Open Ears Festival of Music and Sound

Open Ears – Festival of Music & Sound is an annual festival that celebrates innovation and disruption, while maintaining a focus on the art of ‘listening’.

As Waterloo Region emerged as a global hub for technology and innovation, it sparked a demand for arts and culture experiences that captured that same creativity. Open Ears strives to create unique concert experiences and disrupt the audience’s conceptions of what ‘music’ is, or what it can be.

Open Ears presents an eclectic range of festival events from indie classical music to electroacoustic to sound installations. The festival explores the theme of integrating community through the use of unexpected musical settings.
