Stranded Fest is a breakthrough, one-of-a-kind music festival showcasing the best of Ontario’s talent performing once-in-a-lifetime cover sets.
This unique concert series prides itself in supporting the Toronto music scene by featuring exciting Canadian talent while simultaneously providing crowds with music by the bands they love.
Since its inception in 2016, Stranded Fest has put on two major festivals, nine special genre-specific shows, and a total of 42 unique cover sets – and has sold out some of Toronto’s most famous venues on numerous occasions, including Lee’s Palace (twice).
This year’s Stranded Fest is going to be bigger and better than ever. Finding a new home at The Opera House, Stranded Fest 2018 will feature six unique cover sets with some of the GTA’s top and up-and-coming talent.
New to Stranded Fest this year are its two headliners: Seaway and Darenots. Oakville pop punk legends Seaway will rock out as Weezer, and alternative rock aficionados Darenots will take the stage as The Offspring – in what is sure to be one hell of a one-two punch.
Supporting acts will include strong local talent including The Look Back Now as The Killers, Satanic Mills as Red Hot Chili Peppers, and more.
Stranded Fest 2018 will take the stage on August 11th at The Opera House. Get your tickets here!
