Published Apr 30, 2013Last year, Toronto's electronic-oriented Sound in Motion festival held its inaugural event. Evidently this is shaping up to be an annual gig, since organizers StudioFeed have confirmed the details of the second instalment, which will be taking place from July 11 to 13 at various venues around Toronto.
The performers include Kode9, Deepchord, Daniel Bell, Marcus Visionary, SlowPitch, Basic Soul Unit, Stefny Winter, Jason Hodges and Audio Werner. This is just the first wave of confirmed acts, however, since the lineup will be expanded on June 11.
The not-for-profit festival promises to offer a two-room main event (including bass and house/techno performers), plus free outdoor gigs, along with technology exhibits, workshops and panels, and a short film showcase.
"Our mandate is to strengthen the local music ecosystem," StudioFeed director John Alexiou said in a statement. "The energy present in our 'underground' local scene is massive but we have seen great people leave this city based on a lack of infrastructure and support. We want to help change that. Toronto is a world-class music city and should be able to support a healthy range of independent music."
