CAMP WAVELENGTH 2017: DAY CAMP IN THE CITY!
New location, new format, same magical vibe
– Music – Arts – Community –
August 18-20, 2017
Due to the flooding on Toronto Island, for this year only, Camp Wavelength 2017 becomes DAY CAMP IN THE CITY!
As we are moving the festivities into the city, we are unfortunately unable to offer overnight camping at this year’s festival. But Day Camp in the City will offer an exciting mix of ticketed concerts at your favourite music venues and FREE outdoor shows in a special location, featuring our announced musical artists, along with the same magical arts and activities you’ve come to expect from Camp Wavelength – all at the same affordable, accessible prices!
The festival weekend will be split into two components: “Day Camp” will take place at the award-winning waterfront park Sherbourne Common – and will be free admission (with donations gratefully accepted) & All Ages, with a licensed area – while “Night Camp” will consist of ticketed night-time 19+ shows at The Garrison (August 18) and the Longboat Hall at The Great Hall (August 19-20).
