Daniel Lapp’s Joy of Life Festival is a glorious escape for your musical senses. Three incredible concerts each with their own unique flavour.

“The challenge with celebrating Canada’s 150th and deciding to program ‘all Canadian’ content is that there is SO MUCH great Canadian music – many, many concerts worth of iconic music! Each of the 3 concerts will have a ‘Canadiana’ theme and we will traverse the country from East to West, North to South celebrating our culture in music and song,” says Daniel Lapp, the inspired brains behind the Joy of Life Festival.

Friday and Saturday concerts at 7:30pm. Sunday show at 3pm.
Alix Goolden Performance Hall – 907 Pandora Ave, Victoria, BC
Purchase concerts individually or enjoy all three with a Festival Pass.
