OBEY Convention has long helped Halifax keep it weird, bringing artists and free thinkers of all types—from punk icon Debbie Friday to Portuguese Kudro legend Nída to NYC underground queen Pharmakon—to make wild, wonderful noise in our seaside city. Last Valentine's Day, the fest received a cease-and-desist letter from the clothing line OBEY and has heeded the call, changing its name to EVERYSEEKER—which, according to a press release, is lifted from a poem the fest founder heard while programming new parts of the event.

Another new thing? EVERYSEEKER plans to expand its off-season offerings, doing a monthly series of shows and workshops all winter long. Get amped for names like Afro-futurist punk Moor Mother, Brooklyn-based astral flute player Ka Baird, Toronto club queen Chippy Nonstop (shown above) and more.

The fest itself returns June 18-21, 2020.
