TORONTO, ON - May 10, 2017 - Sawdust City Music Festival presented by TD is pleased to unveil the full line-up for the inaugural 3-day festival this coming August 4-6 in Gravenhurst, ON. From the creative brainchild of renowned Canadian Singer-Songwriter, Musician & Label Owner Miranda Mulholland, the programming will consist of 3 nights of music at the Sawdust City Brewery, an evening of music at the Opera House, a free Songwriters' Workshop, a Sawdust Stripped Down acoustic series in various small venues about town, and a free concert on Sunday evening as part of the Music on the Barge series (a 50+ year tradition). Please see the full lineup for the brand new Sawdust City Music Festival listed below! Tickets for the festival are available now at www.sawdustcitymusicfestival.com.
The Sawdust City Music Festival is delighted to announce that TD has come on board as title sponsor for the first-time event. Over the years, TD has provided a great deal of support and commitment to a number of Canadian musical and community events from Coast to Coast, and the Sawdust City Music Festival is both proud and pleased to be a recipient of their generosity and goodwill toward the Canadian music community.
The festival is excited to also announce a relationship with Bullfrog Power for the inaugural launch. “Bullfrog Power is proud to be partnering with Sawdust City Music Festival to ensure that an equivalent amount of green electricity goes onto the grid to match the amount of conventional power the festival uses. Through our partnership, we’re reducing the event’s environmental impact, raising awareness of renewable energy and taking action on climate change,” said Anthony Santilli, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Bullfrog Power.
Miranda’s Great-Great-Grandfather was Charles Mickle, who owned the lumber mill that dubbed the town’s Sawdust City nickname, was Gravenhurst’s mayor twice, and commissioned the construction of the Opera House for the town’s residents. As the founder and Artistic Director of the Sawdust City Music Festival, Miranda’s goal is to celebrate her heritage while providing an amazing experience for residents and visitors alike, increasing cultural engagement at the community level in the beautiful town of Gravenhurst.
