If you haven't heard yet, The Deep North is one of the players - - along with breakandenter and Hushlamb - - behind this summers Sound In Motion Electronic Music Festival, a totally independent project headed by the brilliant people at Studiofeed which will be bringing some seriously amazing music and art to Canada's multicultural capital of tunage.
The three-day festival will focus on electronic music, namely house and techno - - but expect more than that - - and is scheduled to run from Friday July 13 through to Sunday July 15. The festival is unique in that it is a not-for-profit event which spans three days, is held at various downtown locations - - including Sugar Beach (1000+ Capacity) and a huge warehouse location - - showcases a large number of local artists as well as an exciting lineup of international acts into the mix. The best part of this event is that the festival, unlike some other "festivals" happening this summer, is a completely independent undertaking - - there is no bullshit here - - free of any corporate funding, relying solely on the time and effort of a music loving community. That's what we are talking about, baby!!
While the complete lineup and schedule of events has not been uncovered yet - - read: more to come - - below I will quickly list some of the exciting acts that will be rocking one of several festival events happening Friday night, Saturday, Saturday Night and Sunday.

Unlike other festivals, the Sound in Motion event is unbeleivably affordable. especially if you act now and purchase your Early Bird Weekend Pass. The Early Bird Pass is a super steal at only $55.00, but is only offered for a limited time and at a very limited number of 200 passes. I have just been told by our accounts department that these Early Bird Passes are ALMOST SOLD OUT so save yourself time and money by buying them online right now - - by using either Debit or Credit! Yes, that is right, you can use your debit card to make this simple transaction. Don't sleep on this deal guys!
We are super excited for this event, and we cannot stress enough just how important it is that you come out and support this wonderful music festival. We know how many complaints we all have heard about Toronto's lack of anything close to a real music festival. Well, here it is people... this is our chance to make our dreams a reality, let's build something that will grow and continue years into the future. For more information on this event, make sure you check out the sound in motion website. See ya there!
