Born and Raised this summer’s hottest ticket

back to all articles

A celebration and homecoming for Alexisonfire bandmates Dallas Green, George Pettit, Wade MacNeil, Chris Steele, and Jordan Hastings, Born & Raised will be a massive music festival set for Montebello Park in Downtown St. Catharines June 30-July 2.

Alexisonfire rose up out of the St. Catharines underground in late 2001 with City and Colour’s Platinum certified album Sometimes debuting a few short years later in 2005.

With a chance to see Green perform as part of both Alexisonfire and City and Colour in his hometown, as well as other Canadian alt-rock greats and up-and-comers, Born & Raised is one of the hottest tickets this summer.

Alexisonfire and City and Colour headline Born and Raised with a dozen other can’t-miss acts, such as Broken Social Scene, Sam Roberts Band, Billy Talent and Pup. Rounding out this incredible lineup are: Ruby Waters, Chastity, Moneen, Dooms Children, Hot Water Music, NoBro, Cleopatrick and the OBGMs.
