Putting the ass in class, Join us for Vancouver's first ever Backdoor VAL NYE Multi-day Music + Art Festival. Two incredible days of world class sound and music by some of the Pacific Northwest's finest DJs, queens, princesses, freaks and surprises. Wild intimate spaces, crazy art installations and two unforgettable nights as we say bye to 2016 and hello to a brand new 2017.
Let us celebrate each other for making it through, and moving forward. As a community, as freaks, as a nightlife, as queers and allies, we have grown in this space. This is a night where you can express yourself. We are proud to welcome in 2017 with you. This is your stage, your platform, your space.
