The Hub will host daily free concerts, with performers throughout the 10-day festival including K-os, Patrick Watson, Amadou & Mariam, Danny Michel, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Laurie Anderson, Rosanne Cash, and Kid Koala's Space Cadet headphone show.
As previously confirmed, Luminato will also stage a two-night tribute to Canadian songwriting great Joni Mitchell featuring Rufus Wainwright, Frames/Swell Season frontman Glen Hansard, jazz veteran Bill Frisell, and more. This will take place on June 18 and 19 at Massey Hall and is in celebration of Joni's impending 70th birthday.
