SCENE Ups the Ante for Festival in St. Catharines

Published: 2005-04-20
Heading into its eleventh year, the SCENE festival (also known as the St. Catharines Event for New music and Entertainment) will once again celebrate all that is great and good in the indie music world. Expanding to include ten venues from the original three used back in 1995, SCENE will take over downtown St. Catharines, Ontario, on July 10th, 2005.

SCENE will be bigger and better than ever thanks to the 85 participating bands. Past acts include the likes of Alexionfire, Billy Talent, Raising The Fawn, and Tangiers. The full lineup for this year's event has yet to be announced, though City In Colour and Walking Concert are already confirmed.

Organizer Joel Carriere is already building up the hype for SCENE. "We exceeded what we wanted to do and have set way more goals for this yearÖ We have added an outdoor stage and have some great bands that we can't announce until July 1st. Öit's going to be insane this year."

Once again, those who come early to SCENE will receive a free compilation of the bands featured in the event. This year the compilation has expanded to include two discs, with a whopping 45 bands included on the mix. For a chance to be on that compilation and play in the festival, download an application at
