Wavelength ushers in 2023 with the first in-person edition of the Wavelength Winter Festival in three years. Curated by Daniel Monkman (Zoon, Ombiigizi), the festival champions the resilience of grassroots artists, puts the spotlight on Indigenous creativity, animates both new and iconic spaces for live music in Toronto, and celebrates the ongoing influence of Canadian independent record label Constellation Records. Taking place over the second weekend of March at a new pop-up venue at 805 Dovercourt Road along with two larger special events later in the month, the Wavelength Winter Festival is sure to warm the ears of sonic adventurers in the waning weeks of the chilly season.
