OPEN TUNING: A Free Music Festival
IT’S FREE. IT’S UNIQUE. IT’S DIY!
Energized by the success of its inaugural year, Open Tuning: A Free Music Festival 2015 is back!
This year’s Open Tuning Festival happens on Saturday, June 20, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. in downtown Toronto’s Seaton Village, bordered by Dupont Ave., Bloor St., Bathurst St., and Christie St.
Open Tuning 2015 is an all-day free music festival that fills the porches, lanes, alleys, parks, cafes, and shops of Seaton Village with music from all genres, by performers of all ages and skill levels.
Last year’s community run festival featured over 50 bands at 17 venues, with performances that ranged from a back alley EDM DJ party to a solo sidewalk performance on the nyckelharpa (a Swedish medieval instrument) to a healthy dose of garage rock (in actual garages!)
And it all happened without a penny of corporate sponsorship.
“Last year was an awesome success, but I think it caught a lot of people by surprise,” says Open Tuning organizer Chris McNeil. “This year, we’re getting the whole community involved earlier so I think we’re going to be even bigger, louder, and weirder in 2015!” So far the festival is on track to top it’s success with over 70 performers lined
The eclectic line-up for Open Tuning 2015 features over 70 performers with first-timers and basement rockers playing alongside Juno Award winners and international recording artists, including members of Broken Social Scene and international soccer star Gwyllym-the-dog with his singing sidekick Jane Siberry.
