Bigger and better concerts are coming to Toronto’s Budweiser Stage! Live Nation Canada has announced that the iconic amphitheater is getting transformed into a “modern year-round live music and performance venue,” for up to 9,000 people indoors and 20,000 people outdoors.
The revamp is part of the province’s big plans for Ontario Place to make it a hub for attractions and fun things to do. The venue is getting a “state-of-the-art” look and design and is set to be complete by 2030.
Budweiser Stage has been a go-to venue for major artists for 25 years. It’s where OVO Fest normally takes place every summer, although with Drake’s new History concert hall now open in the Beaches, who knows what the future holds.

After this transformation is complete, Budweiser Stage will not only be the “definitive summertime destination in Toronto,” but also for concerts and other events throughout the entire year.
The new-and-improved amphitheater will host 1 million visitors and provide up to 900 jobs during events, according to a press release from Live Nation.
A whole lineup of exciting acts will hit the current Budweiser Stage in the coming weeks. The Arkells are performing for the first time in 520 days from August 13th to the 15th, Sam Roberts Band will play on August 19th, and Blue Rodeo is hitting the stage on August 28th.
