EDGEFEST INFORMATION:

Edgefest is an outdoor rock concert that largely promotes Canadian rock music.  This Canadian rock festival has been an annual festival since 1987.  It all began thanks to a Toronto radio station (102.1 the Edge) as a thank-you gesture to listeners.  They cleverly scheduled Edgefest on a date that commemorated both the radio station's birthday and the coinciding Canada day.  In 1993, the rock concert festival was supposed to be held at Molson Park in Barrie, but the park did not want to share their park with Edgefest - so the festival up and packed to relocate to the old Ontario Place Forum.  It was then that the festival was first called "Edgefest," a name that has stuck with the festival ever since.

Organizers were worried that no one would want to drive from Toronto to Barrie for the inaugural Edgefest that took place on July 1, 1987; but they had no other choice of venue.  Tickets sold for only $1.02 per ticket!  The inaugural Edgefest ended up being a success with 25,000 attendees.  1988 was the first year Edgefest sold out and brought over 32,000 people to Molson Park.  From 1997-1999 Edgefest organizers put the whole festival on the road and was held across Canada with four dates in Eastern Canada and four in Western Canada.  Many bands like Creed, 3 Doors Down, Nickelback, and Sugar Ray played a side stage at Edgefest and then went on to be major stars.  Buy your Edgefest tickets at TicketCity.com today!
