GMAF2017 Saturday Night at 10 Wyndham!
Finally, more #GMAF2017 announcements!
We’ve had some time to let all the announcements settle in, we left ya hanging a few days, and now it’s time for our final nighttime performance announcements of the 7th annual GAIN Music & Arts Festival!
Our Saturday, March 4, 2017 10 Wyndham St (Van Gogh’s Ear, DSTRCT & DSTRCT Lounge) lineup came together through a combination of luck & timing. Both factors helped make this years 5 day festival lineup a special one that is probably one of our best all-around festival lineups and one that will be hard to top, if I do say so myself!
Now don’t get me wrong, we’ve put some epic festivals together and I’ve loved every festival lineup I’ve been a part of putting together over the past 7 years as well. I don’t have any regrets about any band or musician choices we’ve made over the past years either.
However, in looking back at past years festivals I’ve been given an opportunity to really examine each festival and analyze both the negative and positive aspects from a more distant view than when in the midst of putting that particular year together.
Some years we had bands drop last minute, others we spent too much time on one aspect of the festival while loosing sight on other aspects. On a few occasions we ended up having bands play another show the week before, or after the festival, ultimately affecting their draw and the fest as a whole.
This year we managed to line all our ducks up early and had some artists jump on that we’d been working with over the past few years who really deserved to be on the festival stage. Some musicians on this years fest I’d wanted to work with for years and just happened to be lining up tours for the same time frame as the fest, which made the timing perfect. Other choices on this year were simply no brainers!
It’s with that that we’re proud to announce our Saturday, March 4, 2017 10 Wyndham St lineup!
We’ve got a whole lot more to announce including our Festival Music Weekends in Downtown Guelph Showcases as well as more tickets, including physicals so stay posted!
A few other surprises may be popping up along the way too!
