Luminato Festival, June 10-19
April 13, 2011
PuSh loves Luminato! This fabulous festival is a great reason to hop a flight from Vancouver to Toronto in June. Tickets go on sale this weekend.
We also want to give a special shout out to our friend Chris Lorway, Artistic Director of Luminato. In August of 2010, Chris spent some time with us here in Vancouver at the PuSh Festival offices to help consult on our business plan. His wisdom, kindness and humour was much appreciated. Thanks Chris!
For 10 extraordinary days, from June 10-19, 2011, Toronto’s stages, streets, and public spaces will be illuminated with arts and creativity. Now in its fifth year, Luminato is an annual multi-disciplinary celebration of theatre, dance, music, literature, visual arts, food, fashion, film, magic, and much more. The Luminato Festival embraces three key programming principles: collaboration, accessibility, and diversity, which are emphasized through an array of ticketed and free events.
This year, Luminato is particularly excited about our new, central hub location (Metro Square) in downtown Toronto, which will be home to a series of free outdoor concerts, featuring some of Canada’s best-known artists−from The Joel Plaskett Emergency and k.d. lang−as well as new discoveries from around the world. Luminato tickets go on sale Saturday, April 16, 2011 at luminato.com.
