In Focus: Edge of the World Music Festival
Killer lineup, check. Welcoming environment, check. Beautiful natural surroundings, check. From Aug. 10-12, Haida Gwaii’s Edge of the World Music Festival served up all of that and more.
Featuring artists like Kristi Lane Sinclair, Jason Camp & The Posers, The Jerry Cans, Jamie Thomson and The River Dogs (featuring Rob and Gillian Thomson, the sibling duo behind Sister Says), Polaris short-list nominees Snotty Nose Rez Kids and others, the festival continued its ongoing celebration of Indigenous talent from across Turtle Island with perhaps its most impressive lineup to date. But the music was just the beginning. Experiencing firsthand the electric atmosphere, the amazing people and the community-centric culture of Haida Gwaii left us forever changed and eager to return.
In the meantime, here’s a look back at our unforgettable time on the island.
