We had a fabulous time last night, and we’re back for more! Here’s how to squeeze every last musical drop out of Springtide on Saturday!
If today’s your first day, pick up your wristband don’t forget you’ll need your wristband to get into all the gated venues! Bring your digital or printed ticket to the Hub at H. Bee Architecture, 88 Brock Street West, to get your wristband, a printed schedule, or one of our awesome 2019 festival tees.
Give yourself a Springtide Stretch
Start your day off in warrior pose with an 11 am Yoga Tune-Up at Blue Heron Books before your epic musical journey begins! (As with all venues, entry is first come, first served.)
More Acoustic Pop-Ups
From 11 am to 4:30 pm, downtown Uxbridge will once again play host to FREE Acoustic Pop-Ups in some pretty fantastic spaces. We’ve got Geoff Holt and Lindy Vopnfjörð at Nexus Coffee, Dawna Marie at Bluebell Paper & Press, Julien Kelland at Rutledge Jewellers and much, much more! Check our full schedule for artists and times.
The main event
The Second Wedge Brewing Co.’s outdoor stage kicks off at noon, featuring the likes of Robyn Ottolini’s spirited country, Crow’s dueling ukuleles, and Future History’s experimental alt-rock. This is going to be a popular stage, so settle in early to get good spot! And yes, there will be craft beer on tap, plus Uxbridge Smokehouse will be serving up meat and vegan sammies.
At 4 pm check out the Young Artists’ stage at Corner House Pub & Grill, with folks like grunge rockers Reckless Youth and alterna-rockers Uxbridge (The Band), or head over to the Workshop Stage at Tin Mill Restaurant to see Uxbridge fixture Dan Zenga, indie folk lovely Lindy Vopnfjörð and more mess around with sound together.
Back at The Second Wedge we’ve got Luna Li’s distorted garage rock at 5 pm, Birds of Bellwoods’ anthemic indie folk at 6 pm, Zeus’ introspective pop at 7 pm, and Springtide headliners Born Ruffians bring the festival to a crescendo starting at 8 pm.
As the outdoor stage at The Second Wedge winds down, the late-night venues are just getting started! Remember to stay hydrated as you wander between venues to catch artists like Peter Bradley strumming away at Hobby Horse Arms, The Django Junkies swinging and swaying at Tin Mill Restaurant and My Father’s Son weaving songs at Urban Pantry. If you’re looking for something high energy, catch rocking artists like Jack Walker at Col. McGrady’s and Goodnight, Sunrise and Chalk Lake at Corner House Pub & Grill.
