Details

Up Here, Sudbury’s urban art and music festival, reveals the headliners and emerging artists that will be a part of its musical programming. The festival, back for its fifth-anniversary edition, runs Friday, August 16 to Sunday, August 18, 2019, in downtown Sudbury.

The festival’s signature geodesic dome (and pop-up bar!) will also return to Durham Street. The main dome area will have its own unique schedule of musical acts and DJs to keep the party going under the sun and the stars. Access to the festival’s main site is free throughout the weekend.

Festival-goers will experience three days of concerts by over 40 established and emerging acts, witnessing the live creation of new large-scale murals and art installations along the way. This year’s selection of local artists and public art programming will be announced mid-May.

Up Here curates an ambitious musical program in line with the event’s signature spirit of curiosity and discovery.

Hailing from the Bronx, ESG formed at the start of Hip-Hop in 1978. They became one of the most sampled groups ever among their contemporaries including Public Enemy, LL Cool J, Marley Marl, and Grandmaster Flash. Shortly afterwards, they were adopted by the underground dance scene. Today, after a career spanning 41 years, ESG’s sparse, raw, percussion-led sound continues to inspire and influence new generations.
