Edgefest has been a summer festival tradition in Toronto for over 25 years and has featured hundreds of Canadian and International major label and independent acts.  Live Nation and 102.1 the Edge brings Toronto music fans one of the most anticipated music events of the summer with the three-day Edgefest Summer Concert Series at TD Echo Beach.

Tickets for the Edgefest Summer Concert Series will go on sale Friday, April 17 @ 10am at www.livenation.com and www.ticketmaster.ca.  Edge listeners will have access to the 102.1 the Edge Mega Ticket (includes tickets to all three shows) pre-sale starting Wednesday, April 15 @ 10 a.m. Fans can check out www.edge.ca for more details.

Each concert date on the Edgefest Summer Concert Series will feature live performances on two stages along with a wide variety of food and beverage vendors. TD Echo Beach is located on the East Island of Ontario Place, just east of the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre. TD Echo Beach features a real sand beach and offers guests a spectacular view of the downtown Toronto skyline. It is a general admission venue with no reserved seating and allows fans to get up-close-and-personal to their favourite bands. TD Echo Beach made a splash with critics and concert-goers alike during its inaugural season in 2011.
