After a hiatus in 2010 Edgefest returned to Downsview Park last weekend. This is the first DRY Edgefest we have covered, as both the 2008 and 2009 Edgefests were mudfests after experiencing torrential rain. For those of you who attended the 2008 or 2009 festivals, refresh your memory with our coverage HERE. This year the weather was perfect and the bands – with headliners Rise Against following sets by A Perfect Circle, The Weakerthans, Tokyo Police Club, Arkells, and The Reason – were loud. Some photos of the bands and the crowds, above.
There has been some interest in seeing more shots from the Canada Day Tragically Hip Concert at Downsview Park so we thought we would post a few photos of the many (and very animated) faces of lead singer Gord Downie.
We have been covering Canada Day events at Downsview Park for the past four years and each year they come up with something a little different. This year the park was host to a concert featuring Buck 65, Hey Rosetta, Broken Social Scene, Weezer and headliner, The Tragically Hip. Above are some photos from the day.
Kind of makes you wonder what they are going to come up with NEXT year…
