It’s time to look forward to summer again.

One of the largest music festivals in Canada happens right here in the 905.  This year bands like Finger Eleven, The Trews and The Tea Party are playing to crowds of hundreds of thousands on Father’s Day weekend in downtown Burlington.  And most important, it’s free.  Yes, that’s right free!

The previous two years have been challenging for artists and live music fans due to the pandemic restrictions.  However, as we start to put that behind us, it’s time to get back to enjoying the things we love.  To give us some insight into the challenges of coming back from a global pandemic stronger than ever, and to show us what to expect at this year’s festival, we asked Myles Rusak the Executive Director of the Burlington Sound of Music Festival to join us.

Myles is clearly a music fan, and if you’re one too, you’re going to want to listen to this episode.
