Vancouver's Zolas announced as the headliners for the 2017 edition of Khatsahlano Street Party
Vancouver indie kings the Zolas have been announced at the headliners for this year’s Khatsahlano Street Party.
As with past editions of what’s become one of the city’s most massively popular events, the supporting lineup features a mixture local veterans and highly-touted newcomers. Top-billed acts include fast-rising garage-pop trio the Courtneys, punk pioneers D.O.A., indie chanteuse Louise Burns, and postgrunge mixologists War Baby.
Music fans will be able to swing from folk-country duo Twin Bandit to art-pop renegade Art D’Ecco, to new-wave revivalists Actors. And that’s just the tip of a musical lineup that features 40 acts, carefully curated by the staff at Vancouver’s fabled Zulu Records.
Bands will peform on stages set up on a 10-block stretch of West Fourth Avenue, with the day starting at 11 and wrapping at 9 pm following the Zolas’ performance at the main Burrard Stage (which is presented by both TD and the fine people at the Georgia Straight).
As always, music won’t be the sole attraction at the Khatsahlano Street Party.
The morning will kick off with a yoga class at the West 4th Living Stage at Yew Street, with cooking demonstrations, fashion shows, and fitness classes to follow.
Food, drink, ice cream, and more will be available at the patios, restaurants, and over 50 food trucks that will dot West Fourth Avenue. And for those who understand that nothing goes better with a massive party than beer, there will be five Miller Street Beer Gardens locations on site.
Stores along West Fourth will open in case you forget your sunglasses, yoga pants, or whatever else you need to get through the day.
