The West End Cultural Centre, Real Love Winnipeg and our partners across 5 other prairie cities are disappointed to announce that due to the ongoing surge of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 across the country, Winterruption WPG 2022 will have to be postponed. The event was supposed to take place January 25-30, 2022 in venues around Winnipeg, however it is incumbent on us to prioritize the safety of performers, attendees, staff, and volunteers. Therefore, new dates will be announced as soon as they are finalized.
This year’s Winterruption event was set to feature more than 50 local and Canadian performers with headliners at the WECC including Rose Cousins, TEKE::TEKE, The Sadies, Priyanka, The Lytics, and TOPS. Along with these shows, we had artists scheduled to perform at the Good Will Social Club, X-Cues Café & Lounge, Park Theatre, the Handsome Daughter, and daytime shows out in the community. All of our headliners are being rescheduled in coordination with our partner events in Regina, Saskatoon, Swift Current, Calgary, and Edmonton, and we will announce an updated schedule for all of the shows as soon as it is completed.
Along with all of this great music, Winterruption was also bringing Winnipeg’s first Tactical Urbanism Conference to the city. The Conference was set to include three days of speakers and discussions with leading figures in the local urbanism community and featured Ivan de la Lonza, the Design, Culture and Bicycle Infrastructure Director for the Environmental Department of Mexico City. It is our hope that Mr. de la Lonza and all the conference participants will still be able to join us when our conference is rescheduled.
Anyone who has purchased tickets for Winterruption shows is welcome to keep them and they will be honoured at the rescheduled dates. If they would prefer a refund on their tickets, they should be in contact with the point of purchase and their request will be processed without question. If a show is unable to be rescheduled, all tickets to the show will be refunded.
The team at Winterruption is incredibly disappointed to have to postpone Winterruption 2022 and we are working hard to reschedule all of the events. We will announce an updated schedule as soon as we have it finalized. Please continue to check our website and social media for updated information.
