About Iron Mic Music Fest

Iron Mic is the first of its kind for Western Canada – an indoor multi-headliner hip hop festival offered to all ages. It wasn’t smooth sailing to make this festival happen but with the enormous support of our hip hop community and our loyal partners, we are pleased to bring you this unique event.

Iron Mic: a ductile, malleable, silver-white metallic element and a conductor for lightning. Lightning is the energy the Mic sends off. It’s the control over the crowd, the mystical power which hypnotizes its audience giving the holder of the Mic immortal-like powers – lightning strikes the Mic for he who holds the Mic!

The Mic is both symbolic and literal. Life’s many obstacles will keep you from the Iron Mic. Once you overcome and conquer these obstacles, you will be the holder of the Mic and its infinite powers.

Community – Stay tuned as we are close to determining a local charity we will be donating portions of proceeds for in efforts to giveback and help our community.
