Published Jun 05, 2013Do you know what the best part about summer is? No, it's not all the scantily clad people around, although that is pretty cool. And no, it's not watching summer blockbusters in an air-conditioned cinema, but that's pretty good, too. It's all the amazing music festivals criss-crossing this great country of ours. To help you make sense of it all, Exclaim! has once again compiled our summer Festival Guide.
We've scoured every province and territory across Canada to find you events in every location imaginable. Whether it's camping out with the Maritimes' metal elite for Nova Scotia's Metal and Hard Rock Music Festival, sampling some indie rock in the heart of the nation's capital at Ottawa's Arboretum Arts Festival, stompin' all night alongside the Calgary Stampede at EDM free-for-all Badlands Music Festival, or swimming next to some jazz heads at the floating stage at the Kaslo Jazz Etc. Summer Music Festival, there's a fest for you. From far and wide, sea to shining sea, the Exclaim! Summer Music Festival Guide is the only place to find complete festival listings nationwide.
