26 May Obey Convention IX – Free Ideas in Music and Art
OBEY Convention IX is here. If you’ve yet to familiarize yourself with our program, visit our site to see what’s in store. Headliners such as experimental rapper and performance artist Mykki Blanco, NYC punk-honkers Zs, Berlin’s wall-of-doom duo Nadja, Montreal’s cold techno master Marie Davidson, and so many more perform at some of Halifax’s most iconic venues over the next four days.
Festival weekend is always a whirlwind of inspiration, delirium, contemplation, and exhaustion. We wouldn’t want it any other way. Please be kind and patient with each other, our volunteers, the venues, and the city.
And check below for some housekeeping.
