Seasons Festival, an electronic arts and culture festival, kicked off on Thursday, March 24, with events stretching across multiple venues around Vancouver. Celebrities Nightclub itself had shows going on upstairs in the main room as well as a smaller interactive visual and video art installation downstairs in a newly opened venue called Celebs Underground. The main venue stage featured a Monstercat showcase with several DJ’s including Congro, Stonebank, Botnek, and finally, Pegboard Nerds to end the night. Monstercat banners could be seen hanging from the ceiling among the visually intense LED lights that line all the way across the dance floor. The bass was thumping hard and the crowd was constantly in a energetic state with strobes and LED’s illuminating the room along with the beat. Meanwhile, in the downstairs section, a basement room had recently been transformed from a simple storage space into a fully functional art exhibit with minimal lighting and exposed brick lining the walls. The art exhibition was hosted by Hybridity, a creative collective based in Vancouver and New York, which is dedicated to displaying modern culture through art and music. The floor was decked out with multiple video exhibitions from local artists along with a DJ booth on the side hosting several Canadian DJ’s and electronic bands. These musical artists included Speakerface, Resorts, Radio Zero DJ’s and a number of other local DJ’s. As the night progressed, so did the energy of the eager fans stoked to finally be experiencing Seasons Festival after waiting a whole year. Vancouver’s creative culture is constantly growing and Seasons Festival is playing a huge part in getting Vancity recognized as a modern culture hub in the Pacific Northwest.
