“Toronto, out of all of them, is probably the most special to me, because as a kid, I grew up in Buffalo, and I’d go to shows in Toronto. I’d go to Canada all the time. That’s the one, out of all the cities, I’m excited about all of them obviously, but Toronto’s a special one for me.” told festival organizer Mike Petryshyn to Consequence of Sound last September.

The festival has grown since it’s inception, expanding from Chicago to Philadelphia in 2011.  2012 saw the festival expand to Brooklyn, Toronto and Dallas and this year they will be bringing it to Chicago, Denver and Toronto.

“All the bands on this bill are amazing live!   Iggy and the Stooges, Dinosaur Jr., Piece The Veil, Every Time I Die, Just those 4 bands right there is worth the price of admission, we’re happy to be a part of it.” Said Editor In Chief -  Darrell Shelley
