The 2016 CBC Music Festival is coming and it’s going to be better than ever.
We’re bringing a stellar lineup to Echo Beach in Toronto on Saturday, May 28. General admission tickets are available for $39.50 (plus FMF and service charges) and, once again, kids 12 and under are free.
The all-Canadian lineup includes Hey Rosetta!, Tanya Tagaq, Whitehorse, Maestro, Zaki Ibrahim, the Franklin Electric, Charlotte Cardin, Rich Terfry and CBC Music's 2016 Searchlight winner.
In addition to a full day of great music we'll also have a craft and flea market for shopping and an expanded Food Truck Fair that will provide a wide variety of unique and delicious dining. Families will be able to enjoy the all-new Kids' CBC Zone, offering crafts, activities and entertainment throughout the day.
