Strangewaves Music & Art Festival is an annual music & art camping festival that receives no corporate or government funding. Strangewaves deeply appreciates the loyal support it receives for its shows throughout the year, as well as the love and support it has received at past festivals from such generous souls. This year is the biggest undertaking yet and could really benefit from a healthy injection of funds at this dollar getter to make this year’s festival the best it can possibly be for y’all!


Guttersnipe (Leeds, UK)

“Just look at them! They’re so awkward and weird looking.” This was how one short-sighted detractor described Leeds-based free noise experimentalists Guttersnipe. And yet mistaking the duo’s ferociously tense live performances for sheer awkwardness is something that they find some perverse solace in. “This entertained us a fair bit,” drummer Bdallophytum Oxylepis explains, “That our general appearance and on-stage demeanour would induce pity and discomfort is an asset for us in the face of a culture that favours the strong and well presented.”


Drainolith (Montreal)
Alexander Moskos’ tripped up, smoldered blues from another dimension. HIs voice crawls across your central nervous system, creating equal parts unease and infinite comfort. A singular force in the underground music scene!

Tartpussy (Hamilton)
Free flowin’ improvising collective of women, brought to you by sonic anarchists Sourpussy.

Hoards (Hamilton)
Grinding psychedelic solo project from the one and only Matt Hill (Lizzy Boredom, Love Serum & the Drips etc etc)
