For complete festival information see: http://eemusicfest.wordpress.com/

The wind blows at a different frequency in Lethbridge, it brings out the crazy and puts people in frenzy. Maybe this is why so many great acts and bands have been coming out of this backwater town. Electric Eye aims to add fuel this grassfire by hosting a free showcase of Lethbridge’s best emerging artists and bands and bring in acts from the surrounding area, for one mind blistering day, SATURDAY MAY 10th.

Electric Eye will run during the afternoon and evening at The Slice Bar and Grill, Owl Acoustic Lounge, Blueprint Records and Telegraph Tap House. Please see our schedule for more details and get involved by volunteering.
