Born in the minds of the Curious council. Our family friendly festival is now in its 4th year. Curiosity music festival has grown in leaps and bounds since its inception. This year proves to be no different. A beautiful acreage located off highway 5a in the southern interior of British Columbia with its own private lake and incredible mountain and valley views.

Featuring many popular DJs and artists from throughout Canada and around the world including but not limited to Stylus Beats and Abstrakt Sonance, plus many more. Not forgetting to highlight the local talents available throughout BC. Each stage will bring a unique sound and experience to Curiosity this year. Our Beach stage overlooking the lake will hold daily yoga sessions before easing our guests into a day of incredible music. Each stages sounds and environment will offer a different environment. Each afternoon Illuminati and Citadel stages will fire up showcasing artists from around the world until the sun rises.

This year we will also be including art walks and theme camps to enhance the experience. Unique and individual ideas will increase the overall feel of our festival allowing for expression on a whole new level. Our vending village will be stocked with treasures from near and far. New and returning vendors offering all your festival needs. Returning food vendors will feed our guests, staff and artists thorough out the weekend. Offering a variety of food, from vegan options to carnivorous choices.

Workshops will be another wonderful continuation this year. Varying from yoga workshops to wire wraps and everything in between. Our experienced teachers will guide guests through the processes involved in their particular craft. Another amazing year is planned for 2019. We would love for you to be a part of it.
