With live venues closed, shows and festivals postponed or cancelled, and reopening dates for the sector still being determined, SoundON is helping to lead the way back for BC’s music sector.

SoundON provides BC presenters and artists with direct support to get back to doing what they do best: creating unforgettable live music experiences.

SoundON is collaborating with public and private partners to build a unique platform to celebrate the resilience of our community and raise funds for the recovery of our sector. It’s not just a relief campaign, it’s a whole new way to discover BC music through curated, online experiences. Streaming live music performances, concerts, DJ sets and workshops, all on one free website, SoundON will have something for everyone to enjoy.

SoundON connects BC presenters, artists, and audiences.
