NEW TORONTO MUSIC FESTIVAL!

May 7, 2015

… Well, kind of. Whether you like it or not, the lovely city of Toronto is hosting the Pan-Am Games this year, and if you're a sports fan — that’s probably some pretty fantastic news. For those of us to prefer to catch a live gig instead of a live game, there’s something that Torontonian music fans can now look forward to this summer too.

 

The Pan-Am Games just announced their own mini-festival, appropriately titled “Panamania”, which will take place during the games. The celebratory festival is essentially multiple events around the city taking place for a total of 23 days, and includes events such as nightly fireworks and jumbo screens for live coverage.

 

Best of all? 130 bands that have been just announced to be part of the celebrations, and there are some pretty big names on the docket. Performers include The Flaming Lips, Chromeo, Death From Above 1979, Jann Arden, The Roots, Joel Plaskett Emergency, Janelle Monáe, A Tribe Called Red, and many others will all play Nathan Phillips Square this summer.

 

Even better than that? It’s all free.

 

Check out the full list of the performances below!
