There will also be kids programming at the festival and a variety of smaller stages for up-and-coming Canadian artists to showcase their talents.
Tickets go on sale Friday at livenation.ca for the public, however, a special presale begins on Thursday at 10 a.m. for American Express cardholders.
Hi, my name is Max. I’m a journalism student currently on placement here at Canadian Beats. I grew up in the GTA, but I’ve been around Ontario a little bit for school in the past few years. I think in a lot of ways the landscape of Canadian music is partially shaped by the journalists who choose to dedicate their time to giving it exposure. By promoting and contributing to a healthy media environment for Canadian artists, journalists contribute in their own way to keeping a strong Canadian music identity alive. I’m excited to hopefully be a small part of that contribution over the next few weeks.
