It was one heck of a weekend – just ask anyone who attended Saskatoon’s MoSoFest.
Spanning from June 14 to 16 and featuring over 50 bands in eight different venues, MoSoFest managed to capture the energy and vibe of other big time multi-venue festivals such as NXNE (which happened on the same weekend) and Sled Island (which is this upcoming weekend).
Even more interesting, MoSoFest came on the heels of MoSoConf, a tech conference aimed at promoting Saskatoon's up-and-coming social media-minded community.
Suffice to say Saskatoon, this was one to remember.
For those not in attendance at the Festival, imagine a variety of bands, both local and internationally acclaimed, coming together to play sold out venues across the Broadway area with patrons scrambling in-between stages to catch their favourite acts in a mad exercise of time management.
Some highlights include Busdriver’s insane freestyle raps while hanging from the rafters at Lydia’s, Bry Webb giving a touching and intimate performance at the Broadway Theatre, Shotgun Jimmie being backed by recent Polaris Prize long-listers Cannon Bros. and the Ketamines playing to a sold out room at the Fez.
Then again, with so much going on and so many bands to take in, everyone likely had a completely different and unique MoSo experience.
Cheers to everyone who helped make the weekend a success!
