Toronto's Wavelength Winter Festival is set to return for another year, and organizers have revealed the initial lineup for the 2019 event.

Taking place from February 15 to 17, the festival's nighttime lineup includes Mélissa Laveaux, Anemone, Elisapie, the Sorority's Lex Leosis, Twist, Beams, Myst Milano, Future Peers, Isla Den and Luna Li.

A slate of all-ages daytime programming has yet to be announced. All three evenings of nighttime programming will take place at the Garrison.

The 2019 edition of Wavelength Winter Festival follows a community consultation event the organization held last November. A press release notes that feedback received led organizers to enlist guest curator Emma Bortolon-Vetter (Bonnie Trash) and feature a smaller number of live acts per night to increase financial compensation.

The consultation event was organized in the wake of abuse allegations made against the festival's artistic director Jonathan Bunce (a.k.a. Jonny Dovercourt). A subsequent third-party investigation found "no evidence to support the allegations that Bunce fostered a hostile work environment."

Tickets for all three individual nighttime shows cost $15 in advance and $20 at the door, while an all-access festival pass can be had for $35.

Concertgoers can also purchase a Wavelength Passport, granting them access to Camp Wavelength 2019 and Wavelength's monthly show series throughout the year, in addition to the Winter Festival.

You can find full ticketing information, as well as detailed day-by-day schedules at the festival's official website. Learn more about the history of the Wavelength Winter Festival with Exclaim!'s festival profile.
