Rock the Block 2017
It’s the 3rd Annual #RocktheBlock battle of the bands on George Street! Many bands apply, a lucky few are chosen to compete during Canada Day weekend, and one will emerge as the winner – and go on to open the 2017 George Street Festival, performing on Opening Night ahead of Matt Mays and Sam Roberts Band Jul 27.
This year, we’ve selected TEN artists/bands to compete – more than ever before! They start 1pm on Sunday Jul 2, each performing a 45-minute set on the George Street stage. This is an ALL AGES show, so all your friends and family can come down and enjoy live local music on the street. Then on the next day, Mon Jul 3, online voting begins. YOU can help determine who wins the #GSF2017 opening spot!
