Edgefest, a yearly outdoor rock concert festival that primarily promotes Canadian rock music, began in 1987 and founded by CFNY-FM staffers Kneale Mann, Alan Cross, Earl Veale, and Phil Evans as a thank-you gesture to the listeners of Toronto radio station 102.1 the Edge and as a birthday party to commemorate both the station's tenth birthday, and the coinciding Canada Day. Since then, it has spanned 30 years, over 300 bands, over 500,000 attendees, and five locations; Molson Park in Barrie, Ontario, the Ontario Place Forum, the Molson Amphitheatre, Downsview Park, and most recently TD Echo Beach. It is now the longest running rock show in Canada.
Edgefest was an annual music festival in New Zealand, run by The Edge radio station.
Between 2004 and 2006 Edgefest took place in March, and hosted New Zealand musical bands and artists, as well as some overseas acts. It was thought of as a younger, more commercial version of the Big Day Out. It was normally sponsored by The Edge FM, Sounds music stores, C4 television, Coca Cola, and Vodafone.
The concerts were held on weekends in March, in Auckland (Supertop), Hamilton (Mystery Creek Events Centre), Wellington (Queens Wharf Events Centre) and Christchurch (Westpac Events Centre).
Edgefest is an annual concert held in Little Rock, Arkansas. It is produced by 100.3 The Edge radio station.
