Live Music

Think Canada’s live music scene is all about big city clubs and concerts? Think again. The Heart of Ontario celebrates song with a symphony of festivals, concerts and shows guaranteed to entertain music fans of all persuasions.

music festivals 

Hamilton hosts several must- do music festivals including Supercrawl, Ontario's 2015 Tourism Event of the Year and a weekend-long extravaganza spanning more than a dozen city blocks. The city is also home to the Brott Music Festival, and Festival of Friends. The eclectic Burlington Sound of Music Festival takes over Burlington's Downtown and Waterfront for nine days in June, and in September, the Brantford International Jazz Festival has four stages of world-class traditional jazz, swing, Dixieland and Spanish Afro-Cuban grooves.
