Live Music in Toronto

Name a genre, and chances are that Toronto has a live music venue for it. The city’s robust music scene reflects Toronto’s international flare, with concert venues that host acts from around the world, Canadian favourites and local bands that are the pure Toronto sound. 

From rock to trip-hop to pop, indie, electronic, folk and rap, Toronto’s music scene is constantly expanding in new directions every day of the week and late into the night. So go out and catch a show—today’s opening act show could be next year’s Alanis Morrisette, Bare Naked Ladies or Drake. 

Toronto’s nightlife scene is as varied as the crowd it attracts. From Vegas-style lounges to after-hours nightclubs to relaxed sports bars, there are options to suit every mood.
