Hillside music festival announces 2017 lineup
A few weeks earlier than usual, on the weekend of July 14-16, 2017, out on Guelph Lake, Hillside Festival will hold our 34th annual gathering on the island.
In keeping with the strong spirit Hillside has cultivated, they have programmed a line up of artists who are gifted and ambitious. The 2017 line up is packed with enablers and disrupters, enabling new ideas to come into consciousness and culture and disrupting the worn channels of thought and feeling upon which we rely. In one-way or another, so many of these artists challenge the status quo, whether through their musical or literary experimentation or their activism, be it political, environmental, race- or gender-based.
