Performances by:

Eekwol
"Just an Indigenous experimental music maker, creating spaces, remembering places, word warrior revitalizing history beyond painted faces"

Man Meat
"Forged in the frigid winter landscape of Saskatoon, Man Meat have established themselves as a badass, answers-to-no-one noise punk outfit. Anxious riffs and unholy melodies provide the perfect crunchy soundtrack to your 2016 Existential Crisis. These are the women your parents warned you about."

Quinzee Town
"Envisioning a post-apocalyptic future in which human survivors reside in quinzees and sing songs we remember, Quinzee Town delights to cover Ween and pop classics from the 50's and 60's such as Roy Orbison, Skeeter Davis, and Elvis Presley. Tender shredding and nostalgic harmonies shed new light on old favourites. Pleasing to fans of both oldies and Ween!"

Yep Yep Yeps
"We've got a fever to tell."

The Department Heads
"Formed after the dissolution of previous band, Rhinkberger, this energetic hard riff-rock quartet delivers serious musicianship with powerful female vocals. This foursome delivers a strong live performance and has something to offer fellow musicians and show-goers alike. Their sound has evolved to incorporate a variety of musical styles and influences including punk rock, heavy metal, desert rock and the likes of Danko Jones and Queens of the Stone Age."
