Event Details


(Hamilton, ON) The organizers of SUPERCRAWL 2013 are delighted to confirm the rest of the musical line up for this year’s edition of the festival, including the Saturday night headliner, as well as the performance schedule for all participating musical acts.

The headliner for Saturday, September 14th will be the critically-acclaimed American indie-pop band PASSION PIT. Formed in 2007 in Cambridge, MA, the band has released two studio albums, the latest being 2012’s Gossamer, which reached #4 on the Billboard Top 100 Album chart.

Hamilton’s LEE HARVEY OSMOND has confirmed a number of special guests to take part in their Saturday, September 14th performance at the Waterfront stage. These will include Amy Helm, daughter of the Band’s Levon Helm, Michael Timmins of the Cowboy Junkies and award winning Canadian blues singer Paul Reddick, amongst others.

Over the next few weeks we will be announcing more information about SUPERCRAWL 2013, including the art installation pieces, performance artists, dance troupes, theatre artists and other multi-media performers that will be taking part in this year’s festival.


The second weekend of September will see the fifth annual SUPERCRAWL festival happen on James Street North in Hamilton. What started in 2009 as a one-night extension of the monthly Art Crawl, which attracted nearly 3,000 people on a rainy October evening, has grown into a two-day award-winning festival headlined by international musical talent and innovative performance and display artists with widespread notoriety that had over 80,000 people in attendance in 2012.

SUPERCRAWL is an annual event that celebrates the diversity of Hamilton’s James Street North district, our multi-disciplinary arts community, and the incredible spark that results with our unique mix of cultures, businesses and creative people.This year’s fifth anniversary edition will again take place over two days: Friday, September 13th and Saturday, September 14th.

In 2009, SUPERCRAWL was initiated by a team of artists and community builders who wanted to see the monthly event on James Street North, the ART CRAWL, expand to include music in a greater way, and to take full advantage of an entire street of cultural experiences. This first edition of the festival won the “Best Small Festival of the Year Award” at the 2009 Hamilton Tourism Awards, while the second edition won “Best Medium Festival of the Year Award” in 2010, as well as a 2010 Hamilton Music Award as the “Musical Event Of The Year”. Last year’s edition won “Musical Event Of The Year By People’s Choice” at the 2011 Hamilton Music Awards, while organizers Tim Potocic and Dane Pedersen were both awarded 2012 Tourism Hamilton Awards for their work on the festival.
