About the Festival
Famously named Canada’s “tiny, perfect music festival” by Vancouver’s Georgia Straight, the Dawson City Music Festival presents three days of wildly diverse music in six venues around the tiny town of Dawson City, Yukon, in Canada’s far North. Small but mighty, the Festival has developed a reputation for unparalleled intimacy, uniqueness, production quality, and hospitality.
Visitors to the Festival enjoy the opportunity to see some of Canada’s musical heroes alongside newer and Northern talent in an astonishingly intimate setting, and to celebrate the joys of music and community under the midnight sun. Rock, blues, country, world-beat, old-time, jazz, children’s music… the Festival has something for everyone!
For many DCMF patrons, the festival is also the gateway to the Klondike region. From hiking in the Tombstone mountains, to panning for gold at the Discovery Free Claim, to lazy evening paddles down the Yukon River under the midnight sun, the Klondike is world- renowned for discovery and adventure.
The 35th Dawson City Music Festival will take place from July 19-21, 2013.
