Once In A Lifetime, Twice In A Summertime

January 22nd, 2024

The last time we played Budweiser Stage was three summers ago. It was a long-weekend affair, the first shows back after nobody had been allowed to attend a concert in quite some time. They were the most emotional and euphoric shows we’ve ever played, and a truly special return to the stage. But if you know one thing about Arkells, it’s that our goal is to always make each show better than the last. So we’ve hit the ground running, with an aim to build the biggest party of the summer.

Mark your calendars, cause Arkells are BACK for a doubleheader weekend on Friday June 21 and Saturday June 22 at Budweiser Stage in Toronto.

Tickets are on-sale Friday January 26th at 10 AM, with pre-sales starting tomorrow, January 24th at 10 AM. All ticket info can be found here.

Joining us as special guests on Night 1 will be legends TEGAN AND SARA, whose songs we’ve been singing and career we’ve admired since we started our band. If we’re lucky they’ll even agree to sing “Teenage Tears,” our collab from Blink Twice. On Night 2, GROUPLOVE will be joining us on the bill. We’ve never met in real life, but we’ve been fans since their first record, and respect the energy they will bring to a Saturday night. On both shows, Adam Melchor will be opening up. As an excellent singer-songwriter and relentless touring act, he has recently shared the stage with Noah Kahan, Mt. Joy and Laufey.

You can imagine we’re gonna do our best to pull out all the stops and make this weekend as memorable as it should be. We’re going to play all the hits each night, but also make each set unique. Our catalogue is DEEP at this point, and we’re going to pull out some surprises for the day ones. There will be lots of tix for you and your pals who love to party on the lawn, so start ringing the alarm in your group chats.

The only thing we humbly ask is this: tell your friends and everyone you know, and don’t miss the pre-sale, which starts January 24th at 10 AM. If you do those two things, it’ll be the best two nights of your summer.

Once in a lifetime, twice in a summertime. Consider it BOOKED! Get your tix here.
