BITS’s live show is a dance party with a mix of projection installations, multi-instrumental loops and rhythmic fast hiphop words and beats, reinforced with floating ambient sounds and a drummer that turns this dance party into a rock show. BITS is also a VJ projectionist to many of the same festivals he’s performed at such as Evolve,Future Forest, Midsummer Madness, AcadieRock just to name a few. In touring, BITS always brings his visuals with him. BITS is compared to acts such as Holy F*ck, Beck, Radiohead, The Roots, Bonobo and Gold Panda.

PsyPhi

What’s a festival without an amazing VJ to create and manipulate imagery in real time through technological mediation and what a way to synchronize it to music??? Slightly addicted and now spending way too much time creating visuals and refining his ability to generate new displays for our entertainment pleasure, he VJs live allowing the music to guide the light in reaction to the environment. He’s a crowd pleaser!

Mr Ganzo

Inspired by nature and technology his psychedelic art displays are printed on high quality canvases and large fabric banners. Created over a span of more than three years this “winter collection” will exhibit over 20 pieces during our festival. This artist has been a supporter and promoter of the psychedelic subculture as a member of the Canadian art collective and Voie Alternative where he acts as a spokesman and art director. Passionate about arts and sounds with a taste for underground music he is also emerging as a label DJ powered by Insonitus Records

Visions of Ajra

I work in watercolors & inks, but I love creating in many mediums. Music, symmetry, nature, people, sacred geometry, and ancient symbols are some of my inspirations. Ajra is my Atlantean name, from my first incarnation on Earth, & Jenna Elizabeth Odhner is my birth name. I studied at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon, where I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 2012.

Redbush Studios

“Drawing, painting, sculpting pretty much anything I can create; I have always been into art…” The artist behind Redbush studios, Meredith Anderson re-emerged her creative spirit in colorful neon bright paintings, which became increasingly popular in a very short time. After the birth of her daughter she had to trade passions for a while, but now that her daughter grew a little older and more independent, she is able to better blend the two. With more time to let her mind wonder and create as once before, Mer is excited to do some live painting and proudly exhibit her work at our festival this year. Enjoy!

GnarlyWaves

The talented Geoff Rumson is a skateboarder, a snowboarder, and a painter which allows him to be unique and creative. All about good vibes and staying positive he wants to get people feeling happy. ” I’m a groovy guy and I’m always listening to music and this movement flows straight into my art. I like to showcase nature and get people thinking about our world differently”. His art comes in a variety of styles, influenced by cartoons, skateboard art, street art, and realistic visionary art. As he will be live painting at our festival this year he would like to create an acrylic painting on canvas of a Mandala radiating from Earth, and into the dark universe. Stop by to watch him!
