Rock The Coliseum

  • Mississauga Celebration Square 300 City Centre Drive Mississauga, ON, L5B 2G6 Canada (map)

Rock the Coliseum is back for another year! For 2016, the Rock the Coliseum team has programmed a diverse, inclusive line-up that features slices of the best independent Canadian music in the GTA, ranging from indie-rock to dark pop to prog metal orchestra to skate punk throwback, and the return of the pro b-boy/b-girl break battle that has been such an integral part of the festival for the last few years! This is a FREE all ages event!


Founded in 2006, Rock the Coliseum (RTC) has been an annual, all-ages, free music festival in Mississauga that celebrates and supports all genres of independent Canadian music, placing special emphasis on Mississauga talent. Simply put, RTC is a celebration of everything positive about the Mississauga music community.

Rock the Coliseum is a project of the Independent Music Initiative and the Canadian Community Arts Initiative – two not-for-profit organizations based in Mississauga, ON. RTC attracts and audience that is energetic, musically informed, and culturally diverse. The venue, the Celebration Square Amphitheater, is simple to reach by public transit, and parking in the area is free.
