“Before plans are made, before bags are packed and instruments tuned; before song takes shape in the mindmouthmusicalbody there is an open space. The beginnings of something unexpected can arrive thanks to the absence of plans, like a dream to a sleeper. After two years of pause we found a place to imagine newness. Could a festival be a poem? What might a thousand-sided dream sound like?
Through absence and empty stages, we have learned deep lessons about the importance of music, art, and culture. To be human is to be in relationship with one another and ourselves. We make plans to see one another when the time is right and when we meet again in Victoria Park, art is at the heart of what we share: a music festival-as-ritual to help us mark the passage of our summers, our lives.
Let this poem of a festival be a restorative and joyous dream.”
- Amber Goodwyn, Artistic Director
