The Toronto festival will now take place at 99 Sudbury, instead of Tower Automotive as originally planed.
Toronto's Foundry festival has undergone a last-minute venue change.
The three weekend-long festival—which starts tonight, and features Shed, Skudge, Four Tet, Purity Ring and DJ Harvey among others—was originally set to take place at the historic Tower Automotive warehouse, specially renovated and prepared for Foundry. It'll now happen at the 99 Sudbury venue instead, after a "technicality in the zoning by-laws" allowed the city to deny their legal occupancy permit at the 11th hour, according to a statement released by promoters Mansion.
The crew have used 99 Sudbury for their own shows in the past. All tickets sold so far will be honoured at the door, and the programming will go forth as scheduled.
RA is hosting its own night during the last weekend of Foundry. Check the details of that here.
