Astrocolor completes lineup for Colwood’s Eats and Beats Beach Party – Victoria News

The City of Colwood has announced Victoria’s own Astrocolor as the final band to perform at this year’s Eats and Beats Beach Party.

After performing at the Laketown Shakedown and JazzFest, Astrocolor joins headliners Said the Whale and three other local bands at the July 30th event, taking place on the beach at Esquimalt Lagoon on Ocean Boulevard.

Described as “on the verge of funky house, breakbeat, jazz and ambient,” the band is known for their smooth sound that combines “hypnotic” instrumentals and “spacey” vocals.

Local bands also scheduled for the 30th include The New Groovement, Downtown Mischief and OK Charlie.

From 1pm to 8pm, the beach is lined with 40 unique local vendors, food trucks and activities ranging from free paddleboard tests to a rock climbing wall. Of course, no beach party would be complete without refreshing beverages, and the Victoria Beer Society will be on hand with beach service.

Two Eats and Beats shuttle buses operate throughout the day between the event site and the Park and Ride on Ocean Boulevard and Island Highway, giving you easy access to the event without having to drive down. Biking is also recommended, as the Galloping Goose Regional Trail takes you right to the top of Ocean Boulevard, and bike parking is available.

Vehicles can access Ocean Boulevard and the usual busy and limited parking will be available there, but the road will be closed for a day about halfway to the event site.
