Held each fall, local youth singers, songwriters, solo artists, bands and DJs receive development and mentorship.

Band-Aid emerged out of the community. Youth musicians want to use their powers for good—to create a positive culture for young bands in Surrey. They want to collaborate, work together and learn together. Band-Aid is presented in partnership with Surrey Civic TheatresSurrey Youth, and Healthy Communities.
