in/future coming fast!

Sep 01, 2016

Trying to wrap my head around the fact that it’s September! But in this endless summer, festival season just keeps on going and the closer we get to in/future, presented with our partners Art Spin at Ontario Place, the more amazing this eleven day run looks.

Over forty-five acts on the Small World Stage presented by Exodus Travels. When you see all of them lined up, it’s truly something! And that’s only one aspect of this unique event. Fourteen acres of Ontario Place animated with art installations and roaming musicians. The Cinesphere open to the public for the first time in five years with original IMAX films as well as live music performance to video. Food, drink and much more – it’s going to really special.  Check out our new video below for a taste of whats to come!

Here are a few as yet unannounced  musical gems.
Mariachi Flor de Toloache – A unique feminist take on traditional Mexican Mariachi
Gypsy Kumbia Orchestra – Montreal’s mashup of Balkan brass, Latin funk and spectacle
Sina Bathaie – Taking Persian influences to new musical landscapes
Kinnie Starr – ‘Raw feral talent’ and a solid groove
Amai Kuda Y Josephine – Singers and percussionists with a unique brand of AfroSoul
Autorickshaw Trio – Virtuosic Indian rhythm and voice meets jazz cool

In addition to artists already released, from Talking Heads alumnus Wally Badarou to Iranian trance and dance from Saeid Shanbehzadeh, from massive funk by Souljazz Orchestra to thundering bhangra drumming from Dhol Foundation. I can’t believe how low we’re selling festival passes for! Use the code INFUTUREMUSIC.
