Summer Music Festivals in Canada

There is nothing more exciting than when your favorite artist announces the release of a new album. It is even more exciting when that artist releases it right before summer hits. Summer is a great time for artists to release music because their top songs become known as summer anthems. Summer is also a great time to release music because summer is the time for music festivals. A place that is known for hosting music festivals is Canada.
