After a wildly successful inaugural year in 2022, the Phillips Backyard Festival Series (presented by Phillips Brewing & Malting Co and The Zone @ 91.3) is thrilled to announce it will be returning for two weekends this summer, featuring incredible headline talent alongside beloved local performers and up-and-coming Canadian artists.
The series will once again be hosted in the ‘Phillips Backyard’ with two talent-packed weekends that will bring festival, music, and beverage enthusiasts together in the heart of Victoria. ‘Tilt!’ (July 7-9) will kick-off the series with DJ Pee .Wee (otherwise known as Anderson .Paak) headlining the weekend alongside Bahamas and Lord Huron. This will be DJ Pee .Wee’s first time performing in Canada with his all-vinyl set which includes live saxophone and drums (performed by Anderson .Paak himself) that’s been delighting crowds around the US and Europe and most recently at SXSW.
Continuing the event’s commitment to highlighting diverse international talent alongside Canadian acts ‘Tilt!’ will also feature headline performances by Lord Huron, Bahamas, renowned LA-based violinist and hip-hop vocalist Sudan Archives, Montreal-based queer indie pop act Fleece, local emerging artists Pastel Blank and Nicky Mackenzie as well as fan favourite Snotty Nose Rez Kids among many others.
