Bass Coast releases 6th edition fundraiser album, benefitting Nicola Valley Food Bank

The Pacific Northwest floods that caused many communities in British Columbia to evacuate in November of 2021 are still having an impact to this day. The flooding was caused from a triple atmospheric river event, which flooded the Coldwater River and forced many Merritt residents to evacuate.

As many as 5% of Merritt residents still don’t have a home to return to. Further complicating the issue, the Statistics Canada website states that grocery store food prices have risen at a rate not seen since 1981. The Nicola Valley Food Bank has been a lifeline for displaced people, supporting a record number of recipients through food assistance.

To aid the efforts of the Nicola Valley Food Bank, Bass Coast Music Festival has released the sixth edition of its 12 Days fundraiser album. People can pay $10 CAD (or more) and support a worthy cause. You can purchase the album and donate to the fundraiser on the Bass Coast Bandcamp page. In prior years, Bass Coast Festivals previous 12 Days editions have donated 100% of the proceeds from the album directly to the Nicola Valley Food Bank.

The 12 Days compilation album features tracks from many artists throughout Bass Coast Festival’s history, including a track from festival co-founder Andrea Graham, aka The Librarian. Also featured on the album are several collabs: one of which features DJ Shub and Handsome Tiger. The former won a “Contemporary Indigenous Artist of the Year” Juno award for his War Club album. Another such collab are Bass Coast alums Mat the Alien and Outsider on their track titled Champions Request.

Other artists featured include Vancouver duo Sabota, Tor, and many many more.

The 15th iteration of Bass Coast Music Festival takes place from July 7-10 on shared traditional territories of the Nłeʔkepmx and Syilx in British Columbia. The first wave of the lineup has been released and tickets are still available for purchase.

As I've always lived in the Pacific Northwest, I've been fortunate enough to explore the beautiful province of British Columbia and its vibrant culture. When I'm not writing about music, I enjoy hiking in the mountains, trying out new recipes with ingredients from local farmers' markets, and spending time with my family and friends. I also have a passion for sustainability, harm reduction and environmental conservation, and try to incorporate these values into my everyday life. Thanks for taking the time to learn a little bit about me!
