Indian Summer Festival
July 11, 2019
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until July 14, 2019
The 9th annual Indian Summer Festival returns to Vancouver, bringing locally and internationally renowned artists to venues across the city. With the provocative theme of ‘Tricksters, Magicians, and Oracles’, the 2019 festival lineup features futurists, novelists, stand-up comedians, musicians and storytellers from around the world.
“What we need more than ever in the world today is a way out of the tumult that seems to surround us. For our ninth edition, we’ve invited an incredible range of artists who do that, and who are either tricksters, magicians or oracles in their own way. So they give us a way out through laughter, or conjure up a new reality for us to reach for, or light a path forward with their prophecies,” says Sirish Rao, Indian Summer Festival’s Artistic Director. “Our roster this year includes some of the most influential artists in the world. The festival, as always, is a model for what the world could look like, if we came together with all the power of human diversity, innovation, creativity, and wisdom.”
From Grammy award-winning classical guitarists to genre-bending DJs, razor sharp comedians, and award-winning novelists this year’s programming spans literary dialogues, debates, performance art, musical collaborations, interactive public art, and culinary experiences. Indian Summer Festival has made its mark on Vancouver, quickly becoming one of the city’s leading cultural events with a reputation for unusual pairings of the local with the international and the traditional with the contemporary. By creating a space in Vancouver for local and global conversations, and dissolving cultural borders, Indian Summer Festival challenges and invites artists and audiences to come together in the spirit of dialogue.
