Wavelength Music warms up winter with the 19th annual Wavelength Winter Festival, running from February 15-17, 2019 in downtown Toronto, Canada. Adventurous music fans are invited to come get cozy at The Garrison for the Family Day weekend and discover their favourite new bands and artists of 2019 – and help us celebrate our 19th birthday!
This year’s Winter Festival comes on the heels of Wavelength’s Community Consultation event in November 2018, at which Wavelength’s staff and Board listened to feedback from community members on how our organization can grow and improve. Following some of the recommendations we heard that evening, for 2019’s Winter Festival, we have engaged a Guest Curator, Emma Bortolon-Vettor, to bring a fresh new voice to our programming mix. Emma is a musician with the Guelph, Ontario group Bonnie Trash, as well as an organizer/counsellor at Girls Rock Camp Guelph, co-creator of the FPOP collective, and an academic researching empathy training paradigms involving music.
With the aim of increasing financial compensation for musicians, this year’s line-up features a smaller number of live acts per night; creating a less crowded, more relaxed experience all around. But as always, Wavelength’s winter fest is future-forward, a “live curated mixtape” line-up of the newest, freshest and most exciting sounds in the Canadian independent music scene!
+ Visual Art Installations & Projections all weekend by: Roxanne Ignatius + General Chaos Visuals
