Festival headliners perform on the main outdoor stage to a crowd of joyous fans at these city-supported events. Join us on Friday, June 21 for an evening of epic performances by instrumental post-rockers Explosions in The Sky and Montreal's dreamy psych-rockers The Besnard Lakes plus more acts to be announced.
