About Us

We Love Music

The Sunshine Music festival is a much loved non-profit festival put together by a group of dedicated locals and volunteers who are passionate about celebrating music. Each year on Labour Day weekend we welcome a diverse and respectful crowd to a celebration of world-class music from across Canada and the world.

For over 40 years we have been hosting a variety of exceptionally talented performers on our beachfront stage at Palm Beach Regional Park. Located in qathet, BC, just south of Powell River, this spectacular location is the traditional territory of the Tla’amin Nation.

Many thanks to our musicians, artisans, volunteers, vendors and fans — we can’t wait to see you again!
