Artists, Poster Reveal, SINGLE TICKETS!
Did you catch today’s edition of Airplay on CBC Yukon? Celebration is in the air, and just in time for the height of summer, we’ve announced 5 exciting acts. Added to the bill is the unmistakable, Polaris Prize-nominated, THUNDEROUS rock band Yamantaka // Sonic Titan; the undeniably powerful Hip-Hop duo Snotty Nose Rez Kids who proudly hail from the Haisla Nation and craft politically charged, energetic tracks reminiscent of early 90’s rap; Indie-rock-and-roll-super-fun-dance-party band Goodnight, Sunrise; DJ, songwriter, producer, activist and community organizer Chippy Nonstop who will be at DCMF to facilitate Intersessions and to hit the decks; and local favourite Jesse Smith, who to the delight of locals and visitors alike, will grace the mainstage this year!
And don’t forget – head to Dawson a day ahead of time to catch the legendary Thursday night concert at the Palace Grand Theatre with Madame Gandhi and The Dakhká Khwáan Dancers & DASH.
Many thanks to our funders, partners, sponsors and volunteers, all of whom make the magic happen! We also wish to acknowledge the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in First Nation, whose Traditional Territory we gratefully live, work, and organize within. If you are reading this, we encourage you to attend the 2018 Aboriginal Day Celebrations tomorrow (June 21st) at the beautiful Dänojà Zho Cultural Centre! Can’t make it? Our friends at CFYT Radio Station will broadcast the events live! Mähsi Cho!
