Coming together just for the occasion, the theatre collective of Jenna-Lee Hyde, Jules Mercier and Heather Morrison present an interactive and unexpected theatre experience.

Comprised of drummer Billy Tataryn and guitarist Matt Folkerson, the Father Figures have parlayed their tight live performance and promising EP into next level indie rock status.
The Great Mystery is a fantastical event created in collaboration with choreographer Jackie Latendresse of Free Flow Dance and artist Adrian Stimson. The Great Mystery is a live performance intended to fuse contemporary styles and ideas with historical mythology and is an experiment in interactivity with the audience.
We Were Lovers are becoming well known for their melodic pop music infusing electro, rock and disco elements. The band has just returned from a major Canadian & US tour and will bring their energetic live show to the LUGO stage. Befriend them on Facebook!
Perhaps best known in Saskatoon for her cross-stich portraits of Canadian artists and her witty online art gossip generator, Megan has also produced crossword puzzles for indie art publications, No More Potlucks and Front Magazine. She has developed a large wall-mounted crossword puzzle for LUGO partygoers to play with and solve. Clues are cheeky and fun, on the theme of Saskatoon art and the Mendel.
Thank you to 3rd Avenue Signs for sponsoring the installation!
