Featured Artists

Half Moon Run
Emotional, and expansive, Montreal-based indie rockers Half Moon Run blend the alt-pop atmospherics of bands like Radiohead and Alt-J with the richly detailed, harmony-laden modern folk of Fleet Foxes. Get ready to get up and dance while these guys take the stage at the Atmosphere Gathering Music Festival.

Frivolous puts out jazz-infused experimental house, an incredible up and coming act.


DiRTY RADiO is one of those bands that you didn't know you knew, because you can sing along to every song they play. With every new track or remix they drop, DiRTY RADiO delivers a healthy dose of stylish, genre-bending substance. Their innovative brand of pop music fuses elements of future house and R&B into a unique sonic signature all its own.

DJ Shub

You may have heard DJ Shub before during his time with a Tribe Called Red. Enjoy this award-winning music producer. You can count two DMC Canada DJ Championship titles (2007 and 2008), a DMC Canadian Battle for Supremacy title (2008), a Canadian Red Bull Thre3style title (2012), and a King of the Dot Canada vs. USA DJ battle win along with trophies from the JUNO Awards and the Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards as some of his most notable accomplishments.
