Livestreamed BIPOC Fest Announced; Canada's First Festival with an All Black, Indigenous & POC Artist Lineup

Canada’s first music festival with an all Black, Indigenous, and POC line up has been announced. Called BIPOC Fest, the performances will be streamed on YouTube Live on Dec. 19 and 20 from 7-9:30 p.m. EST.                        

BIPOC Fest 2020 will showcase 20 of the rising names in Canadian music. Ticket proceeds go directly to performers, collectives, and VIBE Arts, a charitable arts organization servicing marginalized youth in Toronto.                            

Some notable talent includes Natasha Fisher, a member of Long Lake #58 First Nation,; Nicole Chambers, who has made waves with her debut album Voice of Virgo; Peach Luffe, a South Korean indie dream-pop singer-songwriter; Tremayne, a Toronto-grown alternative hip-hop artist and social activist who is known for supporting various charities through his platform; and Lane Webber,  a queer singer-songwriter whose music has amassed more than 30,000 Instagram followers.

“The music industry is going through a major shift , and things need to move in the direction of better representation. BIPOC Fest is contributing to this shift," says Jessica D’Angelo of Serious Betty.
