The City is pleased to present this year's Live on the Waterfront summer concert line-up, presented by Ontario Power Generation. The festival will take place every Wednesday from July 19 to Aug. 23, from 6 to 9 pm, at the Festival Area in Marina Park.

This year’s Live on the Waterfront concert series boasts an array of talented performers, including Juno Award winners and nominees, Prism Award winners, and exceptional local talent.

"We can't wait for the stage to come alive this summer with amazing local and Canadian talent,” said Louisa Costanzo, Supervisor – Cultural Development, Community Programming & Events. “The two-day summer send-off will be a fantastic way to end the season. We look forward to seeing the community come out Wednesday evenings."

New this year, the festival will include a summer send-off with two back-to-back nights: Wednesday, Aug. 30 and Thursday, Aug. 31 – with the latter featuring a firework show.
