ABOUT WAVELENGTH Every year, Wavelength celebrates its birthday with a multi-night music festival, taking place at a different venue each night. In 2010, Wavelength turned 10 and threw the hugely successful Wavelength 500 Festival, which marked its 500th show and also the epic conclusion of its weekly Sunday night series. In the two years since then, Wavelength has successfully transformed its series into a monthly, mobile arts platform exploring new performance spaces beyond the traditional club circuit.
