As the music capital of Canada (in our opinion!), Toronto plays host to some of the best music festivals and talent in the world - and we figure, what better way to spend a summer? So dig out your fanny packs and get ready to make some sweaty memories with the hottest electronic festivals of the summer!


First on our list is Veld, which takes place in the beautiful Downsview Park between August 4th and 5th. It features 30 international hip-hop and dance music artists like DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, Marshmello, and Lil Yachty. Veld is in its 7th consecutive year and is always a hit with the locals. There are plenty of stages and tons of room to jump around at the outdoor venue – and don’t forget to hit up the delicious food trucks! If you’re looking for some hardcore fun, Veld is one you won’t want to miss. 


Later in the month, grab tickets (they are limited, so don’t wait!) to the sixth annual Electric Island summer concert series! It runs for one day only in August - the 11th, to be exact, and then reappears on September 2nd and 3rd. Although it has a smaller lineup with names you may not recognize as much, it’s a small-scale venue with large-scale talent - just read the reviews if you don’t believe us! It also takes place on Toronto Island, so it’s an adventure even before the party starts! The festival is expertly curated - amazing artists, fun pop-up shops, food trucks, and refreshing drinks to quench your thirst. The festival is even involved in their own ‘leave no trace’ initiative! The idea with garbage is to pack it in, pack it out, and everyone goes home with great memories and zero guilt.


Last, but certainly not least is Camp Wavelength! This is a festival unlike any you’ve ever been to before - on August 18th and 19th, indulge in fresh new musical artists and discover the visual art and activities between 1 and 11 pm over both days! Camp Wavelength will take place beautiful green space in the Garrison Common area at the Fort York Historic site, making it feel like a getaway within the bustling city. It lives up to its camp-like feel since the event is intimate due to the small space, the fun lasts all day, and wraps up with more music and a campfire! It’s also open to children, who get in free under the age of 12.
After all the festivities, it’s always nice to come back to relax in our steam-filled hot tub, and then collapse in our ultra-soft beds, so you’re ready to tackle whatever adventures tomorrow holds. At the end of your trip, we offer a free on-demand shuttle to and from the airport, of which we are located conveniently close, so you won’t have to worry about missing your flight. Book with us today to have the best trip to Toronto you’ve ever had!
