The first round of festivals and shows will begin streaming this Saturday, July 18th at SoundON.ca. This will include 11 shows curated by BC’s most beloved festivals and emerging presenters from across the province, including: FVDED in the Park, Bass Coast, and Midsummer Music Festival, as well as Afro Van Connect’s Black Space Jam and Virtual Feast, a collaborative showcase of more than 40 Indigenous artists, presented by Full Circle, 2Rivers Remix, Savage Society, and Vines Festival.
In partnership with Music Heals, the Unison Benevolent Fund, and Charitable Impact, SoundON also provides an opportunity to invest in the power of music during a time of crisis. SoundON presentations will give audiences the ability to contribute support to BC's music community for counselling services, financial assistance, and health and wellness programs.

SoundON is a unique platform to celebrate BC musicians and raise funds for BC’s music community. SoundON provides BC presenters and artists with direct support to get back to doing what they do best: creating unforgettable live music experiences. But it’s more than a relief campaign, it’s a whole new way to discover BC music through curated, online experiences. Streaming live music performances, concerts, DJ sets and workshops, all on one free website, SoundON will have something for everyone to enjoy. All funds raised will support BC artists, presenters, venues, crew, more SoundON shows, and charitable causes across BC. With your support, we can help bring the music back to BC!
SoundON is a cross-sector collaboration between public, private, and community partners, produced and run by a volunteer collective from BC’s music sector.
