Fest News / Music & Camping!‏

Aug 26, 2015

Only a month out from the 14th Annual Small World Festival and we’re full of anticipation for a great run. We’re always pleased to host artists for their local debut, but this time out – nothing short of seven acts will be playing Toronto for the first time! We’re really proud to be bringing new sounds to the ears of the city!Tickets are now on sale for the festival’s opening event. Not only the launch of our run, it’s also the opening of the 8th Annual Toronto Palestine Film Festival. We have brought one of the most exciting acts from the Middle East – 47Soul have been creating a buzz across contingents with their electro-Arabic vibe. Should be a great party!Our collaboration with Fort York for a weekend of free music is looking better and better. On Saturday the 26th, one of our faves, returning to town after extended absence – eccodek will showcase their latest take on global dub. Should provide some fine vibes for lawn dancing. That same day, Jay Danley‘s Ethio Jazz Project will feature special guest Hilario Duran. This is really special – one of Canada’s premier Latin jazz pianists throws himself into Ethiopian music? Fantastic!

Tickets for Ester Rada, Vieux Farka Toure, Maarja Nuut and the res of the festival lineup are on sale now!

Meanwhile, the big news this final weekend of August (yikes!) is Camp Wavelength. Our friends at the Wavelength Music have assembled a tremendous three-day festival on Toronto Island, featuring some of the best forward-thinking rock, electronica and more. Small World is delighted to be part of the event, presenting Montreal’s Pierre Kwenders on Sunday evening. And yes, you can sleep over – so, get your sleeping bag out and see you on the ferry!
