After another edition of their summer festival on Toronto Island, organizers behind Toronto's Wavelength Music Festival are set to take things inside for their annual flagship event. The 2017 edition will run from February 17 to 19, and the lineup has now been announced.

Topping the bill for Wavelength Music Festival 17 are TOPS, Diana, Julie Doiron & the Wrong Guys, Phèdre, Fake Palms, Han Han, Vallens, Peeling, Chandra, Fet.Nat, Strands, Helena Deland, Emay and Fin.

The festival's opening evening on February 17 will see TOPS, Diana, Vallens, Chandra and DJ JD perform at the Garrison. This particular show is presented by Red Bull Sound Select, with admission being only $3 with an RSVP over here (or $10 without).

On Saturday, February 18, Exclaim! and Girls Rock Camp Toronto will co-present an all-ages matinee at the Monarch Tavern featuring Peeling, WLMRT, Strands, Denim Roses and DJ Mar Sellars. Saturday evening will see Julie Doiron & the Wrong Guys, Fake Palms, Fet.Nat, Whoop-Szo, Helena Deland & DJ Alpha Strategy at the Garrison.

The festival will conclude on Sunday with the festival's first-ever "Drone Brunch" at the Gladstone Hotel featuring North Atlantic Drift and Kat Estacio. The day will also feature a collaborative Toronto Music "Wikipedia Jam" led by blogger Joe Strutt of Mechanical Forest Sound, in which participants fill in the gaps of online documentation of Toronto music history.

Sunday evening's performance at the Garrison will see Phèdre, Han Han, Emay, Fin, Hush Pup and DJ Bad Plastics take the stage.

A festival pass for full access to the three days of music will run you $26, while individual tickets range from $7 to $10 in advance. You can find full ticketing information, as well as detailed day-by-day schedules at the festival's official website.
