Now in its 38th year, the 2017 Sound of Music Festival will take over Burlington’s Waterfront June 10 – 18. The ticketed Kick-Off starts the week’s festivities with a day-long, one-stage show. With 90s-era alt-rock very hot right now, The Offspring and the just-reunited LIVE will headline. More acts (no doubt representing other eras and genres) will be announced soon.
Sound of Music also features a free Father’s Day Weekend concert from June 15 – 18, with the lineup announcement arriving on April 27th.
So far only tickets for the Kick-Off Concert are available at $60 a pop, but more information is on the way. If you just can’t wait, or want to get involved in the staging of the festival itself, Sound of Music volunteer applications are already available on the festival’s website.
Burlington’s biggest festival (and certainly now one of the GTA’s most interesting) boasts all kinds of attractions for its guests. The Club Series highlights local talent, a Silver Series gears acts towards old classics, and a marketplace and carnival give guests entertainment options between sets. And of course, the festival is still connected to its roots – the original marching band parade Sound of Music was based on is still in operation.
Full details on the festival’s offerings, as well as any sales announcements or updates, can be found on soundofmusic.ca.
