2012 - 2014

"A Waterfront Escape into Music and Arts"

Keloha Music & Arts Festival ran from 2012 through 2014 and introduced a wide variety of indie, alt and rock music to Kelowna music fans.

While Keloha only took place for a handful of years, it brought a totally different festival experience to Kelowna while it lasted. Indie artists, rock and alternative bands, and a host of vendors filled Kelowna's Waterfront Park for 3 days each year and drew large crowds, especially during its innaugural festival.

The setting, in Waterfront Park, offering views up and down the 88 mile Okanagan Lake, created a unique family environment for the festival. The whole feel and vibe was significantly different from Kelowna's other major summer festival at the time, Center Of Gravity.

2012 saw the festival bring in artists such as The Linousines, Tokyo Police Club, Daniel Wesley, Kytami, The Boom Booms, Dan Mangan, Devon Coyote, Hey Ocean!, Michael Bernard Fitzgerald, and The Sheepdogs. Hey Ocean! would go on to be nominated for the Juno award for Breakthrough Group of the Year in 2013.
