Published May 07, 2013Music Waste organizers mixed things up this past January when they staged Winter Waste, but the long-running Vancouver D.I.Y. fest has announced its traditional pre-summer activities get back underway in June.
Today (May 7) organizers unveiled the show schedule for the 2013 edition, which runs June 6 to 9, and it once again collects a vast and varied selection of acts from Vancouver's independent scene. The first night of music, for instance, features sets from dub-experimenters Nam Shub, high-octane post-punks Defektors, Siskiyou offshoot Failing and more spread out across a handful of venues.
Elsewhere during the fest, you'll find familiar names like Mint solo artist Jay Arner, pop trio the Courtneys, noise act Aerosol Constellations and rapper Young Braised. Also appearing will be Woolworm, Hole in My Head, BESTiE, Soft Serve, Johnny de Courcy, Waters, B-Lines, Womankind, War Baby, Capitol 6, Twin River, Love Cuts, Koban, Half Chinese, Watermelon, Shearing Pinx, Violet Age, Dead Again, Christopher Smith, Gal Gracen, Mormon Crosses, Magneticring, White Poppy, PUPS and more.
You can find out all the date and venue details, as well as the full lineup, over here.
As in years past, the fest has also announced it will host Art Waste and Comedy Waste portions of the fest, and encourages other promoters and bands to book Go Your Own Waste shows, so long as they stick to a $5 cover charge and accept Music Waste passes.
All-access passes have yet to go on sale, but they will be available around town soon for $15.
