July 16th will feature the iconic Blink 182 alongside Simple Plan and Grandson.

    “Rock has always done extremely well in our market. Although we made the change from Classic Rock a few years ago, we always wanted to stay true to our roots with a rock element. This year, we are proud to have one of the most iconic punk rock bands of their era, Blink 182. And who better to support them than Simple Plan? This is going to be a special night for us, London, and all our attendees. The remainder of our dates will be announced very soon, stay tuned London!”

    Grandson is an alternative artist hailing from Toronto, Canada. Born in the small town of Englewood New Jersey, he relocated to the cultural melting pot of Toronto at a young age and grew up surrounded by music ranging from jazz and rock & roll to rap, dancehall and R&B. Searching for his voice and for meaning in today’s divisive, chaotic world, grandson confronts the most pressing issues of his generation through his songwriting, such as financial inequality, governmental, environmental accountability and social justice, giving these topics a soundtrack with a genuine sense of urgency and frustration.
