Nothing to Be Heard From Ear to the Ground

Published: 2005-09-16
Those of you looking forward to the Ear to the Ground Festival that was to take place this weekend in Toronto are in for a disappointment.

According to its official website,, the festival has been cancelled. All concerts that were planned for this weekend are no longer a go, though the film festival at Eastern Front Gallery and the spoken word extravaganza at Blue Moon will still take place.

This statement was posted on the website: "We are sorry, but we were not able to deliver the event that we promised for a variety of reasons, and even though we tried to move the festival and scale down, the fact is that it was extremely difficult to pull this off in such a short period of time, and too many people were left wondering what was happening. We realize that it was wrong to try to turn what was supposed to be a freeflowing outdoor festival into a series of club shows, and many people expressed their unhappiness at this. We tried to make this work, but we couldn't."

Refunds will be offered at the place of purchase. Any questions about refunds should be directed to
