Festival information

Powell River, BC

Jul 28, 2022 - Jul 31, 2022




Started as a passion project by father and son duo, John and Lando Taves, Powntown Shakedown is more than just another music festival. They had a simple vision: Live music, community, inclusiveness and togetherness. What became of it is just that and more! With a musically diverse selection of artists and a common love of music, the atmosphere of the festival is just indescribable.

With a full-blown volunteer community, this festival continued on for a 2nd year running in 2022 with 28 acts over 4 days. In support of the Powell River community, the first day of the festival is by donation at the door and 100% of donations will be collected by the Powell River Hospice Society.
