With renewed spirits and excitement in the air, we’re thrilled to unroll our full programme for OBEY Convention X, the 10th instalment of Atlantic Canada’s premier festival of free ideas in music and art. Happening May 25-28th at alternative and historic sites throughout our coastal city, this celebration of innovative voices boasts over twenty events across four days, many of which are free and all-ages.
In addition to headliners including Indonesian doom-folk duo Senyawa, Philadelphia’s outré hip-hop activist Moor Mother, industrial NYC thrash-metal combo Uniform, legendary new age beacon Laraaji, insurgent acid-house bunker-junkers Pelada, Bolivian-American club deconstructionist Elysia Crampton, Montreal’s new school sonic sculptress Kara-Lis Coverdale, and post-folk power combo Xylouris White, we’ve got these amazing talents:
FET.NAT | Xuan Ye | Jerry Granelli | BUDI | Jay Crocker | New Chance | chik white | Plasmalab | Instant Places | XO XV XT | MAJE | Echo Beach | Colin Fisher | Aquakultre | The Submissives | Geil | Open Borders | Fake Buildings | Rabies | East Of The Valley Blues | Twilight Express | gBloo-BIES | Staying Underground | Shyshaya | The Magic Project | NoiSeCAD | DJ Ron Wolf, CEO
Beyond these kaleidoscopic musical happenings, we’ll also be presenting the EverySeeker Symposium, a series of educational events at the intersections of sound in partnership with The Fountain School Of Performing Arts, featuring David Barclay, Anne Bourne, Chris Murdoch and Laraaji.
And while Art In Fest won’t be happening this year, we’re happy to announce that The Khyber Centre For The Arts will be hosting two excellent events in conjunction with Halifax’s The Magic Project (including the much beloved children’s program OBABY).
Full festival passes (that guarantee you access to all of our ticketed events) and individual tickets are on sale now.
See you this spring at the edges of everything!
