Hello Vancouver, we were looking forward to having our Westward main stage at City Center Artist Lodge this year but we had to make the difficult decision to move some of our lineup to the Vogue.  Your passes / tickets remain valid for the day(s) you purchased. We're looking forward to working with City Centre Artist Lodge for Westward 2025!

About the Vogue Theatre:

Locally owned and operated, Vogue Theatre is one of the last remaining theatres from Vancouver’s famed Theatre Row. Located on Granville Street, the Vogue is a graceful reminder of the Vancouver of old. Originally built in 1941 as a moviehouse and venue for the performing arts. More than seventy years later, Vogue Theatre annually hosts upwards of 200 events and continues to be one of Canada’s premier venues for live music, cinema and corporate and community events.

About City Centre Artist Lodge:

The City Centre Artist Lodge occupies the iconic former City Centre Motor Hotel in Mount Pleasant. The building is once again full of energy and life with 79 low-cost, work-only artist spaces that have been filled with intention, prioritizing underrepresented and marginalized individuals. 18,000 sq feet of artist work and exhibition space. 79 private units with over 100 artists participating!

Biltmore Cabaret:

For over 50 years, the Biltmore has been a fixture in the community as both a public house for Vancouverites and a platform for ground-breaking musical performances. With the revitalization of historic Mount Pleasant, the bar was reopened in 2007 as The Biltmore Cabaret, with a fresh focus to recapture its musical tradition. Located at 2755 Prince Edward Street.
