Wavelength Music warms up winter with the launch to their 20th anniversary year and the Wavelength Winter Festival, a live curated mixtape featuring twenty of the best independent music artists from the Canadian underground scene February 13-16, 2020. The festival launches Thursday, February 13, exactly 20 years since Wavelength’s first show at Ted’s Wrecking Yard. Despite that venue being a distant memory, Wavelength will provide a nostalgic nod to its older days by presenting the first night of the festival at Sneaky Dee’s! Festival venues also include Longboat Hall (Fri & Sat nights), Sonic Boom Records (Sat. afternoon – all ages) and The Garrison (Sun night).

As well as including a glance back at the past 20 years, Wavelength’s winter festival programming is future-forward, a “live curated mixtape” line-up of the newest, freshest and most exciting sounds in the Canadian independent music scene. Guest Co-Curator, Ian Steaman (Different Kitchen, CBC), brings a fresh new voice to the programming mix with the inclusion of more acts from the worlds of hip-hop, R&B, electronica and art-pop, as Wavelength continues to expand the boundaries of “indie” music.
