The festival is back to taking place in bars and venues all over the city, with a notable return to Yonge-Dundas Square after a disastrous two-year trial in the Port Lands.

The last three days of the festival includes a free concert in the square with performances from U.S. Girls, Torres, Yungblud and Sean Leon, to name a few.

New this year is the Club Land series that will see Canadian musicians like Ace Dillinger, Saya, Phèdre curating parties and introducing new music inside clubs around the city.

Meanwhile, Game Land is back for a second year and includes eSport competitions among elite gamers from across the country.
