Diamond Cafe || Victoria, BC ||
Diamond Cafe is the solo project of Canadian multi-instrumentalist Tristan Thompson. Out of his bedroom he blends the sounds of synth pop and R&B with a beautiful touch on sex and love.
"There’s an innate charm to Diamond Cafe, and as eclectic as the music may be, I always find myself coming back, indicating that there’s something truly exciting to behold here.” - Lyrical Lemonade
Babe Corner || Vancouver, BC ||
Babe Corner is a rock band from Vancouver BC. Catchy guitar riffs, dreamy synths, and soothing melodic lead vocals that are backed up with 4 part harmony give Babe Corner a nostalgic rock vibe. To assume it’s genre, you could call it “Babe Core” - however, nobody puts baby in a corner.
Plus lovely locals...
“Each song here is a meticulously carved and handsomely crafted piece of sonic confection, easy on the ears but dutifully dressed in a menagerie of multicolored, psychedelic hues that gleam and glisten like dewdrops on a steamy summer’s morning. Watch closely, fellow indie-poppers, for the Lizard will swiftly assume their rightful position in that piece of the musical cosmos most often frequented by Tame Impala, Animal Collective, and Vampire Weekend in no time flat.”
- Paul Boylson / Captain Sound
“If you’re going to name your band Cartoon Lizard, you’d better know what you’re doing. And what kind of weirdness people expect from you. This Victoria indie-pop outfit clearly gets it. And delivers on both counts.”
- Darryl Sterdan / Tinnitist
Sussy is the solo project of Suz or Suzannah Raudaschl of Bridal Party. When she isn’t making the beach pop tunes with Bridal Party she continues an releasing pop gems as Sussy. She just released a brand new single Forever Boy to follow up 2018’s Material EP.

This event will take place on unceded Coast Salish Territories, specifically of the Lekwungen and WSÁNEĆ peoples. As we focus on building artistic and cultural bridges, we acknowledge the rich cultural history of the many peoples and rituals that have been affected by the ongoing process of dispossession and colonialism. We hold this understanding in our interactions and engagements with this land and its people.
