About Ottawa Explosion Weekend (OXW)
Ottawa Explosion Weekend 2014 will be the fourth edition of this yearly festival. OXW is a celebration of independent music in the punk/garage/hardcore/weirdo vein with a focus on local & canadian bands while still including up and coming bands from the US.

Past performers include Metz, The Men, Mean Jeans, Night Birds, Iron Chic, Bad Sports, Omegas, Nude Beach, Vacation & a bunch more of new and exciting bands from Ottawa, Montreal & Toronto and as far as San Francisco & Hamburg.

The festival is organized by a small group of passionate people and the help of volunteers to pull together this multi day/multi venue affair.
