Over the years, Locals Lounge has taken many opportunities to bring the music to the people of Vancouver. Through partnerships with local businesses and funding agencies, we have been able to transform the streets and plazas of Vancouver into live venues featuring a wide array of talented artists drawn from our community. Here's just a few examples.
Our summertime public space series. In 2020 and 2021 we transformed public spaces Downtown and in Mount Pleasant into live music venues, offering Vancouver an extra special lunch break. Presented in association with the Downtown Vancouver and Mount Pleasant Business Improvement Areas.
Vancouver Mural Festival
In 2020 and 2021 we joined forces with the Vancouver Mural Festival to present a live first-time collaboration between two local artists. The intimate series offered our audience a glimpse inside the creative process, and the opportunity to see something brand new unfold before their eyes and ears.
In 2021 and 2022 we shut down two blocks of Vancouver's storied Granville Street to cars and opened it to people in the form of live local music across multiple stages, featuring diverse selection of local sounds. In partnership with Kristina Lao, 800 Granville, The DVBIA, Telus, and Daily Hive.
