The CBC Music Festival came to Toronto’s TD Echo Beach on May 28th and featured a stellar stage for Canadian acts with Hey Rosetta! as headliners. Canadian Beats was there to capture all the excitement with this photo review and another in depth look at the festival.
The bands that performed were Hey Rosetta, The New Pornographers, Alvvays, Whitehorse, Maestro, Tanya Tagaq and Tokyo Police Club on the main stage. Desiree Dawson (CBC Searchlight winner), Zaki Abraham, Ria Mae, Terra Lightfoot and the Franklin Electric performed on the the second stage.
As in years past this was a great festival to attend and the performances were some of the best that Canada has to offer. Let’s look forward to an even more incredible Festival for 2017!

Stay tuned to Canadian Beats for more photos, and a full review of the festival done by Cassandra Popescu.
I shoot live music performances and concerts. I love the excitement of entering a venue, knowing that I’ll be photographing a concert and enjoying the energy of the crowd. There’s nothing like being in a venue and looking at the expressions on the faces of people who are all transfixed by the talent onstage. I shoot about 120 shows each year, averaging 2 bands per show, as well as several all-day and weekend festivals in and around Southern Ontario. From the large venues to very small ones, bright lights or barely lit stages, I hope that my photos capture the enjoyment the artists have in doing what they love to do.
