S.C.E.N.E. is the St. Catharines Event for New music Entertainment, a locally based independent music festival. It has evolved into one of the largest and most anticipated one-day, all-ages, independent music festivals in Canada.

S.C.E.N.E. has selected over 210 Sonicbids bands to perform since 2009. For 2013, the festival is guaranteeing to select at least 21 Sonicbids artists.

Last year's S.C.E.N.E. Music Festival drew over 5,000 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 the exposure and opportunity. 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, Monster Truck 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 the 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 artisans with 100% of all merch sales guaranteed to the artist.
