Proclaimed “Canada’s tiny, perfect festival” by Vancouver’s Georgia Straight
The Dawson City Music Festival (DCMF) is a much-loved cultural event in the Yukon since 1979. Over the years, it’s grown into a world-class showcase of North American artists of varying genres, and a howling good party to boot. The festival is legendary among performers and music lovers in-the-know across Canada.
