The 14th Annual

Under the Volcano

Festival of Art and Social change




Main Stage - Waterfront Stage - Malcolm Lowry Stage - Tribal Harmonix - Kid's Zone




The kids area is a space built especially for kids, parents, caregivers and their friends.


There are loads of fun activities to be had this year, including musical instrument/noise making workshops, recorded jam session, art and craft making to contribute to the beginnings of a UTV Kids Gallery, facepainting, and body art, the infamous Junkyard Symphony, plus other creative random happenings that are sure to evolve throughout the day!

Giant street percussion performance troupe the Infernal Noise Brigade from San Francisco will be stopping by throughout the day to spread infernal noise using horns, percussion, and their voices to add to the carnival feel of the space.


We also will have musical guests Barley Wik, old timey country strings band from Victoria BC. Water and fresh fruit will be provided as well as a quiet shaded space for napping, feeding etc.

Parents/caregivers are encouraged to participate, and supervision is a must. Despite our many fabulous volunteer play technicians, we are unable to provide childcare unless parents/caregivers are attending workshops or volunteering at the festival.


Contact Kristina if childcare is needed for either of these reasons. Come do art, make noise and play! Costumes are ALWAYS welcome!
