We've partnered with Uber to offer guests their first black car ride free up to $30 on rides to or from Festival Music House on Sunday or Monday.
Festival Music House marks its fourth year, now inside a new home with a new format and as ever, an exciting roster of Canadian performers. Adelaide Hall (250 Adelaide St. W.), one of Toronto’s newest concert venues, will play host to the now two-night event, taking place Sunday, September 8 and Monday, September 9. As in previous years, the invite-only concert series takes will roll out during the height of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), showcasing a range of Canada’s impressive musical talent for producers, directors, writers, actors, music supervisors and Festival delegates.
This year’s line-up boasts a notable list of established artists including Juno Award-winner Dragonette, Toronto natives and FMH veterans Diamond Rings and The Darcys, and five-piece Vancouver-based indie rock group Mother Mother. Other musical talent taking the stage include bluesy Tom Waits/June Carter-inspired band July Talk, the lively and exuberant Rich Aucoin, Toronto dance rockers Nightbox and Juno and Latin Grammy Award-winning Canadian-Cuban artist Alex Cuba.
“This year’s Festival Music House is particularly exciting as our new home is at TIFF ground zero,” said Jeffrey Remedios, co-founder of event producer Arts & Crafts. “FMH continues to grow as an unparalleled music discovery resource as we share so many of Canada’s great musicians with the most influential names and creative leaders in the film community.”
Past FMH stages have featured performances from some of Canada’s most reputable musical talent, including K’NAAN, City and Colour, The Sheepdogs, Gord Downie, Dan Mangan and Stars. An elite networking opportunity and key event in the TIFF circuit, FMH consistently garners praise from VIPs and media alike and has been heralded year after year as one of TIFF’s best parties.

Previous FMH performances have included some of Canada’s most important established and emerging talent, including Gord Downie, K’NAAN, Sam Roberts Band, City and Colour, Stars, Arkells, The Sheepdogs, Diamond Rings and many more. FMH has also been consistently hailed as one of the best, most highly-anticipated events during TIFF.
