Are you an insomniac that loves Canadian music and charitable causes? We have just the concert for you.
Organized by Epidemic Music Group and held at the Earl of Whitchurch pub, the concert will start on March 17th and last for 16 full days. Organizers say they must always have an audience of at least ten people for the record to count.
The concert is not without a good cause either: each day will also showcase and raise awareness for a different Canadian charity. A full list of charities can be viewed below.

Day 2 (March 19) - Artscan Circle
Day 3 (March 20) - Fundraiser Benefit for Steffi G

Over 400 acts, all of them Canadian, will perform over the course of the concert. Organizers say a range of genres will be represented, including “rock, pop, country, folk and beyond”.
And given its St. Patrick’s Day start date, the concert will be a perfect spot to recuperate from your hangover. As long as you like loud music when hungover. That’s normal, right?
