In an unconventional production with limited capacity, Feist invites the audience to reclaim the stage with MULTITUDES, an intimate performance of new songs. Watch the announcement HERE.
The production, developed by Feist with legendary designer Rob Sinclair (David Byrne’s American Utopia, Peter Gabriel, Tame Impala) is an in-the-round performance experienced in custom 18-point D&B Soundscape immersive audio. It is an intimate, radically communal, and topsy-turvy concert that muddies the roles between audience and performer. It’s formulated to bring people together as they re-emerge from lockdown while providing an outlet for connection between artist, art, and community.
Conceived during and in response to a pandemic period when stages had to remain empty and communal joy was interrupted, MULTITUDES offers a reclaiming of the stage to be performed surrounded by her audience. Featuring all new music written and performed by Feist, accompanied by Todd Dahlhoff and Amir Yaghmai, the multi-Grammy nominee welcomes audiences to sit back and watch, or raise their voices in collective anonymity. Anything goes.
MULTITUDES is a co-production of TO Live and International Summer Festival Kampnagel, and premieres as a week-long residency at this year’s Kampnagel Festival in Hamburg, Germany with a subsequent residency in Eindhoven and more to be scheduled in North America.

Widely recognized as one of the most compelling vocalists and songwriters in her genre, Leslie Feist is an 11-time Juno Award-winning solo artist and founding member of Broken Social Scene. Following the breakout success of her sophomore album Let It Die, she went on to achieve international acclaim with 2007’s The Reminder: a gold-certified release that landed on best-of-the-year lists from outlets like Pitchfork, Spin, and Rolling Stone. Along with earning four Grammy nominations, The Reminder’s success paved the way for Feist’s appearances on such iconic shows as “Saturday Night Live” and “Sesame Street.” Arriving in 2011, her fourth full-length Metals was hailed as the best album of the year by New York Times, and later won the 2012 Polaris Music Prize.
