The Wavelength Summer Music Festival is an urban getaway like no other. It is an influential nonprofit independent music organization and concert series held in Toronto.
Wavelength Music presents two nights full of music, comedy, and art. It is easily accessible by transit, cycling or even on foot, and it offers up music, comedy, arts, activities and, of course, food and drinks. Wavelength 2019 will be a hidden oasis full of creativity and community.
Here are the top 5 experiences at the Wavelength Summer Music Festival.
The event will be hosted at stackt
The venue is different and makes the festival more intimate and immersive by providing an out of this world experience. The festival will provide an escape inside and outside of the walls of the shipping containers that make up stackt. The venue is Toronto’s newest space for creatives, where it is designed entirely out of shipping containers. At stackt, you’ll engage in new experiences, find new products and form new perceptions. Note that when you’re heading to the event, stackt is cashless, so make sure to bring your card!
You can listen to rad tunes inside of a brewery
For Wavelength, it has been a tradition to transform a local space into an urban oasis for music, art and community. They are taking over stackt for this year’s festival, and although it is held in an outdoor space, not to worry! The main stage will be held inside of a brewery! The stage will be weather-protected inside of the Belgian Moon Brewery, where they will be offering a variety of seasonal beers. Another great feature is that it will be air-conditioned, and who doesn’t want some fresh AC on a hot summer day?
Awesome Art & Activities
There will be tons of immersive art and activities to engage with at Wavelength this year. Not only will there be a lineup of awesome musical acts, but there will also be a variety of art and activities for you to play and engage with! Wavelength’s curated immersive public art installations and festival activities celebrate the local contemporary culture, art, and community connection that exists in Toronto. Some of the art and activities include an Illusion Ladder, A Paint by Number Rock N Roll Fantasy, General Chaos Visuals and more.
Hilarious stand up comedy sets
There will be several hilarious stand up comedy sets between musical acts. The comedy acts will occur between each band’s set, so you will be thoroughly entertained throughout each moment of the festival. While you wait for some killer music, you’ll get to listen to some high quality comedic acts. The line-up of comedians include Natalie Norman, Jialu Wang, Gregory Brown, Meg McKay and more!
An unbelievably curated lineup of bands
The curated lineup of acts at the festival’s main stage was custom made by Wavelength Artistic Director Jonathan Bunce, a.k.a. Jonny Dovercourt, and co-curator Ian Steaman. These guys know their stuff when it comes to music based in Toronto, as they are veterans in their respective fields in the music industry. The line-up of musicians include Milk & Bone, Afrotronix, Cadence Weapon, Yonatan Gat, and more! Check out the full lineup above. Plus, our very own Lana Gay will be hosting!
