Vancouver’s Rickshaw Theatre Celebrates 15 Year Anniversary

The Rickshaw Theatre, a cornerstone of Vancouver’s live music scene, opened its doors in June 2009 under the stewardship of local entrepreneur David Duprey. Originally an abandoned movie theatre, Duprey’s vision transformed the space into a thriving hub for live performances. In 2011, Mo Tarmohamed took over ownership, ushering in a new era for the venue.

Over its 15-year history, the Rickshaw has hosted an impressive array of talent, from local legends like D.O.A. and Skinny Puppy to rising stars such as Japandroids and The Pack AD. The venue has also welcomed acts that have gone on to achieve international acclaim, including The War on Drugs, Future Islands, and Thundercat.

To celebrate its milestone anniversary, the Rickshaw is hosting a four-night music festival this June (15th, 20th, 21st, and 23rd). The lineup features artists who have graced the Rickshaw stage multiple times, paying homage to the venue’s rich history. Notably, Bison, one of the festival’s headliners, played a pivotal role in the Rickshaw’s early years, headlining its second-anniversary show in 2011.

Tickets for individual nights are priced at $30 (plus fees), offering fans the opportunity to experience each evening’s unique lineup. For those looking to immerse themselves in the full festival experience, a limited number of four-day passes are available for $100 (plus fees).
