Bud Light Dreams brought the party to Toronto's waterfront this weekend

Tens of thousands of new-school ravers flocked to Ontario Place this weekend for downtown Toronto's favourite annual EDM festival, in case you were wondering where all the glitter came from.

The Bud Light Dreams Music festival (formerly known as 'Digital Dreams') came a bit earlier than usual this year, hitting the city during Pride weekend as opposed to its usual Canada Day slot.

Here are some of highlights from the annual two-day-long, three-stage-big event that took over Ontario Place's East Island on June 23 and 24.
