This event takes place in the unceded territories of the Lekwungen speaking peoples, the Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations. The performances will take place in Beacon Hill Park at the Cameron Bandshell located at Arbutus Way and Chestnut Row in Victoria.
Wonderment is presented by the Garden City Electronic Music Society and supported by the Government of Canada, Creative BC, BC Arts Council, the Province of British Columbia, the Capital Regional District and the City of Victoria.
Please note that the Cameron Bandshell is set within Beacon Hill Park in an area where cars are not allowed. We apologize to anyone with mobility concerns. The closest parking is located across the street from 280 Douglas Street in the small traffic loop there, which we are working with the City of Victoria to turn into accessibility parking only for the duration of the festival. This spot is the closest parking area to the bandshell.
Vending and concession are not allowed in the park, so plan accordingly for water, food, sunscreen, etc. Please also note there can be mosquitos in Beacon Hill park around dusk.
Wonderment endeavours to leave the parks in the way we found them, so please… PACK-IT-IN / PACK-IT-OUT.
There is no smoking allowed in Victoria BC parks.
This is a FREE event, ALL are welcome.
Indigenous Artists for this Event!
With a style perpetually galvanized by darkness and haunting northern beauty, sisters, Tiffany Kuliktana Ayalik and Kayley Inuksuk Mackay, come together to create Inuit style throat singing duo, PIQSIQ. Performing ancient traditional songs and eerie new compositions, they leave their listeners enthralled with the infinity of possible answers to the question “what is the meaning of life.”
With roots in Nunavut’s Kitikmeot and Kivalliq Regions, the sisters grew up in Yellowknife, NWT, where endless sunlight shines for two short summer months and deep, wintery darkness consumes the rest of the year. These environmental extremes had a huge impact on Tiffany and Kayley’s overall aesthetic and the pair have always engrossed themselves in creating soundtracks to life that reflect this natural phenomenon.
