For the first time ever, the renowned music phenomenon known simply as Dwayne Gretzky will be headlining Toronto’s Festival of Beer (TFOB 2018), presented by the Beer Store, on Saturday, July 28, 2018. The annual summer sampling event returns to Bandshell Park, in Exhibition Place on July 26-29, 2018 with a newly added fourth day of festivities for attendees to enjoy. Dwayne Gretzky’s performance is presented by Q107 and 102.1 The Edge.

The legendary Saturday of Toronto’s Festival of Beer is a day that everyone needs to experience,” said Les Murray, President of Toronto’s Festival of Beer, “Dwayne Gretzky will bring the hit songs and the energy and we’ll bring a massive selection of brews and tasty culinary treats for fans to enjoy.

Dwayne Gretzky is a collection of Toronto musicians that delve into nostalgia, uniting fans of all ages to sing along to the greatest hits of the last 50 years and by performing with energy and fidelity. Their performance at TFOB2018 will be exactly that, as they plan to take their electrifying show to attendees; all in celebration of #BeerLove.

Dwayne Gretzky is a live music collective celebrating the greatest songs of all time. Transcending both era and genre, this prodigiously talented group of Toronto musicians captivates audiences with a masterfully curated tour of artists from both the classic and modern pop canon – from Bowie to Beyoncé, Springsteen to Spears, The Supremes to The Strokes. With tasteful precision, chameleonic versatility and a flair for the dramatic, Dwayne Gretzky scratches our collective itch to be surprised by the familiar.

In an increasingly saturated and scattered music landscape defined by predictable playlists and individualized consumption, Dwayne’s high-energy nostalgia trips recall the serendipity of flipping through the radio dial, and the joy of coming together en masse to celebrate and sing along to the best songs ever written. Boasting 100+ straight sold-out shows in their hometown of Toronto and with venue capacities growing into the multiple-thousands, Dwayne Gretzky’s momentum is a testament to the band shattering conventions and re-defining what audiences want in a live music experience.
