LOLA Festival Returns

Summer holidays can sometimes wreak havoc on a bloggers news cycle but I would be remiss if I were to leave this item unmentioned. In the better late than never department - some terrific London Ontario music news.

The artist listing for the fourth incarnation of the London Ontario Live Arts Festival (LOLA) has been announced and as always it looks pretty fantastic. Final Fantasy, Akron/Family, Bruce Peninsula, Polar Bear, A Horse and His Boy, Canaille and Nihilist Spasm Band, NOMO, and the University Of Western Ontario New Music Ensemble are some of the musical acts that will play the London Ontario Live Arts Festival (LOLA) from Sept. 17th to 19th.

Free concerts and programming will once again be held in London's Victoria Park and over three days.

“By turning night into day, day into night – warping time and space metaphorically and psychologically – the artists of LOLA 2009 will generate visions of brilliance and darkness that will challenge the senses and ignite the imagination,” states Paul Walde, Artistic Director for LOLA.

LOLA 2009 will once again free concerts in Victoria Park, feature art exhibitions throughout the city's downtown area and the Forest City Gallery, along with a downtown light-based installation that will transform an entire city block.

More information about the festival is available on the LOLA website.

Okay, so now it's my turn to be insanely jealous. Free concerts in the park, art installations, downtown light shows?

And London is so nice in the fall too. Tempting, tempting.
