MoSo unveils initial 2016 line-up, including Buffy Sainte-Marie, Suuns and Jesse Brown

Saskatoon music festival and tech talks event MoSo turns six this year. Hard to believe, but everyone around here seems to be getting older, right?

Not MoSo though. They’re just getting better, and the organizers have put together an extra special lineup for their 2016 edition. In addition to the music festival (which is already pretty impressive), there’s a number of super inspiring speakers for this year’s MoSo Talks Keynote Day.

The initial artist lineup includes:

Buffy Sainte-Marie
Willie Thrasher & Linda Saddleback
Close Talker
Duchess Says
Shotgun Jimmie
The Pack AD
The Burning Hell
Man Meat
The Garrys
Me the Guts
Homo Monstrous
Young Benjamins

The confirmed speaker lineup includes:

Buffy Sainte-Marie
Saadia Muzaffar (TechGirls Canada)
Terry O’Reilly (CBC radio host of Under the Influence)
Lisa Charleyboy (Urban Native Magazine)
Jesse Brown (Canadaland)
Jessica Walsh (Sagmeister & Walsh)
Dioselin Gonzales (Unity Labs)
Sam Sheffer (Mashable)

Note that the first 150 Keynote Day purchasers receive a complimentary pass to Buffy Sainte-Marie, which ends April 4. So you might want to jump on that and not risk the endless heartbreak of missing out on summer this year. Just saying.

The festival takes place at a number of venues around Saskatoon and runs from June 16 to 18. Find full festival information over at MoSo’s official website.
