Kazoo! Fest 2019 Lineup Announced!

 In Kazoo Fest! 2019

We’re back for our 12th annual festival featuring a genre-defying lineup of independent artists from across Canada. Over five action-packed days in Guelph, Ontario, Kazoo! Fest will feature 40+ musical performances, visual and media art, contemporary dance, the Kazoo! Print Expo, and more.

This year’s boldly curated music lineup includes a special performance by the Queer Songbook Orchestra – a 12-piece chamber pop ensemble exploring queer narratives in pop music as well as JUNO nominated and Polaris shortlisted indigenous hip hop duo Snotty Nose Rez Kids. Other lineup highlights include a full-band performance by Jennifer Castle, Yves Jarvis (formerly Un Blonde), and a set from legendary Chicago-based electronic producer Hieroglyphic Being (Soul Jazz / Ninja Tune).

Kazoo! Fest 2019 will also include a co-presentation with indigenous record label RPM (Revolutions Per Minute) as well as a selection of notable artists from across Canada including: JOYFULTALK, DJ Kookum, Motherhood, John Southworth & The South Seas, Thanya Iyer, Pantayo, TRP.P, Edna King, Bonnie Doon, and many more. See the full lineup here.

A number of well-loved Kazoo! Fest traditions are back this year including the Kazoo! Print Expo featuring comic-makers, zinesters, and printmakers as well as the Guelph edition of Short&Sweet, a hugely popular contemporary dance event. Kazoo! will be working with Ed Video Media Arts Centre to present a lineup of media and visual art events including an independent video game exhibit curated by Toronto’s Hand Eye Society, a performance by media artist Tasman Richardson, work by visual artist Shaheer Zazai, and Trinketron Turbo 2000, a mobile robotic vending machine. And it wouldn’t be Kazoo! Fest unless the weekend was capped off with a Pancake Breakfast show on Sunday morning.

The Kazoo! Crony Pass (festival passes) are on sale now for $75 as well as tickets for select events. The full schedule will be announced in the coming weeks.
