Buffalo’s WEDG, 103.3 the Edge, will host Edgefest 2016 July 31 at its new home: Canalside.
Previous Edgefests have been held at the Outer Harbor.
This year’s lineup has heavy hitters the Deftones co-headlining the show with City of Colour. Also on the bill are Sam Roberts Band, Tokyo Police Club, the Joy Formidable, Best Coast and Holy White Hounds and Rochester natives Joywave.
For some, this year’s lineup doesn’t quite match up to last year’s lineup, which included Our Lady Peace, Coheed and Cambria and Rise Against. Last year’s event also featured a big surprise when Ashley-Marie Harrock proposed to her longtime boyfriend Steven Gunnerson on stage in front of thousands of people, and happily, they are still together.
Let’s hope for better weather this year — last year’s festival saw a downpour all day, which aggravated fans and some bands alike.
Tickets can be purchased from Ticketfly or the Town Ballroom’s website.
