Performers include Jay Arner, Tough Age, B-Lines, Cool, Too High Crew, Crystal Swells, Fake Tears, War Baby, Koban, Village, Vincent Parker, Defektors, Woolworm, Inherent Vies, Bad Channels, Soft Serve, the Greater Wall, Cult Babies, NEEDS, Cave Girl, Love Cuts, Skinny Kids, Oles, Candela Farm, Mu, Lié, Joel RL Phelps and many more.
On Facebook, Music Waste has posted a photo series involving many of this year's bands. In keeping with the festival's 20th anniversary, the photos have a birthday party theme.
Passes are available now in local record stores Red Cat, Zulu, Neptoon and Audiopile. As always, they cost a very reasonable $15.
In addition to the main performers, there will also be independently run Go Your Own Waste shows affiliated with the festival. A tweet from Music Waste confirms that these will include a pizza party and a show at the beloved Mount Pleasant institution Kingsgate Mall.
