13 Best Toronto Concerts Happening in 2022

13 Best Toronto Concerts Happening in 2022

With things slightly going ~back to normal~ in 2022, there are plenty of awesome concerts happening in Toronto.

I used to be obsessed with going to concerts back in high school and university, and while I don’t really go to them anymore (Adam’s not a fan), I still love them.

There’s just something about being immersed in the music amongst thousands of other people – it’s such a fun experience!

If you’re in the mood to go out and enjoy some live music in the city, here are some of the best concerts in Toronto happening in 2022!

I’ve ordered the concerts by date just to make things easier.

Be sure to also follow me on Instagram and TikTok – I share a lot more content on those platforms that don’t make it to the blog!
