Rock The Coliseum @ Celebration Square Amphitheatre – August 15, 2014

As an avid live music photographer, I’m always on the lookout for shows to attend. I found out about Rock The Coliseum (RTC) during one of my online searches. RTC is a free, all-ages, two-day music festival held at the Celebration Square Amphitheatre in Mississauga, Ontario. Its aim is to promote independent Canadian music, with a special emphasis on Mississauga talent. I don’t often go out of town to shoot gigs. In fact, this may have been the first time. Either way, I decided to take the 90-minute trip by public transit to check out a couple of the bands on Friday, August 15, which was the first day of the festival. The outdoor venue is relatively small and contained, giving it a cozy feel.

Mississauga, Ontario!
