Published Jul 05, 2012For any Toronto music fans who feel like going camping this summer but don't want to travel too far from home, the ALL CAPS! Island Festival may be a dream come true. The event will be returning for its fourth instalment on August 11 and 12, offering camping in addition to a solid lineup of performers.
Among the acts playing at Artscape Gibraltar Point on Toronto Island are A Place to Bury Strangers, Yamantaka//Sonic Titan, Maylee Todd, Lioness, Choir! Choir! Choir!, Tyvek, Canadian Winter, Young Mother and more. The event will also include visual art and food vendors, in addition to all of the fun that camping usually offers, like swimming and bonfires. Check out a two-minute trailer for the event below.
The organizers are currently fundraising for the event over at Indiegogo. In exchange for a donation, you can receive prizes like a frisbee, a festival pass or even a custom-designed poster. The campaign aims to raise $3,500 by August 11.
A camping pass costs $65 and allows you to stay over Saturday night. Full festival passes cost $30 but don't include camping. Single day tickets cost $17. Bear in mind that ferry admission is not included.
Tickets will be available from the Arts & Crafts store and in-person at Rotate This or Soundscapes.
