Organizer Tyson Travnik comments “We’re very proud to be able to focus this year’s festival on showcasing bands that we feel have supported past Canadian festivals plus helped their local scenes flourish. Focusing on keeping this year’s experience intimate, yet retaining top-shelf quality is something that I think will set 2017 apart from events we’ve done in the past. ”
Under age? Don’t Worry ! This year’s festival will include an All Ages event on the Sunday date. As well as a return of an all-ages conference and clinc day. This years will include publicity/promotion, vocal and guitar clinics as well as a recording and live sound clinic.

I’m Phil and 27 years old. I’ve been involved with music as long as I can remember. I’ve worked as a backstage hand, stage crew, street-teamer with Union Events and various labels, been in and out of bands and started my own magazine; Attainable Magazine. In which I focus on band interviews and had the opportunity to sit down with names such as William Control, Real Mackenzies and I Prevail. As well photograph others such as August Burns Red, Silverstein, and Protest the Hero. Though I tend to gravitate towards the heavier styles; punk, metal, hardcore, and so forth. I do end up at any other show I can get too. I originally had gone to university to pursue broadcasting with a minor in photo-journalism but after a year left to continue to purse music on my own terms. If I’m not at a show, I’m either at a record store adding to my ever growing collection. In my free time I also model and practice body-suspension. You can always feel free to contact me on my other social medias.
