The Koop Tent Stage, 5:50-6:35 p.m.


Busty and the Bass is a nine-piece collective of musicians from across North America who met during their first week studying music at McGill University. Originally born out of small Montreal house parties, over the last three years ‘Busty’ has evolved into a tight electrofunk band and become one of Canada’s most vibrant and exciting new bands.

In October 2014, Busty and the Bass competed against hundreds of other bands to win the ‘Rock Your Campus’ competition, the search for Canada’s top university band, sponsored by CBC Music and TD Bank. The group won a $10,000 cash prize, and opened for the Arkells in a sold-out performance in Montreal.

Busty is renowned for their energetic live performances that showcase their musicality, creativity, and camaraderie. Busty performs regularly across Quebec, Ontario, and the northeastern United States, and their brand of powerful original music and innovative covers has won them international praise.
