Get ready, Toronto. After taking the show to Vancouver last year, we're bringing the CBCMusic.ca Festival back to Echo Beach (909 Lake Shore Blvd. West) on Saturday, May 23, 2015.
This year's all-Canadian festival lineup will include Patrick Watson, Bahamas, Coeur de pirate, Jenn Grant, Joel Plaskett Emergency, Tanika Charles, Lindi Ortega, the Strumbellas, Fred Penner, Choir! Choir! Choir! and the winner of our next Searchlight contest.
A true celebration of CBC, the CBCMusic.ca Festival will also include a live edition of CBC Radio One's The Debaters and appearances from Radio 2 hosts including Rich Terfry and Tom Power. And there will be plenty of things to keep the kids busy, too, including Kids’ CBC crafts, activities and entertainment, as well as everyone's favourite talking root vegetable: Mamma Yamma.
General admission tickets are $39.50 (plus FMF and service charges), and free for kids 12 and under (no tickets required for kids, just bring them along!).
