The StartUp

The StartUp is an industry series at foldA (June 19-22) that introduces live performance professionals to what is happening and possible in the online age.

Through debates, discussions, workshops and keynotes with some of #cdncult’s most exciting creators, we’ll be wrestling with the question: What is live Canadian performance in the digital age?

Registration for The StartUp will open soon. Email if you’re interested in attending. 


foldA’s opening act is Kingston’s own B-RICH!

After reaching more than 10 million hits on YouTube with his viral hit Out For a Rip, a lawsuit with Coca Cola, and the coining of a new Canadian saying, we’re opening foldA with the artists behind one of Canada’s biggest viral videos.
