Adventure #42: Welcome Summer with the Sound of Music
In 2012, Burlington’s Sound of Music Festival was named the #1 music festival in the world! Can you believe it? Our “little” festival in our “little” city received the Grand Pinnacle award from the International Festivals & Events Association, reflecting the best overall festival or event anywhere.
Perhaps this is because the Sound of Music Festival isn’t so little anymore. Indeed, over the past fifteen years she has truly grown up to emerge as a phenomenal, world-class event.
This year, the event was expected to attract over 210,000 visits with its unique blend of over 90 new and emerging artists, Canadian icons and returning fan favourites. Musical acts were located throughout our waterfront and downtown area in 10 different performance areas.
