The ALL CAPS! Island Festival is an annual festival of independent music, visual arts and community for ALL AGES presented by Wavelength - Toronto’s longest-running non-profit, artist-run concert series - at Artscape Gibraltar Point on Toronto Island. The fourth edition of the ALL CAPS! Island Festival will take place August 11 &12, 2012.
The aim of the ALL CAPS! Island Festival is to take independent music out of its usual context and make it accessible to new audiences – via affordable ticket prices and all-ages admittance. Blessed by beaches and parkland, Toronto Island is an oasis of calm just a 10 minute ferry ride from the city’s downtown core. ALL CAPS! is the only music festival at which camping is permitted within the city of Toronto!
The 2011 Festival was such a huge success, featuring capacity crowds and memorable performances. Last year’s coveted camping passes sold out in just one day! The festival venue, Artscape Gibraltar Point, is a the site of a former public school converted to an artist retreat centre, which creates a gorgeous, intimate environment free of the line-ups and inconvenience of other, larger festivals.
