When Our Lady Peace, Sloan and I Mother Earth hit Toronto's Echo Beach stage on Aug. 16 they'll be capping off another edition of the 21-years-and-counting Edgefest concert series.
Edgefest has had a number of different phases: like the local band promoting period on the rotating stage at the Ontario Place Forum, the go-to Canada Day destination at Barrie's Molson Park, and as a Canada-crossing touring festival to rival Lollapalooza and Vans Warped.
Arguably, though, Edgefest's true glory days came in the '90s, when Can-Rock first broke big and the afore-mentioned OLP and IME along with the likes of The Tea Party, Matthew Good Band, Econoline Crush, Moist and Treble Charger were all platinum-selling, world-beating superstars.
