10 Things to Love About the Upcoming 10th Anniversary Push Festival Launch Party

October 28, 2013

There are only 10 DAYS until we launch our 10th Anniversary PuSh Festival program and tickets! To celebrate, we’re counting down 10 Things to Love about the upcoming 10th Anniversary PuSh Festival Launch Party:

#10. It’s an impressive music night curated by Woodpigeon and produced by Secret Study, the same people who bring us music at PechaKucha Night Vancouver, Playground and Celebration of Light’s SHOREfest! (That’s actually, like, two things…). The confirmed line-up is: Veda HilleWoodpigeonBocephus KingWintermittsJim Byrnes, Coastal Sound Youth Choir, Corbin Murdoch (of The Nautical Miles), Colin Cowan & The Elastic Stars, and BRASSTRONAUT; MC’d by Vancouver comedy king, Charles Demers!

#9. We’re also launching the exciting new 2014 PuSh Festival Program Guide! Get ALL the details about this winter’s hottest local and visiting shows before anyone ELSE in Vancouver, and LEAVE with your very own sleek black & green copy of guide to keep! Here’s a sneak peek of the guide:


#8. It’s a live music covers night – talented local bands like Wintermitts, BRASSTRONAUT and Bocephus King will cover other great Vancouver songsmiths. Guess who’s covering this tune…? It’s too good to miss!

And this:

#7. It’s incredibly great value – If you add the price of tickets for each performer’s usual show cost, you’re looking at a value of over $150!!! Luckily, we made it easy for you, and you get to spend only $45! You’re welcome.

#6. It’s at The Imperial – fancy!


#5. There’s going to be a silent auction with these great prizes… Shhhh….
You could quietly bargain shop for a trip to Victoria or Whistler whilst having fun with your friends partying the night away for a good cause.

#4. There’s a great ticket deal for the savvy-spender. For $100, your ticket could also include an exclusive pre-reception (from 6:00-7:00pm) where light refreshments and drinks will be served, AND you’ll receive a $50 tax receipt!

#3. It’s basically a Vancouver love-in… Vancouver artists, covering Vancouver musicians, in Vancouver, at a fundraiser for an independent Vancouver arts festival. Vancouver, Vancouver, Vancouver. We heart Vancouver, forever.

#2. It’s our FUNDRAISER – that means every dollar that you put into the evening goes directly toward making the 2014 PuSh Festival a successful reality. Your dollars will directly help to do everything from flying artists into Vancouver, feeding our volunteers, right to keeping the heat running in the middle of winter at Club PuSh! The possibilities are only as endless as the support we receive. We’ve come a long way from presenting three unforgettable shows in 2003, to showcasing dozens of local and international innovative and groundbreaking artists, talks, films and more. The PuSh International Performing Arts Festival has since become one of Vancouver’s signature arts events.

#1. You’ll be celebrating PuSh Festival’s 10th Anniversary. Let’s celebrate 10 successful founding years, and look forward to at least 10 more. It’s our birthday, but we’re celebrating it with everyone, because you are all part of our story.
