(Edmonton) - The 2nd Winterruption YEG festival announces a new set of dates for their stacked line-up of music, comedy, drag and more taking place in downtown Edmonton from March 31 to April 3, 2022. The winter festival takes place in multiple downtown Edmonton venues including The Starlite Room, Rocky Mountain Icehouse, Temple, The Cask & Barrel, Soho Yeg, Downtown Edmonton Community League and a series of free outdoor events at The Backyard YEG on 101st and 104 ave. In addition to the 4 day festival weekend, there will be bonus events on March 27, April 8 and 9 to add even more value to the $45 festival wristband.

Highlights of this year’s diverse line-up still include previous announced artists TOPS, Indigenous hip hop from Snotty Nose Rez Kids & Dj Shub, Toronto’s The Sadies, Polaris prize nominee DijahSB, Juno nominee Julian Taylor, Rich Aucoin, Boy Golden, San Antonio’s Garrett T. Capps & Nasa County, Cayley Thomas, daysormay, Eamon Mcgrath, Altameda, The Bobby Tenderloin Universe, Charlotte Cornfield, Astral Swans, Shaela Miller, The Provincial Archive, Miesha & The Spanks, Chastity, The Hearts, Strange Breed, CBC’s Because News host Gavin Crawford and Vancouver’s Stop Podcasting Yourself.

Additions to the new dates of the festival include TEKE:TEKE, a pre-weekend event with Montreal’s Braids, Vancouver glam star Art D'ecco, Milwaukee’s Alan Ward and a special evening of drag with international star Morgan McMichaels and many more. Unfortunately, a few artists could not make the revised dates including Brooklyn’s Diet Cig.

Festival Producer Brent Oliver says: “All six western Canadian winter festivals have performed the herculean task of rescheduling over a hundred acts, in dozens of venues to make this all work for safe and fun events. We hope that two months from now we can get back to what we all love doing - experiencing live music again, together.”

Festival wristbands and shows are on sale starting Thursday, January 27 at 10am through Limited festival wristbands are only $45 plus service charge, with other events ranging from free to $22 per show. All previously purchased tickets and wristbands will be honoured. The festival also requires all patrons, volunteers, artists and venue staff to be at least double vaccinated against Covid-19. Negative tests will not be sufficient.
