Very excited to be playing this March Break family friendly event at the wonderful Gravenhurst Opera House. Even more excited to be playing supported by The Dandy Lions (Allister Bradley and Riley O'Connor).
Hello my family, friends and fans,
I’ll be playing via a 10 minute video performance at this year’s Hillside Homeside festival (July 23-25) on the Rainbow Stage (performance for children). https://hillsidefestival.ca/performers/having-a-dandy-time-with-matt-gerber/
From about 6:15pm on Friday July 23, until the end of the weekend, my (and all other performer’s) video(s) will be available. There are no scheduled “broadcast” times, and the videos will be available all weekend, so you could watch at your convenience.
For the full artist and event lineup refer to the lineup page;
Homeside is free, however there is a Donation page for those who would like to contribute. https://hillsidefestival.ca/donate/
Below are some links and an extract on “How to Homeside” (FAQ)
HOW TO HOMESIDE
Homeside gives you the opportunity to curate your own schedule from a feast of offerings that will be available online for about 54 hours July 23-25, 2021. So, play artistic director this weekend, and make your own playlist from over 100 performances and workshops.
When does it start? Is there a schedule?
The festival opens at 6:00pm on Friday with our Welcome from the Main Stage. At 6:15pm, most of the programming will be available on the different stages/pages of our website (you might have to refresh the page if you open it earlier). The videos will be available all weekend, and by Monday morning they will all be gone.
How do we watch performances?
On the festival weekend, you can access performances in three ways: watch videos by going to an artist’s page, watch them by going to the Stage pages, or watch them by going to a playlist that we have set up per Stage. Or you can combine these approaches. For now, until the festival is underway, you can click on artists’ and presenters’ names on our Lineup or Stage pages to learn more about them. This is how you become your own festival curator and artistic director.
On each stage of the summer festival, here’s what you will find:
Main Stage – Opening /
Island Stage – Gospel / Youth Showcase
Lake Stage – Now and Then / Partner presentations
Sun Stage – Poetry / Readings / Theatre/ Spoken Word
Rainbow Stage – Performances and children’s workshops
Indigenous Circle – Message
Drum & Dance – Performances and workshops
Workshops – Active Living / Body and Mind / DIY / Environment / Interplay / Performing Arts
Food – Cooking with culinary artists
Stay dandy my friends!
