Welcome to Betty & Kora!


Who are Betty & Kora?

Betty & Kora are two writers and music industry professionals hailing from Vancouver, B.C. Canada.  Deeply passionate about music, arts and festival culture, the duo began their blog in April 2013, two weeks after returning from the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California.

What is Betty & Kora dot com all about?

The blog incorporates three separate, but mutually INCLUSIVE areas of focus:

1. Music festival culture and lifestyle. B&K explore the history, uniqueness and culture of music festivals throughout North America.

2. Emerging music and music trends from North America.

3. Utilizing the blog as a sharing platform. B&K encourage and welcome music submissions, stories, videos and photography from fellow festival and music lovers!

This site is dedicated to sharing experiences, stories, music, photography and media from festivals, concerts, good times and everything in between.


Why start a blog?

B&K’s day to day lives are surrounded by music.  Working in music and music festival production and promotion inspired B&K to share the sounds and stories that surround them. The sharing of music and festival media is an important part of their lives and B&K want to share it with YOU!

Where is the blog based?
