    Best of the Tiny Fonts is a recurring feature in which our staff handpick the must-see smaller acts at all the major festivals.

    The WayHome Music & Arts Festival is about to launch its second edition this Friday, and already the three-day festival is being hailed as the “Bonnaroo of Canada.” Makes some sense, seeing as it’s co-produced by Roo stakeholder AC Entertainment. But beyond that, most reports from 2015’s inaugural fest – which drew 35,000 attendees to Burl’s Creek Event Grounds (90% of which reportedly camped) in Oro-Medonte, about 90 minutes north of Toronto, Ontario – indicate its growing reputation has just as much to do with the ultra-positive, all-inclusive vibes and stacked lineups.

    This year’s headlining roster provides proof enough of the latter: fest juggernauts LCD Soundsystem finish off Friday, home-country heroes Arcade Fire cap Saturday, and veritable main stage veterans The Killers serve as Sunday’s sonic supper. And just like its Tennessee-based pseudo-predecessor, WayHome boasts badass late-night options (running until 2 a.m.) on the first two nights.

    A few of the lineup’s must-see Tiny Font artists – some that might not be on your radar yet – inhabit those nocturnal time slots, but many of the must-see undercards are scattered across various stages and throughout the weekend. If you’re someone seeking discovery – the only way to fest, really – allow us to guide you through a handful of our Tiny Font top picks.
