The Rhythm of the People Music & Arts Festival is determined to embody reconciliation and building positive relationships, as the 4-day fest will be showcasing Indigenous and non-Indigenous musicians spanning across several genres. As previously announced, founders of electric pow-wow A Tribe Called Red are set to play the fest. Joining them will be grunge-wave sensation Soccer Mommy, award-winning Athabaskan/Inupiaq songwriter Quinn Christopherson, post-hardcore standalone CITIZEN, to name a few. There will also be a major visual arts aspect to this festival curated in partnership with TRUCK Contemporary Art, creating a decolonized arts space. This all will be taking place on August 13-16, 2020, festival passes are already on sale. Second-wave artist announcement will be on May 4, 2020, and all announcements leading up to the festival can be found on IRIM’s socials, Rhythm of the People socials, and website: https://www.irim.ca/festival.
