Plus: upcoming Toronto concerts from Carly Rae Jepsen, Lucy Dacus and Devendra Banhart, Hollerado adds another farewell show, and more acts announced for NXNE
Wavelength has a new home for its summer festival. After bouncing around for a couple of years after getting displaced from Toronto Islands, Wavelength Summer Music & Arts Festival (formerly Camp Wavelength) will be at Stackt this August, with stages indoors at Belgian Moon Brewery and outdoors throughout the shipping container market.
The initial lineup for the two-day festival keeps the focus on Canadian indie artists, with some international acts also sprinkled in. Montreal indie pop duo Milk & Bone, Toronto-based rapper Cadence Weapon, Hull’s unclassifiable weirdos Fet.Nat, New York artist Yonatan Gat, plus Art D’Ecco, Tallies, Hua Li, Anthems of the Void will all take part.
More artists will be announced, as will other arts and comedy programming.
