I am so confused and irritated. I look forward to Edgefest every year. For those of you who are not from Toronto Canada, Edgefest is a festival hosted by the radio station 102.1 The Edge; which has been going on since I was two years old (1987). Now I am not here to bash any bands that are on the lineup at all! I am super jealous that I am not in a band and therefore will not give out any hatred.
I am mostly upset due to the fact that this year there are 3 DIFFERENT dates! Not even a full weekend of awesome rock music, but 3 days spanning out over 2 different months!!! What the eff?
Now the great thing is I love at least 2 bands from each of these shows. The shitty thing is WHY DIDN’T YOU COMBINE THIS INTO ONE BIG BANG?!!? ALSO you moved Edgefest from Downsview Park all the way to ECHO BEACH?!?!?! Ugh, Downsview was so easy. Literally walking distance.
Also I must note July 1st is on a TUESDAY, July 18th is on a FRIDAY and August 16th is on a Saturday. So Thankfully Canada day is a holiday, but July 18th isn’t. You made one good choice Edge… Adding a date on an ACTUAL Saturday; which is when Edgefest USUALLY was!
I probably won’t make any of these shows due to the fact that the only one I would go to would be on July 18th, but thanks to my sister being born on that day I am forced to have other plans LOL. Other than that I would love to see OLP live again, but really? I feel like this is gonna be a “reliving the 90’s moment” with the rest of the bands playing. Trust me I like Sloan, I Mother Earth etc, but not worth it. Sorry not sorry 😛
What happened Edge? Edgefest was called edgeFEST due to it being a festival right? This isn’t a festival anymore. You basically made up 3 concerts and decided to give it the old name of Edgefest.
Next year better be worth your 2014 mistakes. I REFUSE to go to METAL Festivals!
Also If i do end up going to one of these damn shows I’ll review it and BASE it off of my Downsview Park/Molson park experiences.
