All-Access | Get acquainted with the acts of #SuperCrawl2015

Supercrawl is a jewel in Hamilton’’s crown. It is a weekend packed with music, art, fashion, and food. The Supercrawl team, led by Tim Poticic and his crew at Sonic Unyon work all year to get great bands to play the various stages. This year is no exception; with brilliant music coming from Monster Truck, Elliott BROOD, Jessy Lanza, the Killjoys, Laura Cole, Terra Lightfoot and Steve Strongman.

Supercrawl kicks off early this year with Caribou; a ticketed show on August 7th at Pier 4. Then, in September, the festival starts early with a ticketed show on Thursday, September 10th at New Vision Church, featuring Whitehorse, Corb Land and Etiquette. Then the weekend really ramps up on Friday and runs right through until Sunday.
For more information about what you can expect, head to www.supercrawl.ca and follow them on Twitter (@supercrawl).

To help you get to know some of the bands, we’’ve asked them a series of questions.
Huge thanks to Tim and his team for their work, and we look forward to seeing you all at #Supercrawl2015.
