Last year's S.C.E.N.E. Music Festival drew over 6,000 people and attracted industry and media interest from throughout North America. This benchmark year featured 170+ bands on 19 stages (including 2 outdoor stages) at 13 all-ages venues all within easy walking distance of St. Catharines' downtown.

Genres accepted include: independent pop, hip-hop, reggae, ska, Celtic, country, folk, queer, punk, metal, funk, emo and rock. Some artists are paid, some play for free. S.C.E.N.E. features local, national and international independent artists.

The S.C.E.N.E. Music Festival has provided a vital springboard for such artists as Billy Talent, Alexisonfire, Silverstein, City & Colour, Neverending White Lights, Shad, Ill Scarlet, Midway State, USS, the Mahones, Cancer Bats, Attack In Black and Bedouin Soundclash. They have also featured international acts like Madball, Every Time I Die, Del the Funkee Homosapien, Naysayer, and Shai Hulud.

While maintaining the original 1995 festival's strong focus on Niagara-based independent acts, the S.C.E.N.E. Festival has become a drastically more diverse event. Featuring a S.C.E.N.E. Market pavillion, located at the S.C.E.N.E. headquarters and main staging area, S.C.E.N.E. performing artists gather to sell their wares alongside labels, vendors and aritsans.
