CBC Music Fest 2015

20 sunny photos of the 3rd annual CBC Music Fest

The CBC Music Festival returned to Toronto after a brief trip to Vancouver in 2014, bringing with it a line-up of Canadian artists pulled straight from the Radio 3 playlists. The largely laid-back acts dictated the relaxed, lounging-on-the-lawn vibe for the day.

Sure, Shad had people puttin' their palms to the ceilin', and The Strumbellas had everyone stomping (although lost slightly on the sandy ground), but Bahamas sweet crooning and Patrick Watson's piano magic were more the order of the day as people chilled out with food truck snacks and took in the summery scene.

Check out all the action from the day in this photo gallery.
