CONTEST: Out of the Box Festival

out of the box

Just when we’re starting to go into music festival withdrawal, here comes a great one to give us a nice long weekend.

Next weekend is the Out of the Box Festival (July 29-31) featuring some of my favourite local/Ontario bands such as The Ruby Spirit, Heartbeat Hotel, Foxes in Fiction, Olenka and the Autumn Lovers, Lake Forest and Topanga. Each night has two shows – one at the Great Hall and one at the Underground Cinema. There are also day shows as well as art installations.
