IndieFest is a musical gathering that brings together artists and audiences from all walks of life to expand artistic practices, experience new works of art, and express creative voices.

This new festival, now in it’s third year, celebrates an emerging field in the performing arts sector. From new opera, to virtual reality, to Indigenous practice, to drag, the festival amplifies the imaginative forms of storytelling and diverse artists unique to the Pacific Northwest.
IndieFest 2022 had 11 days of programming to explore from November 16th-27th 2022.

Thank you all for your incredible support, and for making our first in-person festival as warm, exciting, and groundbreaking as it could be.

We were so honoured to showcase new, genre-defying works developed by emerging and established creatives—at some of the most iconic venues around the city—over 11 days.
