Sunfest is an annual Canadian festival of food, culture, art, and music that takes place in London, Ontario, Canada, every July. The festival venue is Victoria Park and is typically held the weekend after Canada Day. With over 275 000 people coming to attend, this is one of North America's biggest venues. Because of the success of the yearly festival, we have embarked on hosting mini events throughout the year to keep the spirit of Sunfest alive all year long.

The Opportunity

This is a great opportunity to get involved with one of Canada's most successful and longest lasting festivals. Because there's been a demand to produce mini concerts throughout the year, this is a great chance to play smaller shows and show the promoters that you have what it takes to play on the bigger stages at the festival.
