The 2019 Monstercat Compound is just a few weeks away.
The annual block party, entering its third year, is hosted by one of Canada’s coolest independent labels, bringing together music, gaming, merch, beer gardens, and music education.
Not to mention, plenty of art installations, games, and food trucks.
The community celebration is expected to bring in thousands of visitors and will take over Railtown on Saturday, August 24.
