Hillside Festival takes place every summer in Guelph, ON, but the organizers also host an annual winter spinoff called Hillside Inside. That will return in 2014 from February 7 to 9 and bring with it a pile of great Canadian acts.
There will be five ticketed shows, most of them at St. George’s Anglican Church in downtown Guelph. Performers include Timber Timbre, A Tribe Called Red, Whitehorse, July Talk, the Darcys, the Strumbellas, Lido Pimienta, Tanya Tagaq and more.
There will also be a kickoff event on the Friday (February 7) at the River Run Centre. This so-called “Fab 5” cabaret will offer a sampling of five different local festivals: Hillside, the Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival, the Eden Mills Writers’ Festival, the Guelph Jazz Festival and the Festival of Moving Media. There will be performers from across a range of mediums, with Tony Dekker (of Great Lake Swimmers) appearing as Hillside’s contribution to the bill
Individual show tickets will be available, and full festival passes cost $75 (plus tax and service charges). Tickets go on sale on December 7 and will be available at TicketBreak.com or in-person at the Bookshelf in Guelph.
There will also be some free events including a dance workshop.
SUNSH☀WERS is the first of a dance party series ft. the jamz of our local beat makers.
