Celebrating the best of independent music – both Canadian and International – the event will also feature performances by 2014’s breakout band Alvvays, who graced the cover of this winter’s issue of Exclaim!. 2015 JUNO-nominated ‘Best Rock Album of the Year’ act The Glorious Sons are also set to take the stage, followed by Oklahoma’s fuzz-rock BRONCHO and Montreal’s Miracles.
