Thursday August 13th 2015

TANYA TAGAQ + DOOMSQUAD + THE WEAKNESS
THE GRAND THEATRE / 8 PM

To kick things off, on Thursday August 13th at the Grand Theatre, Sudbury raised and Toronto based Faye Blais will perform for the very first time with The Weakness, her brand new electro-pop project that she crafted in LA. Toronto’s visual arts collective Doomsquad will follow suite with their cosmological melodies and alien-like performance. Finally, Tanya Tagaq, the Polaris Prize winning Inuk punk from Cambridge Bay, Nunavut will take us on a powerful journey with her unique vocal expression rooted in Inuit throat singing but with splashes of electronica, industrial and metal influences. Tagaq’s music isn’t like anything you’ve heard before.

SUBMERGED OBJECTS + DORIES + SCATTERED CLOUDS
THE TOWNEHOUSE TAVERN / 11:30 PM

To cap off the Thursday night, Sudbury based noise-trance collective Submerged Objects will take the stage of the Townehouse Tavern. Montreal’s spidery jangle-pop group Dories will transcend genres and send festival goers into the stratosphere. Finally, Hull’s Scattered Clouds’ dark, experiential and post apocalyptic power-pop will clear the skies and set the stage for what’s to come over the next couple of days.


Friday August 14th 2015

SUUNS + MOZART'S SISTER + JESSE MAC CORMACK
THE GRAND THEATRE / 8 PM

We then make our way back to the Grand Theatre for an evening of discovery and bliss kicked off by Jesse Mac Cormack who’s music is minimalist, painfully healing, and at times tinged with electronic trips. Inspired by Discovery-era Daft Punk, Post-era Bjork, and Betty Davis, Mozart’s Sister will then electrify the century old theatre with her glittering, celebratory and claustrophobic pop. Now things are going to get loud with SUUNS. Their nostalgic, fuzz-infused beats bare a soothing, contagious harmony that will leave no foot untapping.

LES MARINELLIS + STRANGE ATTRACTOR + THE APE-ETTES
THE TOWNEHOUSE TAVERN / 11:30 PM

Sudbury’s all-girl rock-garage-psych-pop trio The Ape-ettes will kick the Friday late night-off at the Townehouse Tavern followed by the Nickel City’s own Strange Attractor, the psych-punk weirdos who tour Europe more than they do Canada. Finally, let’s kick it up a notch with Montreal’s Les Marinellis who just got back SXSW and from touring Europe. Catch these five garage-psych Montreal rockers live before gravity brings their balls closer to the ground. Rock & roll won’t be as fun when they all stop wearing waist size 32.


Saturday August 15th 2015

THE REALLY BIG CRAZY FAMILY DAY
SHKAGAMIK-KWE PLAYGROUND ON DURHAM / 11 AM - 4 PM

Durham Street will be transformed into an art park that we are calling the Shkagamik-Kwe Playground. Families are encouraged to take part in walking tours of the new Up Fest murals, interactive art installations, mini-murals for the little ones (wear dirty clothes!), cardboard box castle building station, colourful costume parade, face painting, stilt walking, live music by The Mondo Idols & Howie Moonlight and so many more surprises!

We are able to make this a free event for children 12 and under thanks to the support of the Sudbury Community Foundation. For those 13 and up, admission to the Playground is only $10.

A TRIBE CALLED RED + RICH AUCOIN + THE ALMIGHTY RHOMBUS
SHKAGAMIK-KWE PLAYGROUND ON DURHAM / 8 PM

Sudbury’s The Almighty Rhombus will kick off the night on the mainstage with their catchy indie-pop melodies, followed by the motivational crowd pleaser Rich Aucoin and his carnival of fun with surfboards, confetti guns and all. Finally, as the sun starts to set, Ottawa’s A Tribe Called Red will rattle downtown Sudbury with their truly unique sound mixing traditional pow wow chants and drumming with cutting-edge electronic music. Made up of DJ NDN (Ojibway, Nipissing First Nation), Bear Witness (Cayuga, Six Nations) and 2oolman (Mohawk, of the Six Nations of the Grand River), A Tribe Called Red has become the face of an urban Native youth renaissance, championing their heritage and speaking out on aboriginal issues, while being on top of popular music, fashion and art. This will be their first time performing in Sudbury.

BEAT MARKET + DOLDRUMS + BBBRTHR
THE TOWNEHOUSE TAVERN / 11:30 PM

The night is still young and Sudbury’s BBBrthr (pronounced Baby Brother) will heat things up at the Townehouse Tavern with his one man traveling freak show creating dance music for people who hate dance music. Toronto/Montreal’s recently signed to SubPop Records Doldrums will blast his wrecking-ball beats and basslines that could moonlight as Harley-Davidson engines. Finally, Beat Market, the retro-futuristic laser-shooting Daft Punk-channeling duo from Montreal, will mix together a variety of genres ranging from house to dance music and electronica. The Townehouse won’t know what hit it.

PYPY + FET.NAT + PETRA GLYNT
LITTLE MONTREAL / 11:30 PM

To go out with a bang, one last series of concerts will be presented at Little Montreal. After completing her mural, Alexandra McKenzie will swap her paintbrush for a microphone and morph into Petra Glynt and shake festival die-hards with her signature deep, pulsing and almost military beats. Hailing from the hotbed of Hull and Ottawa’s experimental scene, Fet.Nat are a force to be reckoned with. Featuring members of Timber Timbre, Scattered Clouds and Last Ex, Fet.Nat is a gang of prodigious musicians that kidnapped a pissed off french slam poet. Finally, Montreal’s PyPy, the lunatic minds behind Montreal’s CPC Gangbangs, Red Mass and Duchess Says, will cap off the festivities with their thrashing psych-punk sinister wah-wah freakouts littered with fuzz, distortion, disco-breaks and the necromantic scream of co-lead singer Annie-Claude Deschênes.
