“We’re thrilled to be bringing it back for its ninth year in Victoria and eighth year in Vancouver,” Scott Gurney, director of 17 Black Events, said in a statement.

Tickets for Vancouver’s Sept. 26 festival go on sale July 14.

“We’ve got a great roster of newcomers and fan favourites lined up and are working hard to make sure this year’s return is an extra special one that continues to highlight the amazing food, drink, farms and purveyors we have access to here in B.C.,” Gurney said.

Special guest performers will join festival mainstay The Electric Timber Company in providing music to accompany the beast and brew blowout.
