Published Jan 20, 2012With Canadian Music Week coming to Toronto form March 21 to 25, the annual event is gearing up for its Slacker Canadian Music Fest, which will boast a huge number of artists from home and abroad. Following the original announcement, which included John K. Samson & the Provincial Band, Childish Gambino, and Two Hours Traffic, the festival has rolled out the names of yet more performers.
Perhaps the biggest new addition to the festival are the Inbreds, who have been largely dormant since the '90s, outside of a couple of one-off reunions shows, most recently in 2008. Treble Charger have also reunited for the festival, as previously reported.
Other newly added acts include Cloud Nothings, the Temper Trap, Dragonette, 3 Inches of Blood, Paper Lions, Badbadnotgood, Nneka, Andy C:Alive, Shotgun Jimmie, Sheezer (yes, that's an all-female Weezer cover band), MNDR, Will Currie and the Country French and many more.
More previously announced acts include Slash, Saul Williams, Fanfarlo, the Trews, Two Hours Traffic, Brasstronaut, Hot Panda, Louise Burns, Cadence Weapon, the Elwins and others.
Festival wristbands cost $75, while VIP wristbands are $150. Learn more and buy yours right here. Individual show tickets are also available.
