Wow WayHome Music & Arts, what a weekend that was! We made our way down to Oro-Medonté for our second year in a row to check out this 3 day celebration of stunning performances, art installations and headliners Flume, Imagine Dragon and Frank Ocean. For the past 3 consecutive summers, WayHome Music & Arts has transformed the Burl's Creek Event Grounds into a 585 acre getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. Lush greens stretch across the horizon with breathtaking kalideoscopic sunsets filling the blue sky. The iconic WayHome flags line the hills within the venue, creating spaces of shade and relaxation for festival-goers looking to sit back and enjoy the vibes from afar. Each curated stage brings it's own ambiance to the experience: WayBright, WayAway and WayHome.

The weekend was host to musical guests from Justice, The Shins, Foster The People, Danny Brown, Andy Shauf, Vance Joy, Solange, Marshmello, Jazz Cartier, Louis The Child, Mura Masa, Jahkoy, Bank, Schoolboy Q, Charles Bradley, Jagwar Ma, Daniel Caesar, and Clairmont The Second - to name a few. The small and intimate (and air conditioned lol...) Perrier Tent hosted both aclaimed and local acts like Killa Kels, Ryan Hemsworth, Jayem Kayem, Sophie Jones, Falcons, and Derek Wise.
