The Lead Up to the 8th Annual GAIN Music & Arts Festival!
As 2017 draws to a close it also means that our 8th annual festival is just around the corner!
Most of our lineup has been posted, but we’ve still got a few surprises up our sleeves to announce in early 2018! We wanted to get through the holidays before inundating you with more festival blasts!
Putting this whole thing together takes a lot of work, energy & time. From booking the bands to coordinating promo, hiring a crew, finding volunteers to getting people hyped & excited about the Fest. In the last few months leading up to the fest it’s also inevitable that something will come up. Be it a competing show, bands dropping or unable to make it last minute, or some other unknown or unseen factor.
This year has been no different, but regardless of these factors we’ve pushed through, found solutions, altered the lineup and worked with local organizations, venues & spaces to ensure that each show & event gets the audience it deserves.
Our goal is to alleviate as many stresses as we can and to make sure that the show goes on! To do that we work within our community to help create a positive experience for the show goer, performing artist / musician, and local business owners alike.
There are over 30 local & area bands on our upcoming festival, all ready to showcase their art on various downtown Guelph stages. We’re very excited for our 8th annual festival and for the last few announcements that are coming in January 2018!
Be sure to check out our lineup and keep posted to our social media sites & here for more updates!
See you in 2018!
