August 18 - 20 in Cumberland, BC

Atmosphere is an intimate west coast festival that happens in the Village of Cumberland every August.

Collaborative forces Cumberland Village Works, Mt. Eliah Presents and the festival friendly community of Cumberland are stoked to serve up the 4th course of Atmosphere Gathering this August 18, 19 & 20, 2017.

We take three stages of musical mastery, mind tingling workshops and place it upon a beautiful landscape sprinkled heavily with art and splendour. Then we mix it with serious dance-off competitions and ridiculous games. Next we throw in two handfuls of culinary and market-type vendors. Finally we spread it onto a thick layer of beautiful happy people and bake it in the sun for three days.

Our secret ingredient? You.

This is not a spectator festival. We want the full flavour! Spice yourself up, unleash your full zest. Grind down, rise up and savour it all.

“I came to Atmosphere alone, looking for a weekend to connect with others. I came away with a festival family tighter than I could have imagined. First Nations people were not only honoured but showcased, from the opening ceremonies to the talent featured over the weekend. A wonderfully eccelctic collection of acts, a family friendly event that appealed to the circus lover in me. I cannot say enough lovely things about Atmosphere or Cumberland. Thank you for welcoming us!!” ~ Em Squared

“To say this festival is worth experiencing is an understatement. After this, my second year in attendance, I consider this space home. A gathering full of open hearted and talented creators, in a town full of open minded and welcoming neighbours…” ~ Katherine R.
