Get ready for the ultimate mega mash up of Reggae, Rock, Pop, and a little Soul…because MAGIC! is set to ROCK the Finish Line Festival of the inaugural Rock ‘n’ Roll Oasis Vancouver Half Marathon & Cunningham Seawall 10k benefiting the John Volken Academy! Their unique blend of melodies combines Caribbean flavor, arena-size bombast, and undeniably catchy lyrics, resulting in an intoxicating musical experience! These Canadian natives have quickly made a name for themselves with their chart topping hit “Rude” and promise to deliver many more irresistible beats for you come race day!

Spirit on the Course Competition

Attention Cheer Teams and Dance Squads: We want you! High school and middle school cheer and dance teams are invited to compete in the Spirit on the Course competition. Cheer teams will line the course ready to encourage participants every step of the way. Costumes and themes are optional, smiles and enthusiasm are required.

Live Music Throughout!

Music makes up the heart and “sole” of this event. Live bands will be performing a variety of music from alternative, classic and punk rock to blues, jazz and soul along each couple kilometers of the race course. The bands set the tempo for this running party, where runners and spectators alike will be “dancin’ in the streets” to these mini-concerts.

Bands Wanted to Perform Along the Course

Is your band ready to rock for thousands of athletes and spectators? We will be recruiting the best local bands from all genres to take the stage along the course.


Be prepared to complete a contact information sheet and submit it with samples of your music, a band bio and a publicity photo.
