Wonderment celebrates its 5th edition in 2020, featuring events across multiple venues in Victoria over the BC Day long weekend (July 31 to August 3). 

Wonderment daytime events are free to the public, and feature live electronic and electro-acoustic music performances in public parks and other venues, with a focus on ambient and downtempo music genres.  Evening ticketed events feature experiential live electronic and multi-media performances in theatre environments, as well as dance-music events at select club venues.


Wonderment seeks live electronic musicians within the realms of ambient and electro-acoustic music, ranging from beatless space to dub techno and deep house.  Jazz artists who employ electronics in their live performances may also apply for the Sonic Jazz showcase, which will take place during the Wonderment Festival weekend.

Please include links to music and/or video, a brief bio (no more than 250 words, please include the names of artists in the project), a brief description of the gear you’d perform live on and its approximate footprint, artist webpage / soundcloud / social media, and a press photo or representative graphic for your project.

We are also interested in hearing from video and media artists to accompany our evening programming.

To apply to Wonderment, email submission@gcems.ca Deadline for applications is February 28, 2020.

Past Wonderments have been supported by the BC Arts Council, Capital Regional District, City of Victoria and the Greater Victoria Public Library, with assistance from Long & McQuade, MODO Car Co-Op, Sunbelt Rentals and Metropol Industries.
