Big Top Fringe Takes Over Winnipeg, July 13th thru July 24th

Step right up, ladies, gentlemen and Fringers of all ages (and, yes, we really do mean all ages) and get ready to be thrilled, amazed and entertained at Big Top Fringe!  Be prepared to witness 150 of the most fantastical feats of theatrical daring you’ve ever seen onstage – spellbinding dramas, uproarious comedies, musical wonders and the beauty of dance.

The 24th annual Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival is not your ordinary three-ring circus. We have all kinds of theatrical wonders as well as lots of activities for everyone at the Fringe Fairground a.k.a. Old Market Square in Winnipeg’s historic Exchange District. We have tasty treats and beverages, merchant vendors with a variety of wares, and be sure to take in the many musicians, acrobats and jugglers on the MTS Outdoor Stage. And don’t forget to give the little ones a thrill by visiting the free Kids Fringe activities area.

Once again, UMFM is very proud to present some of Winnipeg's finest improv talent, plus 2 super awesome dj's, in 3 must see shows!  Be sure to check out the following, guarenteed to make you laugh...

And as always, UMFM's intrepid theater reporter Justin Olynyk, host of Play It Again (Wednesday nights at 8PM), will be in the middle of the action checking out some of the great plays and telling your all about them here!

Post No Bills!
on June 28,2011 by michael

On July 12th Post No Bills Gallery will launch the first ever outdoor commercial gallery at the 24th annual Winnipeg Fringe Theater Festival. In conjunction with Martha Street Studio, RAW:Gallery of Architecture and Design, and Golden City Fine Art, Post No Bills functions as an on-site commercial gallery to market the work of contemporary Manitoban artists during the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, which runs July 13 – July 25, 2011.

Each year, the Winnipeg Fringe Festival attracts a local and international audience of 85,000 – 90,000. With this project we hope to increase exposure and appreciation of visual art and encourage support of Winnipeg's outstanding visual artists. The gallery will be in the heart of Winnipeg's Exchange District on the corner of Arthur and McDermott, and will be open every day from 10 am till Midnight for the duration of the festival.

Just last month, Winnipeg's art scene earned international praise at the opening of the 'My Winnipeg' show at La Maison Rouge gallery in Paris, France and Macleans Magazine recently voted Winnipeg's art scene number two in Canada. In an effort to inform the city's many residents who are unaware of this phenomenon or where to find local art for sale, this project offers a fresh conduit with a diverse artistic palette as well as a wide range of prices from $20 to $4000.


Work will be shown by over forty artists represented by the associated galleries. Exhibiting artists include: Galen Johnson, Leslie Supnet, Doug Smith, Shaun Morin, The Royal Art Lodge, Noam Gonick, Craig Love, Paul Robles, Guy Maddin, Simon Hughes, Paul Zacharias, Adrian Williams, Ryan Carman, Cyrus Smith, Ian August, David Wityk, Andrew Lodwick, Ben Bonner, Alexis Goertz, Dan Donaldson, Eric LeSage, Les Newman, Suzie Smith, Kristin Nelson, Darren Stebeleski, Micah Lexier, Paul Butler, Justin Ludwar, Krisjanis Katkins-Gorsline, Jessica Evans, Louis Bako, Andrew Valko, Scott Benesiinaabandan, Michael Dumontier, Robert Pasternak, Neil Farber, Keith Wood, Takashi Iwasaki, Melanie Rocan, Tamara Weller, Erica Eyres, Jake Kosciuk, Teresa Braun, Helga Jakobson, Andrea Von Vichert and more. A call for submissions recently posted on The Winnipeg and Manitoba Arts Council bulletins resulted in a response from over 20 additional artists, and submissions will be accepted throughout the festival.

Any assistance you can provide to help promote Post No Bills would be greatly appreciated. Also, much needed nominal sponsorships of $150.00 will be recognized on a donor wall upon entering gallery and on all promotional materials.

We thank you for your time and consideration.

Open House Update!
on June 9,2011 by jared

So you've got just a few days left to come down and check out our new digs!  We'll be going strong until Saturday at 11PM, so we hope you'll come down and visit us.  Once of the big changes to the operations is the grand opening of our brand new live recording room.  We've had a couple of great acts in during the week to help us christen the studio, and just in case you missed the broadcasts, here's a little taste of what's been going on!

Nova - Ex-Con (smog cover)

Mecca Normal - Malachi

We're super fired up about the new live studio and look forward to recording bands of all manner over in the coming days, weeks and months!

Come Check Out Our New House!
on May 29,2011 by jared

Over the past several months, loyal listeners have probably heard UMFM show hosts discussing the state of renovations at the station and some of the difficulties encountered during that time. But more recently, our hosts have taken to sharing how pleased they are with the new digs. Now's your chance to see what they've been talking about. UMFM is offering our wonderful listeners the chance to come down to the station between Sunday June 5 and Saturday June 11, 2011 for our Open House Week. This is your opportunity to see how the great radio you tune in for is actually made, a chance to meet the host of your favourite show and tour our renovated space.

UMFM hosts are offering the listening audience a peek behind the curtain (or the microphone) and a chance to sit in on a live broadcast of their radio show. If you've always wondered just who it is that's playing the tunes you dig, or talking about the issues that affect you, this is your chance to meet the people behind the voices that make the great programming on UMFM's airwaves. The 3 general dates that are open to the public are as follows, so be sure to join us for some refreshments and a tour of our new digs!

  • Monday, June 6th from 2PM until 5PM
  • Wednesday, June 8th from 2PM until 5PM
  • Saturday, June 11th from 1PM until 4PM

More details will follow in the coming weeks, but stay tuned to UMFM 101.5 and visit this website regularly for information on special guests, live performances and prizes that will only be available to our listeners during our Open House events. So far, in terms of special shows, here's what we've got confirmed, all of this is of course subject to change.

And if you follow a particular show via their blog, Twitter or Facebook pages, keep your eyes peeled for special annoucements from the hosts who are planning all sorts of interesting programming for the week of Sunday June 5 to Sunday June 11, 2011.
