Alianait Arts Festival (June 29 – July 2, Iqaluit)
“Alianait Arts Festival, Nunavut’s largest circumpolar arts event, will showcase an exciting lineup of performers, including many Inuit and Indigenous artists.
The 2018 line-up includes Greenland’s hottest rock band Nanook. Maori trio Māma Mihirangi & the Mareikura. Dazzling and soulful Juno-nominee Cris Derksen will also be on the stage, along with multiple award-winning indigenous artists Leela Gilday and Twin Flames. Australian powerhouse duo This Way North and Newfoundland’s own Séan McCann are joining Alianait this year. Banjo-picking singer-songwriter Old Man Luedecke, Igloolik’s rising star Lazarus Qattalik and Arviat’s Agaaqtoq will make encore appearances this year as well.
The festival will once again include a collaboration featuring Indigenous artists from around the world, and this year’s theme Dreams, will be directed by Sylvia Cloutier.”
