In 1998, a small group of volunteers decided that a music festival would be a joyful way to get the valley’s residents together, and hopefully help to rebuild its sagging resource-based economy.
Listening to live music under the summer sun and the evening stars created some magical memories for everyone that first year. The Discovery Coast Music Festival, as it was first known, was born! It has since then grown into the Bell Coola Music Festival.
Their mission is to create a venue for people of all walks of life to come together, to relax and to enjoy a diverse array of live performing arts. The Festival is a gathering place where the people of Bella Coola, neighboring communities and visitors celebrate their uniqueness and commonality. It is an opportunity to discover and share each others history, culture and landscape.
