Gates open at 11:30 am on Saturday, September 16th.

Wake the Giant Music Festival returns to the Thunder Bay waterfront this September! The world-class event that celebrates inclusivity and Indigenous culture hits the stage Saturday, September 16th. Canadian DJ deadmau5, rock-pop band X Ambassadors and Australian singer-songwriter Dean Lewis are set to headline, joined by Ruby Waters, MattMac, Sagatay, Thunder Bay local Sara Kae and Thunder Spirit.

Festival goers can expect a ton to do with a live art installation, cultural experiences, yummy local eats (you have to try the bannock tacos) and an Indigenous Craft Market. This is a family-friendly event that includes a Kids Zone just for your littles!

Tickets will be sold in a supply-based tiered structure, meaning the price goes up per tier (if you snooze you lose). If a tier sells out the next tier of tickets will be available to purchase the following business day. Once the final tier sells out, tickets will no longer be available online or at the gate.

Children 11 and under are free but still require a general admission ticket by selecting the options below. All guests in VIP require a full-price ticket.

Wake the Giant is an alcohol-free event.

Wake the Giant is a movement that was created in 2019 to provide the Thunder Bay community with awareness and tools to better respond to racism and help celebrate the enduring cultural diversity of Indigenous Peoples. All funding raised from the music festival supports Indigenous youth that are high school students from remote First Nation communities, which includes orientation events, workshops and the transition to life in the city.
