Red Jam Slam Radio Festival – Idle No More
The Red Jam Slam Society exists to host events, celebrations, and annual festivals that promote and feature emerging and seasoned aboriginal artists and performers. We are creating a five day Radio festival celebrating Aboriginal Week airing live from five venues in Vancouver beautiful British Columbia and will be broadcasted from station-to-station and coast-to-coast in Canada.
The live show will also be available via podcast or Internet Stream. We’re raising funds to ensure quality of stage and broadcasts throughout the radio festival. The radio festival will run from June 17 till June 21. Click here to help Support the Festival’s crowdsourced funding.
The Red Jam Slam Radio Festival will create an opportunity for listeners and audience members to hear expressions of healing and caring for mother earth and respect for our own cultural teachings while staying in tune with others living on mother earth.

Risks & Challenges
The risks and obstacles have been to ensure a clear radio feed provided by CITR UBC Campus Radio Station from each venue to each participating station. We have tested the feed and received positive results. Your contributions will enable us to have continued success during the Red Jam Slam radio festival from June 17th -June 21st from 1PM-5PM Pacific Time.
What We Need & What You Get
What we need is money for equipment rentals and props? We also need money to fund the crews for the sound and stage to ensure a professional appearance as well to help with travel expenses. The show will appear before a live studio audience and then broadcasted from Vancouver BC to Ottawa Ontario . Even the smallest of donations will receive our gratitude and thanks larger donations will receive digital link to copies of the show. Those who can contribute more will benefit from the professional sound with a downloadable MP3 copy of the five-day performance.
