Supercrawl is walking tall back to its traditional neighbourhood corridor this September, first time since 2019, and what’s more with a stellar lineup that includes such headliners as Sarah Harmer, Tim Baker, The Dirty Nil, Hamilton All-Stars, Charlotte Day Wilson and Lido Pimienta.
Supercrawl festival director Tim Potocic revealed the roster Thursday (June 30), at a special announcement meeting and celebration of the event’s return to normal location, James Street North, and noted that Supercrawl 2022 will feature more than 40 musical acts, as well as an array of visual and performance artists, over the three days, from Sept. 9 to 11.
“We’re thrilled and energized to be returning to James North,” Potocic said. “Supercrawl’s core commitment is to artists and makers, and we’ve always been strongly anchored in Hamilton’s downtown, so this is definitely a milestone moment.
“The arts sustained a lot of people through a challenging couple of years, and that connection was a lifeline for many of us, so it’s amazing to be able to celebrate artists again in this way — and to do so together, in person. We can’t wait to see you all again this September.”
In addition to the headliners, other musical artist include Altameda, Tynomi Banks, The Barettas, Blind Mule, Breeze, Nuela Charles, Dearly Beloved, Ellevator, Espanola, Fame Cartel, Golden Feather, Sarah Good & The Bads, Hamilton Children’s Choir, Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra Brass Quintet, The Hidden Cameras, Cam Kahin, Shawnee Kish, LOONY, Loviet, Olivia Lunny, Eamon McGrath, Nezqwik, Northern Cree, OMBIIGIZI, Lydia Persaud, Lido Pi-mienta, Pleasure Craft, Queen Cee with GSSO and Duckai, Amanda Rheaume, Tallies, Julian Taylor, TRP.P, and JJ Wilde.
There will also be an interactive residency from international post-industrial art rock performance troupe Squonk, who will bring their touring production “Hand to Hand” to the festival for shows on Sept. 10 and 11.
The lineup at Supercrawl, which this year is being presented by TD Bank Group, was announced at Bridgeworks, a new community hub and arts event space on the edge of Hamilton’s Central Park that has served as home to many Supercrawl-produced events since it opened its doors in the autumn of 2020.
