Something About EE

Electric Eclectics takes place on a farm overlooking the scenic Beaver Valley, just outside of Meaford, Ontario. The farm features some of the best sunsets you will ever see (we have proof: check the photos page).

Each year, we assemble an eclectic program of avant-garde and crossover musicians, as well as art installations, DJs, and films.

Past highlights have included Holy Fuck, Julianna Barwick, Damo Suzuki, Tony Conrad, HEALTH, AIDS Wolf, DD/MM/YYYY, Carla Bozulich, Katie Stelmanis (Austra), Chelsea Wolfe, US Girls, Doldrums, Dorit Chrysler, MYTHS, Let's Paint TV, Alexander Hacke, and Danielle de Picciotto.
