The 2022 edition of Supercrawl will feature upwards of 40 musical acts along with its customary array of visual and performance artists.

“The arts sustained a lot of people through a challenging couple of years, and that connection was a lifeline for many of us, so it’s amazing to be able to celebrate artists again in this way — and to do so together, in person,” Supercrawl’s festival director Tim Potocic said in a lineup reveal event on Thursday.

Hamilton’s biggest arts and music festival has not run since 2019 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Instead, the event was “re-scoped” with a slate of special events that ran into early 2021, including a series of concerts held on top of the York Boulevard parkade in late September of 2020.

In recent years prior to COVID-19, Supercrawl has drawn somewhere in the neighbourhood of 250,000 visitors to James Street North during its run.
