The Canadian festival has put the final touches on a heavy-hitting lineup.

Tommy Wright III, Bearcat and Sam Rolfes are among the final names to be added to New Forms Festival 2019, which takes place on September 25 – 29 at various venues across Vancouver.

They will join a whole host of FACT favorites, including Aurora Halal, Debit, Lafawndah, Afrodeutsche, Dis Fig, LSDXOXO, Via App and many more for one of 2019’s heaviest-hitting lineups.

Some festival highlights include Anything But Quiet, a free audiovisual performance from Makino Takashi followed by performances from KK Null, A.F Jones/Dave Abramson, City + i.o and Seffrika, a selection of afterparties with D. Tiffany, Ginger Breaker, Ziibiwan, Overland, Venetta and Minimal Violence, as well as a variety of community panel discussions with queer collectives and members of PTP Records with FACT editor John Twells.

New Forms Festival respectfully acknowledges its location on unceded, traditional and ancestral xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), and səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) territories. A limited number of festival passes and weekend passes are available now.
