The OBEY Convention is self-described as "Eastern Canada's only music and arts festival dedicated to the cultural outsider," and the music and arts festival will continue its mission this year with its sixth event. It runs from June 6 to June 9 in Halifax.

Among the acts on board for 2013 are Mac DeMarco, Pissed Jeans, Chris Corsano, Grouper, Each Other, Babysitter, Cousins, Ketamines, Tonstartssbandht, and Pete Swanson. Artists will perform at an array of alternative and artist-run spaces around Halifax.

According to a press release, "As usual, OBEY will bring in deluxe sound and light equipment to maximize fidelity and audience pleasure." Non-musical attractions include art installations, video screenings and much more.

A limited number of passes are available for $60. Individual show tickets will be available after the full schedule is confirmed on April 18. Go to OBEY's website for more information.
