Otalith 2014

Otalith Festival




Kathryn Calder knew we had something special when she named us the “bestival”. Our community of Otalith-ees called us one of the most intimate music festivals in the world – a destination festival without the rush. We are, after all, on island time. And now we’re back for Round 2.

The 2nd annual Otalith Music Festival happens this August 22 and 23. Otalith is run by a small group of volunteers with a desire to bring exceptional live music to the west coast of Vancouver Island. Hosted in both Tofino and Ucluelet, Otalith is a festival on the coast, for the coast.

Last year, Otalith raised $3,000 for the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust – a local non-profit that supports conservation, education and research within the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and $1,000 for Ucluelet Secondary School’s Drug Free scholarship. This year, part proceeds from Otalith will support our partners: the Jamie Collins Legacy Fund, Pacific Wild, and Central Westcoast Forest Society.

Otalith is expanding this year by adding four performances in Tofino on Friday night. Like last year, Ucluelet and its sprawling coastal temperate rainforest will play host to the main festival grounds with an intimate Friday night showcase and a guaranteed raucous good time all day and night on Saturday.
