Wolfe Island Music Festival Announces 2019 "Winter Ball"
Wolfe Island Music Festival is returning this year for what organizers are calling its "Winter Ball."

The Toronto event will take place at the city's Longboat Hall (underneath the Great Hall) on March 28. It will be hosted by the Elwins and promises to feature "a surprise all-star lineup of past and future Wolfe Island Music Festival performers."

So, yes, so far the lineup is being kept a secret.

In a joint statement, the Elwins said, "So stoked to be hosting the Wolfe Island Winter Ball this year. Wolfe Island is so amazing and have always been so kind to us. We can't wait to give people a little taste of festival season and also throw in some spoofs and goofs. We have never hosted anything before so you know it's going be a bop."

Tickets for the event will go on sale Friday (March 8) over here.

At this point, the festival main summer event has yet to be announced. But past performers at the event — held at the fest's titular home among Ontario's Thousand Islands — have included the likes of Wolf Parade, Sam Roberts Band, Elliott Brood, Shad, Joel Plaskett, Stars, Weakerthans, Partner, Holy Fuck, Rheostatics, Alvvays and many more.
