Two Music Festivals Near Ossington This Weekend

greatheartfestGood news for local music fans: this weekend we’ve got not one but two music festivals nearby. No heavy fees and no trekking to The Portlands to hear quality music.

From Friday June 17- Sunday June 19, the Live in Bellwoods Great Heart Festival brings free music to Trinity Bellwoods Park. On Friday and Saturday, The Garrison hosts No Fest for a small entry fee.

The Great Heart Festival has been a constant in Trinity Bellwoods the last several years. While there were issues with permits in the past, our Mayor is helping make this year’s fest a go!  No charge. The mostly acoustic music Friday from 4p-7p, Saturday and Sunday from 2-6p. Acts include Toronto rockers Sam Cash & The Romantic Dogs on Saturday at 4pm, and Jane’s Party on Sunday at 4:30PM. Look for the group near Dundas north of the Dog Bowl. Bring a blanket, picnic, and enjoy.

The inaugural No Fest brings two nights and a day of local music to The Garrison. This will feel more like what we used to have with NXNE.  Toronto indie bands are filling the back room both Friday and Saturday nights. Plus, Beau’s is sponsoring a free day party in the front room on Saturday afternoon. (remember those?) The No Fest music festival passes are on sale for $20 and each night alone for $12. Below are the schedules for Friday and Saturday nights:
