Garden City Grooves Music Festival Victoria BC Canada, A celebration of funk soul and groove, afro-beat, r&b, rhythm and blues, hip hop

Here We Go

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!
