“LUGO is a torrid tryst — a one-night celebration of Saskatoon’s vibrant cultural scene,” says Troy Gronsdahl, programmer at the Gallery and coordinator of LUGO.
“This year’s event channels the wonder and imagination arising when art and science converge,” Gronsdahl says. “The eclectic roster of artists includes psych rock outfit Powder Blue, independent theatre, and a provocative and humorous burlesque performance by Kelly Van Damme. A trio of DJs — The Gaff, Charly Hustle and Mr. Fudge — will be flipping records to keep the crowd dancing into the wee hours.”
In addition to stimulating visuals and interactive art, LUGO features offerings from some of the city’s great eateries, including Sushiro, Duck Duck Goose, The Hollows, Congress Beer House, and Calories.
Now in its fifth year, the fundraiser is hitting its stride, with new sponsors coming on board. PotashCorp is the title sponsor of LUGO 2014, SaskEnergy is a major contributor, and Cherry Insurance and Tourism Saskatoon are providing additional support.
