Founded in 1933, Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity is a learning organization built upon an extraordinary legacy of excellence in artistic and creative development. What started as a single course in drama has grown to become the global organization leading in arts, culture, and creativity across dozens of disciplines. From our home in the stunning Canadian Rocky Mountains, Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity aims to inspire everyone who attends our campus – artists, leaders, and thinkers – to unleash their creative potential.
Time to push limits and break boundaries.
Time to adjust the Frequency.
With every extraordinary idea, there comes a time for evolution. For Freq - it’s right now.
We’ve grown up, and so has your market. We have new thoughts; different perspectives and they can no longer be contained. We are on the edge of culture, music, fashion and everything in between, giving you the most cutting edge topics, insights and opinions of the season.
Look at our faces and flip through our pages, you’ll still recognize us. We’re still a team of mentally unstable geniuses that will have you begging for more. Brashness burns in our soul, and we are ready to AMP that up.
This is our city. These are our streets.
We’ve been here, lurking in the corners, behind those incredible experiences you’ve all been having...creeping in the darkness, making sure it all goes down. Your pleasure has been our fuel.
Now is the time for the FREQ’s to step out of the shadows to tell you what’s REALLY going on.
You’ll now find us in every nook of the city. Our boutiques, bars, salons, galleries and café’s are our podiums.
We’re not your grandma’s cup of tea, or a teenager’s shot of Jack. We are an aged scotch– strong, flavorful and with a bite you can’t ignore. We’re more than a quickie leaving you unsatisfied – we’ll leave you quivering for more.
Time for you to turn the page, and find out that we mean what we write, and write what we think.
No more bullshit.
No more frills.

BeatRoute Magazine is a monthly arts and entertainment paper with a predominant focus on music – local, independent or otherwise. The paper started in June 2004 and continues to provide a healthy dose of perversity while exercising rock ‘n’ roll ethics.

FozzyFest is a three-day music and arts festival held annually in September, featuring international & local DJ’s, musicians, artists, performers and educational workshops in a spectacular setting, nestled on the shores of Lake Koocanusa, at Big Springs Campground, near Fernie, BC. While forest fires impacted the area surrounding Big Springs Campground in 2017, luckily the final impact to the campground itself was little more than some fallen ash. We’re ready to return to the beach!
FozzyFest has four artistically designed stage environments to captivate your senses and offer you plenty to see and do throughout the weekend. It will be hard to see it all! Did we mention the beautiful soft sandy beach and lake to swim in? You might need to do a double-take to realize you’re not in Mexico or Cuba.
The Forest stage and the Beach stage feature international and local headline acts. The Crystal Cave stage features local talent and surprise bonus performances by select headliners. The Apex stage hosts workshops and other community events. Scattered throughout the grounds you will find art installations and seating areas that captivate the senses.
