Edgefest ’12: Billy Talent and Death from Above 1979 to Headline Main Stage

Mark this down on your calendar, folks – July 14, 2012 at Downsview Park! I am still in awe with the stellar line-up of the 17 confirmed acts. Edgefest ’12 has a little something for everyone…definitely a must-see festival of 2012.

Rocking the main stage will be Billy Talent, Death From Above 1979, Silversun Pickups, The Sheepdogs, Young The Giant, The Dirty Heads, USS and The Pack A.D.. This past year has been a whirlwind for The Sheepdogs – having just been the first unsigned band to be selected by voters to be on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine to opening for The Kings of Leon to winning three CASBY awards – they do not show signs of slowing down anytime soon. And what a year DFA 1979 has had too – playing sold out shows all over North America and festivals worldwide…who can forget the DFA 1979 reunion gig that caused a riot that broke out at SXSW? The side stage will be graced with performances by some amazing up and comers including, Acres of Lions, The Balconies, The Coppertone, The Darcys, Hacienda, Indian Handcrafts, Library Voices, Said The Whale and Whale Tooth.

The Inside Edge pre-sale for $39.50 Early Bird tickets ($49.50 after) starts this Tuesday (Dec. 13) at 10 a.m. and goes till Thursday (Dec. 15) at 11:59 p.m., with the public on-sale beginning on Friday (Dec. 16) at 10 a.m. Ticket information is also available at www.EdgefestToronto.com and www.edge.ca.
