History

SCENE Music Festival, returns for its 19th year in St. Catharines. The annual festival has evolved into one of the largest and most anticipated, all-ages, independent music festivals in the region. This year, for the first time, the festival will be held over a two-day period, with the mainstage relocating to Montebello Park in St. Catharines.

The festival attracts over 6000 fans to downtown St. Catharines each year, and is a hotbed for up-and-coming musical talent across all genres, featuring both Canadian and international talent. Past S.C.E.N.E. performers have come from as far as Europe, Australia, the U.S., and beyond, to take part in the festival.

SCENE Music Festival has selected over 300 Sonicbids artists to perform since 2009 and in 2014 the festival is looking to select a number Sonicbid submissions to play in venues right across downtown St. Catharines.

It has now become one of "THE" summer destinations for music fans. The SCENE Music Festival through its history has brought fans from all over Canada and the United States.

Past performers include Bedouin Soundclash, City and Colour, Down With Webster, The Creepshow, Down With Webster, Alexisonfire, Jason Collett (Broken Social Scene), USS, Billy Talent, Arkells, Constantines, Lights, Teenage Head, illScarlett, Cancer Bats, Shad, Silverstein, and many of the best and brightest talents in independent music today.

The 19th Annual SCENE Music Festival will be held on Saturday, June 28th and Sunday, June 29th 2014.
