Wavelength Summer Thing is the latest iteration in summer music gatherings by Wavelength Music, Toronto’s artist-run live music non-profit since 2000, marking a return to open-air environs following previous events at Fort York and Toronto Island. From August 18 to 20 as part of SummerSeries in Trillium Park at Ontario Place, the Wavelength Summer Thing will showcase a diverse, inclusive and uplifting lineup of artists curated by Anishinaabe musician/composer Daniel Monkman (of moccasin-gaze band Zoon and JUNO-nominated rock band Ombiigizi) that will encompass hip-hop, R&B, electronic, and indie music in this celebration of togetherness by the waves.
