Posted by Ryan Ayukawa / July 4, 2015

twimfestEven as Toronto has exploded with music festivals this year, it's a tough game for independent artists to benefit from the many new, big ticket events taking place here. NXNE isn't particularly kind to up and coming musicians, and massive newcomers like WayHome are all about offering as much star power as possible.

The top concerts in Toronto for July 2015

Posted by Shazia Khan / July 1, 2015

toronto concerts julyThe top Toronto concerts for July are full of the radio-friendly and stadium-filling, perhaps to counterbalance June's heavily indie festival onslaught. But don't think for one second that those summer fests are on the wain: Electric Island, Edgefest, Afrofest, Warped Tour, and Beaches Jazz Fest are just some of what's planned for this month.

Even other kinds of festivals are pulling in notable bands for live entertainment - Toronto's Festival of Beer has quite the eclectic lineup going, for example, with Naughty by Nature one night, then 54-40 the next (but only the latter is already sold out, which makes me question your priorities, Toronto).

Rain and mud didn't spoil the fun at Digital Dreams

Posted by Jesse Milns / June 29, 2015

digital dreamsRain almost killed Digital Dreams this year, but somehow everyone seemed to band together to save what could have been a miserable affair. Organizers infuriated many festival-goers with a late cancellation of the first day of the festival citing safety concerns, while those who made it out on Sunday knew they were going to get soaked.

Lest you doubt the spirit of EDM fans, the crowd showed a hell of a lot of resilience in the face of the damp and mucky conditions. People worse plastic bags, danced in the rain, and generally pretended not to be bothered by the mud and puddles. By the time Zedd closed out the festival, you wouldn't have known what a mess it had all been.

Check out all the rainy action in this photo gallery of Digital Dreams 2015.
