Thank you, Linda!
Linda Tanaka departs Vancouver Folk Music Festival after ten years
Following the success of our 40th anniversary festival, the Vancouver Folk Music Festival Society Board of Directors is announcing the departure of Linda Tanaka as the festival’s Artistic Managing Director.
Linda has been at the helm of the VFMF for ten years, during which time she has been an incredible champion for the festival, as well as for the artists who join us each summer at Jericho Beach Park. Under her leadership, the festival has continued to evolve as one of this city’s most recognized and beloved annual cultural events—named the ‘Best Local Music Festival’ by the Georgia Straight six years in a row—and we look forward to building upon the strong legacy she leaves behind.
We thank Linda for her decade of dedication to our organization, celebrate her accomplishments, and wish her all the best for the future as she relocates to Salmon Arm, BC.
Thank you, Vancouver!
You've voted us "Best Local Music Festival" for the 6th year in a row.
The 22nd annual Georgia Straight "Best of Vancouver 2017" poll has just been announced – and we are thrilled and honoured to be your #1 music fest pick.
This is the cherry on top of VFMF's 40th anniversary. We are supported by an amazing community of folks without whom the festival would not be able to happen. To everyone who participated, volunteered, performed, attended – and voted – for the VFMF, you are "The Best."
