Established in 2010, the 5 Artists 1 Love music concert quickly became a must see event in the city of Edmonton, and provided a much needed stage for the wealth of diversely talented singers, musicians, poets, and dancers that call the city home. 

With  a proud focus on the unique and historical impact that black music and poetry has had on the world, the 5 Artists 1 Love music concert has grown and expanded from a small local event to a world class concert experience hosted at some of Edmonton's most renowned performance venues. The show sells out quickly every year, so get your tickets early!
