The soundtrack to your day at Hillside Festival

The soundtrack to your day at Hillside Festival

Featuring indie artists from across Canada and more

This year’s Hillside lineup excels at what most other festivals don’t care to do — feature more female performers. 25 out of the 60+ acts at Hillside this year include a female member in the band, which is a significant number compared to many international festivals.

The not-for-profit music festival features a lineup of indie, singer-songwriter, folk, and alt-country artists from across Canada, including some Quebecois musicians such as Coeur De Pirate and Lisa LeBlanc.

Get excited for the upcoming festival with The Ontarion’s “Hillside” playlist, comprised of the festival’s top headliners as well as songs from your next potential favourite band.
