    I live in the States so I have no idea. Down here we have Vans Warped Tour, Coachella, Banaroo, Lalapalooza, stuff like that. Also big EDM festivals like EDC, Sonic Bloom, and Electric Forest. Also Riot Fest for more punk rock and a bunch more. What kind of cool stuff is up in Canada?

    There's the exhibitions (Red River Exhibition in Winnipeg, K-Days in Edmonton, Calgary Stampede in Calgary, etc) usually have concerts.

    Toronto or nearby seemingly has a different festival every weekend in the summer.

    Wayhome
    NXNE
    CMW
    Time
    TURF
    Bestival
    Ottawa Blues Fest (not nearby but programming is good)

    and lots of cool smaller festivals like Electric Eclectics, Camp Wavelength, Strangewaves. So many more I'm forgetting. I'm a concert promoter so this is kind of nuts that I can't list more off the top of my head, but I'm on leave right now so I'll chalk it up to that.

    Squamish Fest is Canada's equivalent to Coachella... Sucks that it was cancelled. Veldt is good too, that is geared more towards EDM.
