/////////////// WYRD III ///////////////

 

Wyrd is a double-stage, multi-city music marathon curated by Weird Canada, recently named by CBC Radio 3 as the "Best Indie Music Website in Canada." Our traveling caravan of music features nineteen emerging Canadian bands from coast-to-coast in an explosive happening of audible euphoria. Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver will play host to the Wyrd caravan, offering a singular opportunity for Western Canadians to explore and discover the best of new Canadian music in one unforgettable evening.

The format is simple; we employ a two-stage setup bouncing performers back and forth between stages, making optimal use of our time and space by creating a continuous stream of live music.

The philosophy is bolder; we do not rely on known names and instead leverage Weird Canada's ethos of discovery, encouraging people to explore new directions in Canadian music.

The result is an abundant feast for the ears; an unabashed celebration of ground-breaking Canadian music with a creative and nonstop set-list where every performer is a headliner.

Wyrd III is the third incarnation of the wildly popular Wyrd Fest. Wyrd I materialized exclusively in Edmonton, Wyrd II expanded to Calgary and Lethbridge, and Wyrd III encompasses more of Western Canada by reaching all the way to Vancouver, BC.
