MAY 31st, JUNE 1st & 2nd, 2013
the very first harbour water fest happened back in june 2010 @ shake it dance studio. there were only about fifty of us & it was all close friends. since then it has consistently grown every year into a weird kind of diy punk tradition. folks from as far as europe, australia, mexico & the states have come to halifax for it each year.
I'm really thankful for everyone who has supported the festival since day one (you know who you are, I hope) & of course all of the bands that have played. it's been a really amazing, stressful, & often tear inducing (good & bad) tradition that we've managed to keep going for four years now.
I feel like the fest is more relevant than ever, as once again halifax is at a loss for open, consistent diy all ages punk spaces. please support the bands! & respect the venues. most of all though, respect each other.this fest is an enormous labour of love & I hope everyone realizes it's survival rests on you, the folks who show up & support it.
all shows are five dollars. all shows are all ages.

thanks for your support & I hope that we can make that punk magic shit happen once again. I think we all need a bit of inspiration right now.
see you so so soon.
