Memphis Mike's BBQ Food Truck - If it ain't all over your face, it ain't real BBQ!

Good Company Lager Truck - There's nothing quite like some Good Company

Our house DJ will get the party started in the parking lot.


Ezra's Afro Reggae World Beat cranks up the energy inside on the Bez stage.

Your ticket get you into the 8PM show but come early and enjoy the pre-show fun.

Ezra Kwizera is an international artist and his music style is richly multi‐cultural – a zesty yet soulful mix of Reggae, Soca, East African Bongo, and Pop.

We first met Ezra in Rwanda in 2001 while partnering on a reconciliation project. We have loved him and his infectious music ever since. He is loved by many back in Africa and here in Surrey he is loved even more by his wife and 2 kids. Vancouver Folk Festival has finally “discovered” him and invited him and his world beat band this summer and as a follow up, he will be at BEZ!

With linguistic agility, Ezra fluidly sings and raps in English, Kinyarwanda, Luganda, Zulu and Swahili. Growing up as a refugee in Uganda before moving back to his home country Rwanda after the 1994 genocide, Ezra has a powerful motivation to support Rwandans through his music to rebuild their country. His music conveys the spark of an overcomer and the passion of a community leader with a vision to inspire change in his generation. He currently lives in BC, Canada.
