Speaking of the event...
Here’s a quick rundown of what you can expect to see this year:
Thursday, June 29th – Talbot Street Takeover
It’s time for the youthful talent of London’s music scene to shine by kicking off the five-day event. The Takeover includes artists and bands within the 15 – 25 year old age range. What’s more? A selection committee consisting of London youth in the same age group will choose the performers. This is a going to be a blast for all the young rockers (but not limited to) out there, so come on down!
Friday, June 30th – Best Of Ontario
Let’s face it, Ontario’s music scene rocks! The Best Of Ontario, in conjunction with London’s Music Cities Exchange program, is actively working with other Ontario cities in an effort to grow their music community. Best Of Ontario gives artist and bands a glowing opportunity to reach and establish new audiences and markets outside of their hometowns. So, out-of-town artists, here’s an awesome chance to showcase the goods and get London hopping!
Also, the event will close with a legendary not-to-be-missed performance (but, it’s a secret)!
Saturday, July 1st – Canada Day
Canada will be turning a big 150 years this coming July (and my, hasn’t she aged gracefully?). To celebrate, the event will gather a wide spectrum of cultural acts to create an experience that embodies the spirit of our nation.
Sunday, July 2nd – Centennial '67 Day
Let’s do the Time Warp again! We’re going back in time to look at the Expo ’67 and Centennial celebrations that took place in Montreal, in the year… you guessed it… 1967! The event will host a mix of Francophone artists and diverse musical genres providing its viewers with a glimpse of Canada’s musical culture. We’ve got some excellent headline performances to close off the event.
Monday, July 3rd – The Best Of London
Having covered Canada and Ontario’s musical diversity, this event is focused on you, London! This will be the day to celebrate and showcase the best that London has to offer!
It’s sure to be an awesome festival you won’t want to miss, and we wouldn’t want you to miss it either! So, if you’re looking for more information and details, please check out the program guide in the links below and see ya there!
