Musicians of all genres, ages, and levels are set to perform from garages, porches, storefronts, and restaurants when the Open Tuning Festival returns to Seaton Village from noon to 9 p.m. on June 9. Founded in 2014 by a group of local residents, the free music festival will feature over 100 performers and 20 venues.

Billed as a listening experience, Open Tuning encourages audience members to roam from stage to stage (or porch to porch as it were), taking in the music from all corners of Seaton Village, a historical neighbourhood bordered by Bloor, Dupont, Bathurst, and Christie streets.

Run entirely by volunteers, the festival is open to performers of all ages and skill levels. For more information on the festival, please visit
