Today is the day.
Ten ground-breaking Ontario-based acts will ascend the virtual stage Wednesday for remixTOGETHER, the Aga Khan Museum’s first-ever online music festival.
This celebration of musical connection kicks off at 2:30 pm ET and runs until 7:30 pm. Here’s how to tune in:

Each artist on the diverse bill takes a much-beloved musical tradition and infuses it with unexpected sonic colours and fresh ideas. Performing from home will challenge their ingenuity even further. Tune in to see artistic innovators flourish to new creative heights.
