Welcome to the annual Canadian Summer Festival Guide powered by Miller Genuine Draft – a comprehensive source for all upcoming summer festivals this season geared toward the Canadian electronic dance music fan. This year EDM Canada features 26 festivals from coast to coast that leaves many options for Canadian music lovers to choose from. Some of these festivals take place in a major urban area like Toronto, but if you want to get out from the city and hang out in nature while enjoying your favourite music – there are plenty of opportunities.
Festival culture is catching up in Canada as festivals has been a staple in places like the U.K. for many years. It's a great way to check out your favourite artists as well as discover brand new ones, thanks to ever increasing lineups and stage choices. Festivals are an experience, and for 2-3 days, attendees form a temporary community of like minded people in environments that lure you away from real life and invite you to let go and be in the moment.
In this guide you will be presented with every festival listed in chronological order, a case made for why you should go, and a link to the actual festival listing with full ticket information. So without further delay, I invite you to dig into this guide and make your summer festival plans!
