Festivities :: Obey Convention V [Halifax, NS]

Obey Convention V
After a year hiatus, Halifax’s “festival of damaged music and art” returns to meld the minds of all fringeward folk daring enough to visit Canada’s creative zenith. The Obey phenomenon is not one to take lightly; an intense weekend of dense and creative sinusoids exploding within the tightest and most inspiring community in Canada; a beacon for the creative minds and disparate youth scattered within isolated communities; four days of unadulterated experimental glory. Without hyperbole, it’s one of the most important musical happenings in Canada, and we are most humbled to be a part of such a vision. So, please, join us in Halifax and seek salvation upon the alter of OBEY.
