River And Sky Mu­sic Fes­ti­val

This three- day fes­ti­val is a bit of a hike from down­town T.O., but for your time (roughly four and a half hours on the road), you’re re­warded with the in­cred­i­bly scenic north­ern On­tario set­ting of the Stur­geon River and some of the best mu­sic from across the coun­try. Van­cou­ver psych-rock­ers Pink Moun­tain­tops, Wel­land clas­sic coun­try star Daniel Ro­mano, Toronto psych- coun­try out­fit the High­est Or­der and Mon­treal ex­per­i­men­tal pop group the Bes­nard Lakes are high­lights. July 18 to 20. 3636 Hwy 539, Field. Week­end pass $125. riverand­sky.ca.

Wolfe Is­land Mu­sic Fes­ti­val

When a week­end fest boasts two of Canada’s finest em­cees ( Shad and k- os) per­form­ing in sil­hou­ette against the set­ting sun on Lake On­tario, 362 kilo­me­tres re­ally isn’t that far to travel. Well, we can’t guar­an­tee the sun­set or the sil­hou­ette, but that’s how we pic­ture Wolfe Is­land Mu­sic Fes­ti­val out­side of Kingston. Elec­tro-pop band Young Galaxy, in­aptly named Toronto in­die rock­ers Ru­ral Al­berta Ad­van­tage and Con­stan­tines-front­man- gone-solo Bry Webb help round out the stacked bill. Au­gust 8 and 9. $ 45-$125, week­end pass $100. wolfeis­land­mu­sicfes­ti­val.com.
