Check out free music during Luminato 2012

Dan Mangan

Yes, it’s NXNE and it’s busy — but there’s another music game in town this week too. Luminato 2012 began in Toronto on June 8 and runs until the 16, and music programming is a big part of the festival. As a highlight, a lot of it is free! Acts like Rufus Wainwright and Deltron 3030 have already played, but there’s still plenty to see this weekend.

Here are some suggestions for cool no-cost Luminato activies to check out this weekend in Toronto if you need a break from NXNE or just want to support another of the city’s awesome festivals:
