Running July 15-17 the series will include performances by Jim Cuddy Band, Stars, Skydiggers, The Sadies, and Elliott Brood live on stage at the CityView Drive-In in addition to a livestream option for viewers to watch at home.
All drive-in and live stream ticket holders will have access to watch a rebroadcast of the show for 10 days after the original event.
