UPDATE Aug 2014 : The list in this post is from 2013. Click on this line to view the CNE Bandshell Concert listing for 2014.

The grande lady is about to return to Toronto. Yes, the CNE is almost here. I was going thru the list of Musicians which will be performing at the Bandshell Stage. The official list can be found by clicking the following:  the official CNE Bandshell page.
They had posted their list in alphabetical order. I plan things around dates and so I thought that I would post the list of concerts in Date order.

There are a few dates which are still empty. Please check the official CNE page for conformation before heading down to catch any of the shows.


Some of the dates seem to indicate the opening act, while others do not. The list above is subject to change without notice. Always refer to the official CNE website for confirmation.


On Aug 27, entrance into the CNE grounds will be Free till 3PM only to those who are 19 and under. That’s free entry from 10am till 3pm if you are 19 years of age or under and “ONLY” on Tuesday Aug 27th. Please confirm this before heading there on Aug 27 by visiting the official CNE page detailing that day (Aug 27th).


Really nice to see the CNE continuing the tradition of offering great concerts. Hope that this post is of help. Have fun at The EX.

UPDATE Aug 19: Removed my added info about the MUDMEN concerts at the Midway Stage, which were held on Aug 16, 17 & 18. Since that event is over, there is no point in leaving that info and possibly confusing someone.

UPDATE Aug 20: Just checked the CNE website again and now all their concert listings are in Date order. Last week they were in Alphabetic order of the names of the Bands. Their Midway Stage concerts are now also in Date order. Good move  by the CNE, even though it makes this post redundant.
