Yes…. It’s true. You didn’t read that wrong. 2013 will mark the FINAL edition of Wavelength’s ALL CAPS! Island Festival, held annually at Artscape Gibraltar Point since 2009. This August will be your LAST CHANCE to camp out overnight on the Island… one last hurrah to hang out late with your friends, go swimming, have adventures, sit around a bonfire, toss a frizbee, discover some art…. And hear some awesome music in a gorgeous, unforgettable place!
For our final year, we’re offering FULL WEEKEND CAMPING, giving you the chance to camp out for two nights (Friday and Saturday) and make it a true getaway within the city.
And in support of our ALL AGES mandate, we’re also offering a special $15 Youth Pass for people 13-18.

About ALL CAPS!
The ALL CAPS! Island Festival is a festival of independent music, visual arts and community for ALL AGES presented by Wavelength – Toronto’s longest-running non-profit, artist-run concert series – at Artscape Gibraltar Point on Toronto Island. The fifth and FINAL edition of the ALL CAPS! Island Festival will take place August 10 & 11, 2013.
The aim of the ALL CAPS! Island Festival is to take independent music out of its usual context and make it accessible to new audiences – via affordable ticket prices and all-ages admittance. Blessed by beaches and parkland, Toronto Island is an oasis of calm just a 10 minute ferry ride from the city’s downtown core. The festival venue, Artscape Gibraltar Point, is a the site of a former public school converted to an artist retreat centre, which creates a gorgeous, intimate environment free of the line-ups and inconvenience of other, larger festivals.
ALL CAPS! is the only music festival at which camping is permitted within the city of Toronto. Camping is an essential part of the full ALL CAPS! experience, and this year we are offering FULL WEEKEND CAMPING, giving campers the opportunity to stay over on Friday night (August 9th) and enjoy two full days and nights on the Island!
ALL CAPS! is the stuff that life-long summer memories are made of – truly an unforgettable experience.
