"We've been bringing A Tribe Called Red to Winnipeg for Aboriginal Music Week since 2010 and our audience loves the music and party vibe that they create," says festival chairperson Alan Greyeyes. "So we're going to build on that with a big night that showcases Indigenous producers and hip hop artists who sample traditional vocals and instrumentation along with Native DJs who simply know how to keep the party going."

"kimiwan 'zine is excited to partner with Aboriginal Music Week to present and support independent Indigenous artists like Mob Bounce," says Jarita Greyeyes, Community Relations for kimiwan.

kimiwan is a quarterly publication that showcases words and art from emerging and established Indigenous, First Nations, Métis, and Inuit writers and artists. Please visit for more information.

Check out our Saturday Night Summer Jam playlist for a taste of the music that's gonna be performed and played at the party.

The Saturday Night Summer Jam will also include our ever-popular festival photobooth for free party portraits of our guests. Since we launched the booth in 2010, it has captured individual portraits, great moments between friends, and professionally lit shots of fans with their favorite artists.


The photos aren't mandatory- simply stand in front of the lights for your free session. The festival posts them online shortly after the event for everyone to share and enjoy.

Visit our Facebook page for more shots from our photobooth.


Aboriginal Music Week celebrates the fact that Indigenous artists around the world are creating music that crosses almost all musical and physical borders, without regret.
