All concerts will be in Kailash Mital Theatre in the Loeb Building at Carleton University. The university is served by NCC multi-use paths from the east and west (along the canal), and there is ample bicycle parking near the door. You can also take  OC Transpo's O-Train or bus routes 4 or 7 to the campus. There is also nearby car parking.
