About MASSiF Music Festival Society
Massif Music Festival takes place in Nelson BC, on the land of the Syilx tmixʷ(Okanagan), Sinixt, and Ktunaxa. Founded in 2016, Massif Music Festival Society is a non-profit music promotion society with a volunteer board of directors who designate roles to volunteer committees.
MASSiF Festival happens every year on the third weekend in September, at venues within downtown Nelson.
MASSiF Festival is almost entirely supported by festival pass holders and community business sponsors and donations. All of our profits go to the artists.
MISSION: To bring underrepresented music to the Kootenay region, within an intimate and unique festival experience designed to foster connections among artists and between fans, featuring a carefully curated line up of diverse, underground and overlooked musicians.
VISION: A regional music festival featuring acts conscientiously chosen to represent diversity within the underground music scene.
– Create a supportive festival opportunity for women and non-binary artists.
– Provide local bands and aspiring Kootenay musicians a place to be inspired and to perform.
– Champion underrepresented music.
– Expose rural festival-goers to music not otherwise available in the Kootenay region.
The grant is for Project Assistance from the British Columbia Arts Council (read more here: https://news.gov.bc.ca/releases/2019TAC0032-000798?fbclid=IwAR1Rt_Nj3W0trtuYyW4dSGWtlged-vziSekFL6MKDNbKAyLG1bXvHzSdpCA)
We got 144 submissions, and we have to make some tough choices as we narrow it down to less than 25 bands for the festival. We will be in contact with your band after April 1, 2019, so please don’t email to check on your submission 🙂
And now, we’ve got a lot of work to do! Thank you for supporting MASSiF 2019!!
