5X Music Festival Triples In Size During Global Pandemic

5X

Normally the Diwali season would be full of galas, parties, and events; however unfortunately this year, as we battle a global pandemic we struggle with finding ways to celebrate Diwali in smaller, more intimate ways. This hasn’t held the local music festival, 5X Festival back, who will be celebrating Diwali with their 5X MainStage event on November 14 and 15th. Over the past few months, the festival has gone global and tripled its engagement with over 30k digital festival attendees versus their average of 10k in-person attendees.

Their MainStage event will include headliners: The Sandy Lion, Kay Ray, Avan Jogia, Pallavi Sharda, Alok Menon, BFunk, Navpreet Banga of Brown Girl Lifts, and Sangtar.

The digital festival has already featured the likes of Lisa Ray, Jazzy B, Cartel Madras, Saint Soldier, Raaginder, Horsepowar – all providing exclusive content specifically for the 5X Festival audience.

The festival app, powered by global wellness and fan engagement platform Stepathlon, has provided a positive alternative outlet for so many South Asian students and young adults who otherwise have a lack of outlets during these unprecedented times. The app provides a place for creativity to bloom, encourage physical activity, and to connect with other like-minded youth from across the globe.

For those still interested in participating and taking part in the 5X Mainstage, the 5X Race to the Stage app is available on iOS and Android devices through the App Store. The journey continues through to November 13 with the finale 5X Mainstage two-day experience taking place on November 14 & 15, 2020. For more information, please visit www.5xfest.com.

5X Festival gratefully acknowledges the support of the City of Surrey, City of Vancouver, Canada Council for the Arts, the Government of Canada, the BC Arts Council, and the Province of British Columbia.
