Get ready for some summery bops.
Kitsilano’s biggest block party will feel like an IRL music video.
Khatsahlano Street Party is once again taking over West 4th Avenue this summer and we’re not complaining. Spanning West 4th Avenue, the festival’s soundtrack will turn the ten blocks of food trucks, beer and seltzer gardens, games and shopping into the ultimate summer vibe on July 9, 2022.
The festival playlist curated by Zulu Records will feature melodic, punk and even Australian folk rock performances and other genres of music.
Love is in the air and at the festival too! Watch out for not one or two but eight brides getting married in Khatsahlano this year.
There will also be a Host Nations Pavilion to showcase local Indigenous artists from the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations, such as basket weaving, live carving and an Indigenous market.
