Venus Fest and Futuro Libre will present a free music fest within the theatre fest. Plus: just announced concerts from Tyler, The Creator, Bon Iver, Wilco, Sleater-Kinney and more
Toronto Fringe is once again hosting its Postscript Patio within the hockey rink of Scadding Court at Dundas and Bathurst. And there’s a music festival within that theatre festival, programmed by Venus Fest and Futuro Libre.
The free, open-to-the-public patio is the schmoozing hub of the Fringe, where you can grab a drink or a bite and talk about whose monologue killed and whose two-hander died.
While artists hand you fliers, you can catch music from a stacked set of local acts like Maylee Todd, LOLAA, SATE, New Chance, Moscow Apartment, Moneka Arabic Jazz, DJ Max Mohenu and more to be announced.
On July 6 you can also put on a pair of headphones and dance (quietly) to the Main Ingredient Silent Disco, from 11 pm-3 am.
