The Pearl Company has just issued a press release announcing that a group of Hamiltonians "has begun to undertake the development of a new multi-disciplinary festival that will have its beginning in August of this year."
This comes in response to today's news that the Festival of Friends is leaving Gage Park to a new home in Ancaster.
According to Gary Santucci, co-owner of the Pearl Company, the strength of the Festival of Friends was its central location and accessibility. "[W]hether on foot, by public transit or by car, thousands of people converged on Gage Park and shared a common musical experience in an urban setting second to none."
The proposed festival would take place in a variety of locations and venues throughout Ward 3 and would comprise a mix of paid and free events.
