With the inaugural Fraser Valley Music Awards (FVMA) less than six weeks away, 101.7FM CIVL Radio has announced the line-up of performers.

The nine live performances for the July 16 awards gala are: Saint Soldier (Hip-hop nominee), Harpdog Brown (Blues nominee), Matt Lowen (Folk/roots nominee), The Kwerks (Pop nominee), Kin (Experimental nominee), as well as Ria Jade, Quinn Sojonky and IshDaFish, the For and By Youth nominees who will perform a special Prince medley.

The event will also include performances by three Battle of the Bands finalists.

“The Gala is shaping up to be an outstanding show,” says FVMA Coordinator James Kasper. “Performers tend to raise their game when it comes to larger-scale events like this, so we are excited to see what hits the stage that night.”

“Between the live performances and the excitement over the awards themselves, it’ll be a memorable night,” Kasper enthused.

Tickets to this community event are available online at civl.ca/fvma. Tickets to the gala are $15 each, or incentive packages are available for concert-goers to purchase a pre-gala VIP dinner, a signed FVMA compilation album, additional event passes and more.

Funds raised through ticket and incentive sales will support current and future production costs, as well as the benefits packages for the FVMA winners and nominees.
