About BCs Best Live Music


BC’s Best Live Music project helps visitors and residents find live music to enjoy in the Thompson-Nicola region and Lillooet in BC.

Through this project musicians can gain exposure and opportunities to perform, and venues that support live music are promoted.

Our mission is to provide access to musicians, bands, organizations, associations, music events, venues, and music industry resources at your fingertips with a searchable, mobile-friendly website.

BC’s Best Live Music is supported by Creative BC and the Province of British Columbia, the Thompson-Nicola Regional District Film Commission, Tourism Kamloops and Gold Country Services Society (Explore Gold Country).
