Good 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.
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:
Enjoy good music at a good price this weekend! And, as always, check our calendar for info on all local events.
