Grickle Grass Festival is bringing London, Ontario a diverse lineup of music this summer – with a twist. Twelve bands from all around Canada will be featured in this one of a kind show on May 27, 2017 all in one venue. Featuring Hooded Fang, Doomsquad, Un Blonde, and more, Grickle Grass is sure to provided attendees a unique experience.
A tree fort, space station, a construction site, a supermarket, the Arctic Tundra, a mysterious cave, and a stage beneath the belly of a hanging whale skeleton sound like they may be from your wildest dreams, but you’ll find them all at Grickle Grass!
The historical walls of the London Regional Children’s Museum will be home to the unique Grickle Grass Festival this May. “Once again, Grickle Grass brings together voices from across Canada’s current underground. Occurring in a space that lends itself to an awe-inspiringly positive experience, the event is at once world-class and wholly atypical for this community,” says Artistic Director, Adam Sturgeon.
The Grickle Grass festival is also family friendly! During the festival’s daytime programming, kids and parents alike can enjoy a number of creative activities from 10AM to 4PM – and day or night, it’s all for a good cause.
To date, Grickle Grass has raised and donated nearly $35,000 to Growing Chefs and the London Regional Children’s Museum. Through these partnerships, Grickle Grass has also sponsored and reforested its very own park, hosted The Children’s Water Festival, and maintained the Grickle Grass Garden that gets planted at the festival each year.
I’ve been involved in music my whole life and have developed a passion for helping out or working in the industry any way I can. I’m interested in helping talented artists gain the recognition they deserve in this crazy business. I am currently studying Communication Studies at York University in Toronto, and working at a local theatre doing marketing and communications, as well as helping out a local festival called Rock the Coliseum. Indie, alt-rock/pop, and metal are my favourites but I’m open to all music genres! If I’m not at a show, I’m doing yoga, grabbing coffee, or looking for some craft beer.
