Spiders: Fear & Fascination


The House of Haunt
A psychobilly band that was formed in 2012, and is based in Toronto. They have an emphasis on creating a largely theatrical act with stage props, actors, costumes, lighting effects, and audience participation! 

DJ Craig Dominic
His signature 'Jack of all trades' style has given a new perspective on the DJ scene blending top 40, urban, house & more into one cohesive experience, like few others can.

Johnny B. Goode
Known as "The Official DJ of the Afterparty" in the Toronto burlesque scene, you'll find it's physically impossible not to dance while Johnny is spinning!

Scarlett LaFlamme Burlesque: Monsters
We are continually fascinated with the monstrous, whether it comes in fantastical or human form. Both mythological monsters and pop-culture villains hold an element of the seductive for audiences, drawing us in even as we fear or hate them. Come let yourself be seduced by the monstrous as some of Toronto's top burlesque artists strut the delicious line between scary and sexy! Starring: Scarlett LaFlamme, El Toro, Dixie Rect, Ivory, Delicia Pastiche, and Dainty Smith.

DJ Intrinity 
Toronto’s own Intrinity has solidified himself as one of Canada’s premier open-format DJs.

Rayn Magic
One of Toronto's most celebrated and sought after magicians. With a number of accolades and awards under his belt, this sleight-of-hand artist has travelled the country spreading magic and excitement. His brand of magic infuses street style culture with mind-numbing visual effects. He's dangerous with a deck of cards!
