About Tegan & Sara

Canadian twins Tegan & Sara are a singing duo that have made waves in the indie pop scene for two decades. They’ve released eight studio albums since 1995, including this year’s Love You to Death, which started them on another global tour. They’re big fans of Snapchat, which mainly consists of Tegan snapping Sara while she’s not looking, using her bitmoji to heckle her twin. They also set up geofilters for their fans to use while snapping at their shows. If you’re there, you might even get caught in one of their live snaps, otherwise you can join in the fun with their hundreds of thousands of followers on social media. Not content to just be iconic musicians, Tegan & Sara also use their reach to advocate for the LGBTQ+ community, launching the Tegan and Sara Foundation this year, an LGBTQ charity for women and girls.
