Olio Festival announces first wave of acts
The Olio Festival has leaked a bunch of this year’s artists to the Georgia Straight. Festival codirector Jason Sulyma said that the lineup is oriented toward local and national acts, which is where names like Shout Out Out Out Out, Julie Doiron, Brasstronaut, Teen Daze, Eight and a Half, and Gold & Youth come in, along with showcases from both Light Organ Records and the Hastings Set.
International performers coming to the fourth edition of the multidisciplinary arts celebration—which will run at various venues from September 20 to 23—include Dillon Francis, Flosstradamus, King Dude, and DJ Willy Joy. That’s just the music portion of the festival, and there are still more names to be announced. Olio’s organizers said they’ll officially reveal more at tonight’s (July 12) screening of the skateboarding doc Hicks on Sticks at the Rio Theatre.
