Festival Music House TIFF

30 highlights from TIFF's VIP music party

On September 8th and 9th TIFF hosted the Festival Music House at Toronto's newest venue, Adelaide Hall. This two-night, VIP, invite-only party boasts some of the most popular Canadian musicians to be found right now, and with a spotlight on amazing Toronto bands, no less. The first night of Festival Music Hall featured Michael Rault, The Darcys, Mother Mother, Diamond Rings, and Nightbox, and by the time five hours had elapsed, the crowd of hip, film- and music-loving attendees were dancing like teenagers at the end of prom. But if the first night was a show, the second was a production. It kicked off with the sultry tones of Alex Cuba, and featured Maylee Todd, July Talk, Dragonette, and Rich Aucoin, bringing down the house at the end of the night with confetti and a (very) sweaty dance party under Rich's oh so playful parachute.

Check out the bands and the energetic crowd in our slideshow.
