THE Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration (VIBC) Society’s 2015 City of Bhangra Festival presented by Zee TV Canada kicks off next Thursday, May 28, in the heart of Vancouver’s entertainment district at LED Bar located on 967 Granville Street.

Presented by the Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration Society (VIBC), the annual City of Bhangra Festival unites local and international artists with audiences of all ages for an all-out ten-day dance and music fest.

The Festival Kickoff presented by Denny’s Restaurant is taking it old school with Taza Beats: Throwback Edition. Celebrating their 11th year with VIBC, Vancouver’s own esteemed DJ duo DJ Lajit and DJ Reminisce will be spinning 90s beats from that golden era all night from 9 p.m. onward. Admission is $10 and can be purchased at the door.

The festival will be hosting events in both Surrey and Vancouver from May 28 to June 6. On indoor and outdoor stages, in parks and clubs, City of Bhangra Festival offers something for everyone at a great value. Be sure to join us for our closing ceremonies, Downtown Bhangra taking place on the plaza of the Vancouver Art Gallery, and the official afterparty, Bhangra + Beyond at Club FiveSixty that same evening.

10 days, 2 cities, 350+ performers, and tons of #BhangraLove. This is City of Bhangra Festival 2015!
