THE GRINDSTONE SHINES A SPOT-LIGHT ON ALBERTA TALENT
The mural festival has some pretty great partners but when it comes to the dance floor, The Grindstone Theatre is the spot you are looking for. Each weekend of the 2022 festival the Grindstone hosted some of Edmonton's best local DJ and comic talent. Hosting a diverse range of sound selectors the Grindstone kept the party going when the sun went down and has set the stage for the mural festival music curation for years to come.
Shinning a Spotlight
Each year the mural festival and The Grindstone team curate a local list of artist and musician talent to perform at the festival.
