Toronto’s own Keys N’ Krates rocked the Danforth Music Hall with an incredible sound that left fans wanting more.

Right in the midst of the holidays, the annual winter music festival, Solaris spanned two nights this past weekend. The Enercare Centre at the Exhibition was packed with young people, filling the air with electric dancing, good vibes, and lots of love for the heavy bass drops.

This Civic Holiday weekend featured another solid lineup at this year’s VELD Music Festival 2015 with big acts like Steve Aoki, A$AP Rocky, Nicky Romero, Kaskade and the return of Deadmau5, as one of the producers alongside LiveNation and INK Entertainment.

Sometimes rain happens. And it did happen the weekend of June 27th and 28th at Echo Beach on the Ontario Place grounds. So while everyone was disappointed that Saturday of the annual 2-day Digital Dreams music festival was completely cancelled due to safety concerns from the wind and non-stop rain on Saturday, Day 2 was slightly better weather but just enough to keep the show going.

As we mentioned in our Top Upcoming Summer Music Festivals, it was worth the short trip to Kitchener for Day 2 on a cold rainy day to see Benny Benassi and Diplo on Sunday, May 31st, 2015 for the first Ever After Fest.

The rain was unrelenting throughout most of the day and EDM fans wore ponchos and rain boots yet were in good spirits as young, hardcore music fans are.
