I will be in the thriving metropolis of Geulph, Ontario, this weekend to get in touch with my inner hippie while attending the Hillside Festival. Hillside is a festival of music and community, featuring Canadian and international artists, up-and-coming artists, and local talent. There are also activities for children and families, aboriginal arts, workshops, and craft vendors. The festival takes environmentalism so seriously that you have to bring your own bottle if you want water, you have to purchase a souvenir mug if you want beer, and all of the food is served on dishes that are washed and reused.
The musical lineup looks amazing. Here are some tracks from a few of the many artists that I am looking forward to seeing.
