Press Release April 3, 2018

Springtide Music Festival COMPLETE lineup announced!

The “little festival that could” was just an exciting idea to a group of Uxbridge business owners and musicians only 10 weeks ago, when they attended – and were inspired by – Epidemic Music Group’s Wintersong Festival in neighbouring Stouffville.

Uxbridge, known for its rural landscape crisscrossed with trails, will now soon be on the musical map, as Springtide unveils its lineup of more than 65 artists playing in 15 different downtown venues. “Uxbridge was ready for this festival,” says festival co-chair Tania Joy Senior. “The town is full of talented musicians and music lovers, and our venues, sponsors and volunteers have all come together to demonstrate the strength of our community. We can’t wait to see the streets buzzing!”

The inaugural Springtide Music Festival promises a strong local component but also draws musicians from across the GTA and Golden Horseshoe, including headliner Great Lake Swimmers, who plays the outdoor stage on Saturday, April 21.

Among the unique attractions of Springtide Music Festival:

  • A curated Youth Stage featuring the GTA’s top singer/songwriters and bands aged 18 and under, including Moscow Apartment and Kingdom of Birds
  • A Workshop Stage, with all-star themed sessions including One Song – “conversations about the story behind the song”, and Ambient Hour – “an experimental hour of ambient inventiveness”
  • A free-to-attend open-mic style Community Stage where artists can sign up to play or jam
  • An outdoor stage on the grounds of Uxbridge’s local brewery
  • Unique small venues along a 750 metre stretch through the heart of Uxbridge’s charming downtown

Springtide Music Festival takes place Friday, April 20 and Saturday, April 21, 2018. The complete schedule including show times and locations will be published on or before April 10.
