An art gallery, a bhangra competition, and a block party. 5X is where you claim your space, express your identity, and transform the world around you.
For over 13 years, VIBC created inclusive communities through the joy of bhangra and the City of Bhangra festival in Vancouver, Canada where more than 10,000 attendees enjoyed dances, musical performances and events right in the heart of downtown Vancouver.
In 2018, it transformed in to 5X: the festival where South Asian identity and culture is expressed, connected, multiplied and transformed.
With new and rebooted events, we moved closer to the dream of a world class festival and conference showcasing contemporary desi culture from around the globe.
2018 marked our first 5X block party, bhangra battles, art nights, workshops and talks. With over 10,000 attendees, we launched the new festival with momentum that will empower it to continue leading the South Asian diaspora in to the future.
5X isn’t a movement. It’s where the movement happens.
