About Casse-Tete:

In 2013, a startlingly original music festival began in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada. It ran for five successful years before its founder and Artistic Director, Jeremy Stewart, relocated to BC’s lower mainland. Casse-Tête resumed in 2023 in a new location on the Semiahmoo Peninsula (on the unceded traditional territory of the Semiahmoo First Nation).

Casse-Tête 2024 is a production of the Casse-Tête Institute Society, sponsored by The Canadian Music Centre and the City of Surrey, and will feature a presentation stage as part of the White Rock Jazz & Blues Festival (in partnership with the White Rock BIA). “Casse-Tête” is the French word for a puzzle, but it can also refer to a headache or a deafening noise.

The White Rock Jazz and Blues Festival is presented by RE/MAX Colonial Pacific, supported by the Province of British Columbia, and produced by the White Rock BIA, with WAVE 98.3 as media sponsor.
