What is CURRENT?
In the simplest terms, CURRENT is a summer music festival in downtown Winnipeg. But it is so much more than that. It is a new approach to music festivals in our city.
CURRENT will focus on local excellence in music, food, beverages and art, and will be presented with an appreciation for comfort, good design and convenience.
At CURRENT, everyone is a VIP. The comforts go beyond the conveniences offered by Winnipeg’s most popular urban meeting place, The Forks, and existing music festivals in Manitoba. Sit on soft furnishes in a beautifully designed food hall and enjoy basking in the sweet sounds of a favourite act, small-batch local beer and elevated restaurant fare in hand. Participate in interactive art and activities all with little-to-no-lineups, thanks to cashless wristbands.
We love music... but we also love sleeping in real beds.
We love music... but we also love quality local beer and a great cocktail and wine menu.
We love music... but we also love the creativity of our local chefs.
We love music... but we also love biking, walking, car-sharing or dancing back to our homes at the end of the night.
We love music... but we don’t want to pull out the “clothes we don’t mind ruining” to enjoy it.
At CURRENT, everything is touched by Winnipeg tastemakers – from the
live performances and fine-dining-calibre food, to the curated artisanal goods and activities, all the way to your cozy abode at the end of the night.
What We Have to Say
We are presenting a music festival that we want to attend: a festival that creates a community of people who share our love and appreciation for our city. CURRENT creates an experience you can’t find anywhere else by compiling the best this city has to offer in one place, for one weekend, every year.
So, if you love Winnipeg, save yourself a plane ticket and hotel costs and make your next summer festival experience a local one, in every sense. CURRENT is designed just for you.
CURRENT – To Winnipeg, With Love
