DJ Shub

An unmistakable sound: pulsing, booming powwow drums and singing mixed with house-style electric dance beats. They call it powow step. A head-bopping, dubstep-like rhythm that’s uniquely Indigenous. DJ Shub, formerly of A Tribe Called Red, is a title earning DJ and award-winning music producer.


Speed Control

Rock – real rock. Speed Control takes control of the stage with a power that will make you jump up and dance. Speed Control’s vibrant onstage energy is filled with smart humour, emotion and spirit. A trio out of the -40 degree Canadian Yukon, Graeme Peters, brother Jody Peters, and Ian March are Speed Control.



Special opening ceremonies with Kym Gouchie and the Khast’an Drummers with traditional dancer Kelsey Abraham

Hailing from the Lheidli T’enneh Nation in Prince George, B.C., Kym Gouchie channels her journey into powerful songs of pain, resilience and healing that combine elements of traditional, folk and country.
The Khast’an Drummers are a group of community members who are passionate about the power of the drum. They share songs in the Dakelh language while telling stories that preserve and help keep the traditonal knowledge alive.
