In a few weeks time on June 27th & 28th, thousands of electronic music fans will descend on Toronto's waterfront play-park Ontario Place for Bud Light Digital Dreams 2015, featuring two days of dance music spread across three massive stages. From headliners such as Carl Cox, Armin Van Buuren, Zedd, and Porter Robinson to local future superstars in Greg Gow, Cosella, and Rezz, the well rounded lineup offers one of the best festival choices in Canada this summer. As always since its inaugural year, EARMILK is giving away some VIP weekend passes to one lucky winner!

Let's start with the main stage acts. Armin van Buuren will be closing out Saturday night and Zedd earns the Sunday finale slot while Steve Angello and Martin Garrix round out the big four with sunset performances. Joining the crowd will be a few Canadians in Adventure Club and Paris & Simo, and Eva Shaw who handles opening duties Sunday after longtime resident DJ of The Guvernment, Mark Oliver opens up the festival on Saturday.
Switching gears to the Echo Beach stage, which features two massive takeovers from the legendary Carl Cox and Pete Tong. In addition to sets from the taste-makers themselves, they're bringing along a crew of friends including a double dip from Dubfire as he plays a second time as Deep Dish with Sharam on Sunday, a set you won't want to miss. Joining in on Carl Cox's Saturday fun will be another legend John Digweed, as well as a homecoming set from Toronto export Carlo Lio and Greg Gow, a talented local veteran who's coming off an appearance at the renowned Movement Electronic Music Festival.
On Sunday, things take a dive into the deep end with another hometown hero Cosella making his second appearance at Digital Dreams after a surprise invite from Nitin last year to fill in for DJ Sneak. With his 2015 already in high gear, the Downpour Records boss is coming off an invite from Gary Richards (Destructo) to play the Go Hard tour and should make for a perfect opening to Sunday's festivities with his forward thinking g-house. Continuing the vibe into the evening will be Disciples, Amtrac, Anna Lunoe and Mr. Dirtybird himself, Claude VonStroke before Pete Tong closes things out.
Last but certainly not least, the Bacardi Untameable tent features some of the biggest names in bass such as Excision, Flux Pavillion, Datsik, as well as superstar Porter Robinson. Rounding out the bill are a few local talents that are making waves as of recently, including Memorecks, and Rezz. If you've been to Digital Dreams before you know the Bacardi tent is the loudest, sweatiest place on earth, so be prepared for nothing but the same.
