Long Winter

This is going to be a cool one. Harbourfront Centre and Long Winter have joined forces to present: The Arctic Night!

Toronto's most eclectic alt-culture series comes to the waterfront with a high-energy fusion of the best in Toronto-area underground music and art. A "singular, unmissable" (Globe and Mail) choose-your-own-adventure mega-concert experience will take over the entire building at Harbourfront Centre for one night only and will feature a line-up of Toronto talent and artists from the Arctic Circle.
