We’ve been through a lot this year. We’ve changed. Both locally & globally. It’s time to #cometogether. To connect. To celebrate. To create magic — together!
Our COVID-19 Safety Protocol makes sure that we put your health and ours first. We want you to feel safe & secure.
The 5X Fest Blockparty 2021 is hosted at
The Beaumont Studios, a unique venue and art gallery in Vancouver. This indoor/outdoor location is perfect for rain or shine. Our #cometogether art lounge will feature bespoke collaborations between local creatives, and provides a perfect counterpoint to live music performances.
The health and safety of our volunteers, staff, attendees and artists is of utmost importance to 5X. We are committed to following the indoor and outdoor events guidelines provided by BC’s Provincial Health Officer as part of Step 3 of BC’s provincial Restart Plan.
Vaccine passports will be required to enter the premises. We will be following current mask mandates. Ample hand sanitizer and hand washing stations will be available. All staff and volunteers are double vaccinated, trained in Actsafe’s BSAFE COVID safety protocols, and will be wearing masks at all times.
A huge thank you for supporting us while staying safe and protecting the community.
We recognize that our festival is taking place on the traditional unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations.
