There’s a lot to do this weekend…A LOT. The infamous Toronto Summer Festival Schedule has been revving up for a few weeks now things are in full swing. With Luminato starting today and NXNE a few days ago, music and art lovers have a lot to choose from. And things aren’t going to get any easier…
This year Luminato brings Unsound from June 19 – 20 as a festival within a festival. From it’s beginnings as a small underground festival in cellar clubs in Krakow, Poland in 2006, Unsound has grown into one of the world’s foremost events in electronic and experimental music. While in the past locations have included London and New York, this is Unsound’s first time in Toronto. It is also the only North American stop for Unsound in 2015.
For the next two nights the decommissioned Hearn Generating Station will play host to an event you do not want to miss. There are two rooms that will be going for both nights featuring performances from Orphx, Emptyset, Helena Hauff, Ben Frost, Lustmord and many more. Those lucky enough to have a ticket will also witness Tim Hecker’s “Ephemera”, which features olfactory compositions by conceptual perfumer Geza Schoen, based on the musical resonances and reverberations of Hecker with an immersive lighting design by Berlin’s MFO.
Tickets are $20/night or $30 for both nights and can be purchased here. Check out the video below to get an idea of what’s in store.
