August 5, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Back by overwhelming popular demand, after igniting our stage last year to an enthusiastic, all-ages audience, we are excited for the return of Juno-nominee and two-time Western Canadian music award nominee, recording artist Rian Peters, better known by his stage name IAMTHELIVING. Rian hails from London, United Kingdom but now calls Vancouver, BC his home.

Rian has toured and performed with the likes of Estelle, Ceelo Green and has also opened for Lauryn Hill at the Montreux Jazz Festival. Rian’s debut EP  ‘In This Thing Called Life’ was recognized by the JUNO awards with a 2021 nomination in the “Traditional R&B/Soul Recording of the Year” category. Rian was also nominated for “R&B artist of the Year” at the Western Canadian Music Awards in 2021 and in 2020.

Rian’s international perspective and wealth of life experiences shine through in his musical output–a fast-growing collection of richly written, vibrant songs that emanate authentic emotion. His songwriting is focused and poised, and it emanates intentionality. He is a multi-faceted artist committed to advancing his craft, while always remaining heartfelt and genuine. Approaching his creativity from a humanist perspective, he draws inspiration from seeing how music can connect people from all walks of life, encouraging others to live healthy, positive lives. IAMTHELIVING has 1,900,000 streams across social media platforms. IAMTHELIVING brings a high-energy, seven-piece band to our Festival Stage. It will be a big dance night!
