Rock the Coliseum is an annual music festival that takes place in Mississauga, ON. Since its inauguration in 2005, RTC has been promoting, supporting, and celebrating all aspects of the Mississauga indie music scene and aims to bring local Canadian talent to the spotlight.
Rock the Coliseum is a part of the Independent Music Initiative and the Canadian Community Arts initiative. These two not-for-profit organizations are based in Mississauga and help foster a community for local, independent music and arts of all kinds.

The Damn Truth
I’ve been involved in music my whole life and have developed a passion for helping out or working in the industry any way I can. I’m interested in helping talented artists gain the recognition they deserve in this crazy business. I am currently studying Communication Studies at York University in Toronto, and working at a local theatre doing marketing and communications, as well as helping out a local festival called Rock the Coliseum. Indie, alt-rock/pop, and metal are my favourites but I’m open to all music genres! If I’m not at a show, I’m doing yoga, grabbing coffee, or looking for some craft beer.
