A beloved Ontario festival is moving things to the digital realm this summer after having to postpone their in-person festivities to next summer. Hillside Festival is going virtual with their Hillside Homeside lineup which features various artforms and an array of incredible talent.
You can enjoy performances from William Prince, Haviah Mighty, Julian Taylor, Buffy Ste. Marie, Terra Lightfoot and more. Hillside Homeside has also planned for poetry, comedy and live readings from artists including Christa Couture and Brandon Ash-Mohammed among others. The event will also feature Drum & Dance sessions for those who want to pick up a new skill and get some exercise.
You can check it out for yourself for free at any time that works for you on July 24th – 26th. The organizers have shared it will only be available to watch on those dates though. You can learn more here.
This year’s Hillside festival has been postponed to July 23rd-25th, 2021.
