Come celebrate the season with the most cosmopolitan and festive crowd in town on Saturday, December 21 at the Backstage Lounge.
It’s time again for the holiday edition of Electropical. The concept is quite simple: if you have an office Christmas party that night, please go — it won’t hurt as much as you think.
Then gather your favourite co-workers and bring them down to the Backstage Lounge to bring the party to a new level of fun. We’ll serve up festive beats from all curves of the globe!
Liam MacDonald, Sacha Levin, and Yoro Noukoussi
This just in… For this Saturday’s 9th anniversary edition of Electropical, we’ll have the pleasure and the abundance of three percussionists! Sacha “Percussionista” Levin, Liam MacDonald, and long-time collaborator Yoro Noukoussi will share the stage with us.
They’ll help us celebrate nine years of urban sounds with a tropical edge. Once again, huge thanks to all our musical collaborators, the Backstage Lounge, and — most of all — our many loyal guests who have supported us for almost a decade. We couldn’t do it without you!
Electropical turns nine this month, and we’re gearing up to celebrate.
Join us on Saturday, November 16 at the Backstage Lounge and help us mark nine years of urban sounds with a tropical edge.
We’re working on a special evening for you. More details to come.

We’re excited to announce that our guest percussionist for the October edition of Electropical will be Liam MacDonald.
Liam is a master player of the pandeiro (essentially the tambourine’s Brazilian cousin), and is equally in demand for his drum-set playing as well as his abilities as a multi-percussionist.
He has been working with an extremely eclectic mix of projects in Vancouver — Brazilian, Arabic, fusion — there is no music that Liam cannot play.
Electropicalistas, you’re in for a treat!
Mark your calendars now for the next edition of Electropical on Saturday, October 19 at the Backstage Lounge.
We’ll serve up scintillating sounds from the five continents to the most open-minded and diverse crowd in Vancouver.
New and classic tracks this month from Brussels, Caracas, and Dakar via NYC.
DJ Agent Mulda
Agent Mulda will be our guest DJ at Electropical this Saturday, September 21.
You’ve probably seen Agent Mulda (a.k.a. Tyler Mulder) on the decks at one of the many reggae, soca, and other Afro/Caribbean music events he’s produced in the Lower Mainland over the years. It’s his first appearance at Electropical, and we’re excited about it.
He recently returned from the Grenada Carnival, as well as stops in Trinidad & Tobago, so we’re looking forward to hearing some of the new sounds he picked up along the way.
Join us as we celebrate Vancouver’s epic summer and welcome autumn this Saturday at the Backstage Lounge.

New tracks this month from Cairo, Paris, and Buenos Aires.
And we’ll dig deep into our ever-expanding collections of African rhythms, Arabian waves, Brazilian beats, Caribbean sounds, and Balkan bangers to keep you moving.
DJ Marc Fournier is launching a new evening of music for those who prefer the music to be a little less loud and for those who cannot always come out late.
In fact, it’s just another occasion to share some sunny music, great food & drinks, with good friends, just after your workday!
Ah, the dog days of summer are here. Here’s hoping you get to kick back and enjoy some fun in the sun, wherever the rest of your summer takes you.
We’ll be soaking up the sounds of the season over the next couple of weeks, and we look forward to sharing them with you when the 100th edition of Electropical happens on Saturday, August 17 at the Backstage Lounge.
Plus, DJ Marc Fournier turns 21 again the weekend of the August Electropical, so come celebrate with us!
Electropical DJs Marc and Michael will spin some Brazilian music on the Robson Stage of the Afro-Brazilian Carnaval this Sunday, July 28. We’re on from 4 to 6 pm. Axé Capoeira is producing this third annual event on Granville St between Robson and Smithe.
We’ll play some Forró, Maracatu, Funk, Samba, Frevo, Samba Reggae, Axé, Funk, and more.
The event is expected to draw thousands of people for a full day of performances, including traditional dance, music, and Capoeira. It’s a huge Brazilian street party not to be missed!
