to Headline the 11th Annual Spring Music Festival

Fresh from moving into a new downtown Hamilton office, the organizers of the Spring Music Festival are pleased to announce the headliners and partners for this year's event

Using this year's festival as a precursor to a larger 2014 festival, organizer Rob Rapiti says that while this year's festival may be smaller in comparison to previous years, it will still be Hamilton's best place to be if you are looking for a party on May 9th, 10th & 11th.

Concerts are planned for the Legendary Corktown Pub (upstairs & downstairs) as well as the Seventy Seven building which includes the Underground. Rapiti and his team are in negotiations with artists and agents and expect to have the complete line up within a week.

The festival has partnered with Southern Ontario’s Best Rock, 97.7 HTZ-FM as the official Presenting Sponsor. Many are familiar with the festival’s annual Rock and Roll Challenge™, where one band was awarded $25,000 in cash and prizes as part of a larger development package (including $5000 in cash).  In lieu of staging the Challenge this year, the festival has partnered with HTZ-FM’s annual ROCKSEARCH, the station’s  independent music competition that has helped launch the careers of such Canadian acts as Finger 11 and The Trews.  Spring Music Festival will be providing prizing and hosting pre-festival events at the Legendary Corktown Pub in Hamilton. More details are to come. The festival also welcomes back sponsors, including Athens Printing, Long & McQuade Burlington and Steam Whistle Brewing.

The complete line up with be made available on the festival web site shortly.
