About the Toronto Bicycle Music Festival
The TBMF is a free community festival that takes place in various parks in Toronto’s west end. Audience members power the portable sound system by pedaling stationary bike generators. Both performers and the audience move from venue to venue by bike. This year’s festival is produced with support from the Toronto Arts Council and the Ontario Arts Council.
