The GCG music festival is a celebration of funk, soul and groove music. If James Brown, Fela Kuti or Marvin Gaye were around today, they’d be dancing at this festival. Truly, the soul-inspiring and booty-shakin’ essence of Motown is fully realized with the acts playing at this year’s festival. Whether it’s the 10-piece afrobeat sensation from Vancouver, Miami Device, the instrumental virtuoso from Argentina, Gabriel Palatchi, or local retro-soul heroes from Victoria, The Chantrelles, each band has its own brand of musical beauty with one uniting factor – the groove; music that makes you move. The festival also boasts a few DJs, including the The Truth Soundsystem , that will be spinning the best in rare soul from their incredible collection of vinyl records. Their monthly event, For Dancers Only (also part of GCG’s first night) has become a must-attend event for crate-diggers and funk addicts alike. These are just a few of this year’s acts. We’re proud to be working with ten acts and four venues for this year’s festival!
We’re excited to be alive and online! Look around. We’ve got everything you need to know about the first annual Garden City Grooves Music Festival!
