VIBC is a not-for-profit organization based in Vancouver, BC.
Our main initiative is 5X, a global brand and online community.


5X champions South Asian youth culture for ages 16-35. We bring the liberated spaces of social media into a real, physical experience in a series of festivals and conferences in cities across the world.

Our Vision

Progressive South Asian artistic expression that thrives and positively inspires.

Our Mission

We will be the essential festival, event series and online community inspired by Punjabi culture for artists and young South Asians hungry for experiences that speak to their hybrid identity.

A revolution by us that ripples across the world.

Past Performers

We have evolved into a complex and thoughtful community institution with sophisticated production capabilities... who knew?
