We are so, so excited to announce our festival headliners for the year of 2018: Kimmortal and Witch Prophet! If you haven't heard about or from these individual artists, we would love to introduce you to them and we hope to see you at the festival for their performances!
Kimmortal - My name is Kim Villagante, also known as my emcee name Kimmortal. I am a queer filipin@ diasporic first generation settler-based on unceded, unsurrendered Coast Salish Territories also known as Vancouver, BC, Canada. I'm primarily known as an emcee/singer-songwriter/poet but I use music as an umbrella for all my mediums as I am an interdisciplinary type of artist. I went to school for Visual Arts and Art History and would hit up open mics and share poetry and raps on my guitar. My work has evolved since to incorporate song, poetry, rap, dance, and visuals. Listen to Kimmortal on Bandcamp!
Witch Prophet - Witch Prophet is an evolution of Toronto based, Ethiopian/Eritrean singer/songwriter Ayo Leilani. A soundscape of vocal layers, loops, and harmonies on a bed of hip hop, jazz, and soul-inspired beats. Listen to Witch Prophet on Bandcamp!
Stay tuned for other artist announcements as well as the schedule announcement within the next couple months.
