Toronto's Venus Fest Returns for Second Edition

Toronto's Venus Fest Returns for Second Edition
After celebrating woman and non-binary artists with their inaugural edition last year, organizers behind Toronto's Venus Fest have locked in the dates for the event's second edition.

Expanding from its initial single-day incarnation, the 2018 edition of Venus Fest will take place from September 20 to 22. The festival's first evening will be presented at the Mod Club before moving out the Opera House in the city's East End for the final two evenings.

"The inspiration behind Venus Fest is not a new one in the world. But it does feel like the world may be ready for it now," founder Aerin Fogel said in a statement. "We're in the midst of some very powerful changes and I hope that Venus Fest can continue to grow and learn through those changes, and to hold out a space for people to come together and celebrate these beautiful artists, who are the healers of our world."

Early bird wristbands for the festival are available here. Last year's inaugural Venus Fest featured Weaves, DIANA, Lido Pimienta, Phèdre, Ice Cream, Witch Prophet and more.
