The Electric Love Music Festival returns to Agassiz this weekend.

This will be the third year the all-ages electronic and hip-hop music festival will take place at Cheam Fishing Village in Agassiz, and it’s in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love.

The festival includes four stages with a focus on electronic music, plus a nightly live band showcase and two hip-hop showcases. Music by Funktion One and PK Sound, international headliners such as Croatia Squad & Planet of the Drums, plus dozens of others including some of Canada’s hottest DJs, bands, and emcees from the region.

There will be zero tolerance for drugs or alcohol at the event in order to provide a safe environment for everyone, plus a dedicated green team will be on duty throughout the festival enforcing the festival’s ‘leave no trace’ policy.

The event is open to everyone. There will be a family camping area and family-oriented activities throughout the weekend, and transformational workshops that teach artistic and spiritual practices from across the globe.

Opening ceremonies for Electronic Love will pay respect to the Coast Salish people and their land which the event will be occupying.

They are involved year-round in promoting arts and culture in local communities, they help organize charity events, as well as DJ and band competitions which awards the winners generous financial prizes and time slots at the festival.
