The Streets Ahead Festival, formerly known as Northern Breed, is a three-day music festival in Ottawa focused on the future, rather than dwelling on the past. Each edition donates proceeds to an important cause in the community, whether it be aiding victims of abuse, the LGBTQ+ community, Children’s hospitals, removing stigma against mental illness, or more. This year’s edition focused on supporting Harmony House, the only second-stage women’s shelter in the city.
Ev was able to attend and capture the first night of the festival which saw DOXX (Ottawa), Viva Non (Winnipeg), Violent State (Montreal), Bug Bites (Ottawa) and Moratorium (Ottawa) rip up the stage at Deckuf on a cold Friday night. Check out their shots below.
