We’re very excited to announce Mykki Blanco, Raven Chacon (in duo with Laura Ortman, already announced), WHOOP-Szo, Glitclit, and Lary 7!
Some artists are still trickling in, so we will make another announcement next week with more performers and DJs, as well as our installations and films for this year!
We’ve done a partial lineup announcement! Lots more stuff is still to come, but for now, head over to the Program page for a peek at some of what’s on the horizon!
The first round of early bird tickets is on sale through our ticket page! While quantities last, $55 will get you three days and nights of camping, music, installations, film, and dancing! This represents a savings of $30 over the gate price, but as we draw nearer to the festival date, the advance passes will become more expensive as they sell out. It will always be cheaper to buy early, so don’t sleep on this!
We’ll be revealing part of our lineup in the first week of April, with the rest to follow soon after!
Submissions closed at 11:59 PM EST on January 15th, 2015! If you didn’t get yours in by then, we hope to hear from you in 2016! We received an AMAZING crop of submissions this year, but we can unfortunately only take a fraction of those. Our thanks to everyone who applied; those applicants who are successful will know in the coming weeks!
Submissions for EE 2015 are now open until January 15th at 11:59PM EST! We receive a large volume of submissions to choose from, and as such, we will not make any exceptions for late submissions, so please head over to the submissions page ASAP, and shoot us your submission email!
Boo! Hahaha, just kidding – this isn’t a real ghost, it’s just a post about Ghost Hole VI! This year, EE will be sponsoring the sixth annual Ghost Hole! It’s a Hallowe’en event/exhibit/performance, orchestrated primarily by Toronto artist Vanessa Rieger (who this year’s EE attendees might know as NIGHTLIFEGUARD). You should put together the best costume you can dream up, and head on down to the Ghost Hole on Thursday, October 30th, from 7pm to 1am! If you want to keep up with the latest news on how to live through the haunting on Devil’s Night, check out the Facebook event and Ghost Hole website!
It was great to see so many of you at EE! Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter (links in the left sidebar) throughout the coming year, in order to get details on early bird ticket sales, pre-festival EE events, and more. We’ll see you next Civic Holiday weekend for EE 10 – we suspect it’ll be a special one!
Late last night, our site’s database got overloaded, and the site went down. While it is functioning again, please follow us on Twitter @EEFestival and like us on Facebook so that we can provide you with information if the site goes down again. Thanks!
Feel like experiencing EE, but at even lower cost than our advance ticket prices? Well, we can still use some volunteers! Head on over to the Volunteer page and see if volunteering at EE sounds right for you!
For the last week leading up to the festival, we’re selling discounted day passes at $35 (a $5 savings)! These are being sold in addition to our discount weekend passes, which are still priced at only $65. Get yours through our ticket page! Discount passes, both weekend and day, will become unavailable for sale at 11:59 PM EST the night before the festival begins, so don’t delay.
