On days with weather like today, I look to my summer concert schedule to make me feel warm and sunny on the inside. This week the Edge have announced the lineup for Edgefest ’13 at Downsview Park:
I didn’t get the chance to go last year, but in 2011 I had a great time with the Arkells, The Sheepdogs, Hollerado, and The Weakerthans. There are some really great bands on the lineup, including headliners The Lumineers (200 times better than last year’s headliners, Billy Talent, IMO.)
In a strange move, organizers have changed the weekend date to a Wednesday, which means your ticket also comes with one less vacation day at work.
The full lineup for 2013:
Band of Horses
What you can expect: two stages of live music all day, great food vendors, a licensed venue (no more beer tents), a bit of an inconvenient commute, but a great day in the sun with live music and your best friends. Concerts like Edgefest define summer in the city for me!
