SQUID LID began in 2009 as an underground rave act in Toronto’s largest club scene, featuring DJ Jonah K and composer Zirco Fisher. Deep bass beats with whimsical circus melodies is our sound while we perform in signature backlight creature costumes.

“The biggest thrills of the night.”
Circus, Gothic, Aerial Silks.
SQUID LID is a Dark Electro-Pop spectacle for the everyday explorer. This deep sea experience takes audiences (lovingly called Tentacles) on an eerie journey through the strange and unusual world that is Squid Lid.
A typical show is an hour lone performance that includes costumes, music and dance. We require UV lighting.
Our Homebase is Toronto, but we may consider travelling to your location depending on your budget. Squid Lid has made appearances at SXSW (Austin TX), NXNE (Toronto), Astral Harvest Festival (AB), Aftermath Festival (Toronto), Eclipse Festival (QC), Fan Expo (Toronto), and has toured across Canada, the US, & Europe.
