GAIN Music & Arts Festival
The Guelph & Area Independent & New Music & Arts Festival, otherwise known as the GAIN Music & Arts Fest, or simply ‘GAIN Fest’ (#GMAF on social), began in 2011 as a means to put local & area bands on a festival stage with high production & an affordable ticket price for the average music goer.
From it’s humble beginnings as a one day event on a Thursday night in March where 13 Guelph bands & musicians took over all 3 floors of 10 Wyndham St, what was then called the Van Gogh’s Ear building; to what the festival has become today, a multi-venue, multi-discipline arts & music festival, we’ve aimed to keep the focus on supporting & expanding the local scene.
