EVERYSEEKER was founded in 2006 to offer a much needed platform in Halifax for adventurous music of all kinds. Our organization has never been focused on a particular genre, instead, we look to showcase works of all kinds that explore new ideas and challenge assumptions. This open concept allows us to connect artists and audiences from divergent arts communities, consequently broadening notions of creativity and inspiring new ways of thinking and being together.
What started as a distinctly punk, DIY weekend has grown into one of the foremost new music presenters in the country. Over the years we’ve hosted daring talents from all across Canada and the US, France, Germany, Colombia, Indonesia, Scotland, Norway and more. We present an annual four-day festival each spring and a series of concerts and educational events throughout the winter months. Some notable performers include Moor Mother, Laraaji, Eartheater, DJ Haram, Angel Bat Dawid, Sarah Hennies, Pharmakon, Lea Bertucci, Elysia Crampton, Xylouris White, Senyawa, Tomoko Sauvage, RP Boo, Zs, Nadah El Shazly, Joe McPhee, Joshua Abrams, Peter Brotzmann, Tim Hecker, Beverly Glenn-Copeland and many more.
