Because we have been waiting for you for a decade

The Only Trust

We’re the Only Trust.

We publish online and a fortnightly magazine entitled Only distributed throughout Vancouver; organise the annual Music Waste independent music festival; and present the annual Victory Square Block party in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. We do some other things, too, as the mood strikes us.

We’re not a trust in the legal sense—it’s just a nickname. Each of our projects have varying degrees of autonomy but share the same core group of people. More importantly, they share the same values of excellence, focus on independent culture, and avoidance of exploitation.
Published weekdays, the Only online reports on independent music, art, film, science, and media.

Only Magazine
Published on the first and fifteenth of each month from September to May, Only focuses on independent music, film, and art from a Vancouver perspective.
