Echo Beach Concert Venue

Echo Beach to become Toronto's newest concert venue

Here's some exciting news that's been made mostly official. Ontario Place is getting another outdoor concert venue. Named Echo Beach — presumably after the song by Martha and the Muffins — its first action will be when Robyn comes to town on June 3rd.

Although the details are pretty scarce right now, EYE Weekly's reports that the venue is the work of Live Nation and will have a capacity of about 4,000. Given the layout near the Molson Amphitheatre, it's likely to be built in the area to the immediate southeast of the current venue. Wherever it ends up, though, it probably won't be a part of the renovation plans for Ontario Place, which is due for a full-scale redesign in the near future. The two month construction time screams of something that'll be mostly temporary.

But who cares? It'll be a nice size for those bands who've outgrown the Kool House and Sound Academy. And it's outdoors! And it's coming soon! A website for the venue is expected to go live later this week.
