Get weird in sudbury

Sudbury is weird and wonderful place. Come check it out and make a full stay out of it.
We've teamed up with Porter Airlines and hotels around the Nickel City to get you all nice and settled in.

The discounted fares are available for booking from June 23, 2017 to August 22, 2017 and available for travel from anywhere in Canada or the US.

You're obviously coming to Sudbury just for us. But if you do decide to show up earlier or stay a little later after the festival, there's tons of cool things to do in the Nickel. Go cliff diving at Silver Lake, or go win meat at Porketta Bingo, or go play with the porcupine at Science North or go take that mandatory photo in front of that big chunk of change like our buddy Alex.

Volunteer Your Time

We need all the help we can get. We want you to enjoy Up Here as much as possible. Volunteers will get into the main show on Saturday night for free. We've also developed a rewards program to get you more cool stuff and access to more shows based on how much you can commit.

Host a Radio Show

Up Here is teaming up with CKLU 96.7 FM to pump out some special festival radio programming. We are looking for 8 radio shows to fill some spots on the air between August 18th and 20th.

Want to host an awkward call-in show, ask Up Here artists their favourite colours, or interview your cheerful grandma live on the air? Submit it for consideration before July 25th.


Up Here is an independent urban art & music festival in Sudbury, Ontario founded in 2015.

We are a project of We Live Up Here, a volunteer run non-profit organisation founded in 2012 around the simple idea that art can bring people together and can playfully reshape our community.
