue Hawaii. Not only has Jason performed in many of our city’s venues, but he is also the founder of Glory Days, a weekly social event that takes place at The Biltmore every Saturday night.
