Welcome to 5/4 FEST, Toronto’s First Festival of Progressive Music
5/4 FEST is Toronto’s first progressive music festival. We ran the first year of the festival on August 19 @ Hard Luck Bar and August 20 @ Lee’s Palace, featuring in total 8 local progressive rock and metal bands.
In March 2017, 5/4 FEST received funding from FACTOR towards the development of the next (2017) edition of the festival. The submission process for the 2017 edition of the festival will be opened in June, 2017
5/4 FEST is jointly organized and ran by two singers, Nico Mira of LEA and Alia Synesthesia. Both are devoted fans of progressive music and local show organizers.
We hope to make 5/4 fest a recurring event celebrating local progressive music and the best progressive local bands Toronto has to offer.
WE ACKNOWLEDGE THE FINANCIAL SUPPORT OF FACTOR AND CANADA’S PRIVATE RADIO BROADCASTERS
