News:: Sappy Fest '08


This might look like one of those generic throw up posts you see everyone doing for Festival season, but to me this is a bit different. Sappy Records, Ok.Quoi?! Contemporary Arts Festival, Struts Gallery & Faucet Media Arts Centre are getting together for the third annual Sappy Fest.

This is a DIY fest that really showcases the talent of the Canadian indie scene. The lineup - which was just announced - is incredible. They pretty well got every act I hoped they would, ranging from bigger names like The Acorn, Chad van Gaalen, Julie Doiron, Miracle Fortress and Jim Bryson to smaller, up & comers like Luyas, Sandro Perri, Ghost Bees and The Bruce Peninsula.



Now I can't tell the people how to make the schedule, but to be able to sit in the sun and catch Sandro Perri and Miracle Fortress before heading over to see Ghost Bees as the darkness starts to creep in would be pretty well perfect.


Either way, it's going to be a great three days. Here's a quick run down of the complete lineup for you to ogle:
