Strangewaves began in 2015 as a modest music collective created by a group of friends from Hamilton, Ontario. While events like Festival of Friends and Supercrawl were established in Hamilton, our community lacked an avenue for eclectic, offbeat artists to exhibit their work without the constraints of profit and marketability. As such, our collective is devoted to organizing events that exhibit new, bold and diverse works of art, affordably and accessibly. Electronic, hip-hop, [free] jazz, folk, rock, punk,  avant-garde, classical music are examples of the kinds of acts we book. We believe that artistic diversity generates greater audience inclusivity which, in turn, fosters enriching and safer spaces. Since 2015, we’ve thrown approximately 135 events in Hamilton, many of which were free to attend.
