The Lu­mi­nato Fes­ti­val’s man­date is to gather the best artists from around the world and from inside our own city in an orgy of cre­ation. The fest doesn’t al­ways suc­ceed in at­tract­ing the great­est stars – last year’s Joni Mitchell ap­pear­ance not­with­stand­ing – but it can be counted on to fea­ture some very in­trigu­ing fig­ures.

To give just a few ex­am­ples, Is­abella Ros­sellini dons var­i­ous an­i­mal cos­tumes for her erotic stage show Green Porno Live (June 6 to 8) and gives an artist talk on the fi­nal day. Mer­cu­rial avant-garde visual artist Matthew Barney talks with cu­ra­tor Kitty Scott about his AGO show Draw­ing Re­straint on June 7, and Canuck icon Buffy Sainte- Marie hits the stage June 10.

This year’s out­door Lit­er­ary Pic­nic on June 15 boasts 45 writ­ers and com­mit­ment to un­cover un­seen Toronto. A rain­storm flooded out last year’s pic­nic, but that won’t hap­pen again – this year’s edi­tion has an al­ter­nate venue in case of bad weather. lu­mi­natofes­ti­val.com.
