The official countdown to summer is almost here, which means it’s almost time to enjoy outdoor concerts at Toronto’s Budweiser Stage.

In its inaugural year, Budweiser Stage opened its doors to over 40 musical acts, and a ton of new vendors like Ontario’s famous Webers Burgers.

This year, Budweiser Stage is kicking off another chart-topping summer filled with an endless onslaught of outdoor music gatherings.

This summer’s line-up isn’t just going to be big, it’s going to be the largest line-up in the venue’s history with nearly 60 shows within a variety of genres.

Music lovers can look forward to performances from Kendrick Lamar, Keith Urban, Ms. Lauryn Hill, and Arcade Fire.

It all starts with Budweiser Stage Opening Night, taking place on May 24, featuring Toronto’s very own Broken Social Scene, and Portugal the Man.

Getting excited? Just wait, it get’s better.
