Wavelength Music has unveiled details of its upcoming Summer Thing event — billed as "more than a show, but not really a festival" — which is due to take place at Toronto's west-end Lithuanian House from August 26 to 27.

The two-day, all-ages event will see performances by Cadence Weapon and Backxwash — who curated their respective floor's lineups — alongside Yoo Doo Right, Absolutely Free, Ouri, James Baley, Magi Merlin, Prince Innocence, Seulement, Dreamcrusher, Morgan-Paige and more across the venue's two floors, as well as curated installations, projections and pop-up performances. 

Staggered set times will ensure all artists get their chance in the spotlight, while each day's lineups have been curated to specific "vibes." Both nights will end with an after-party DJ set. 

Weekend passes cost $25, while single-day tickets will run for $15. Get both here. See the schedule below.
