Festival information



Visiting the pristine Islands of Haida Gwaii is likely on your lifetime To Do list (and if it isn’t, it should be).  There are countless reasons to experience this remote corner of the world – natural untouched beauty, fresh seafood, stunning vistas, friendly locals, and Haida Culture.  The beginning of August brings one more reason to visit – The Edge of the World Music Festival held at the Tlell Fall Fairgrounds, Tlell.


The biggest live music event on Island, the Edge of the World Music Festival has been entertaining audiences for many years.  Featuring a wonderful mix of local talent and off-island guests, our festival has something for everyone.  Opening and closing with traditional Haida song and dance, the EOTW music festival endeavours to bring you a wide selection of musical acts – First nations, world beat, electronica, blues, rock, folk, reggae, country, hip-hop and everything in between.  In addition to that, there are fringe performers, a children’s area with creative and fun activities, a great selection of food and merchandise vendors, and amazing workshops put on by the artists for everyone to enjoy.


So bring your blanket, your dancing shoes, and prepare to enjoy one of the most memorable musical events in Northern British Columbia.
