Down With Webster

Peterborough Musicfest is proud to announce our 2nd concert of the 2024 season by welcoming the high-energy Toronto-based rap/rock band Down With Webster to the Del Crary Park stage on Wednesday, July 31.

Down With Webster’s electrifying performances have won them a rabid fanbase from coast to coast. From their first performance at a junior high talent show, Down With Webster created their own style of genre-bending rap and rock sounds, and have blown away audiences ever since. Their songs have charted on Top 40 Radio, sold millions of singles, and amassed hundreds of millions of streams. They have wowed crowds during performances at the Much Music Video Awards, Junos, and festivals across the country.
The band first achieved commercial success with the release of the 2009 EP, Time to Win, Vol. I which consisted of the singles “Rich Girl$”, “Your Man” and “Whoa Is Me.”
Their major-label debut album, Time to Win, Vol. II (2011) featured the track “She’s Dope.” The 2014 follow-up album, Party for Your Life, included the songs “One in a Million” and “Chills.” Down With Webster has been nominated for Juno Awards, MuchMusic Video Awards, and Canadian Radio Music Awards.

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of their breakthrough album “Time To Win Vol. 1,” Down With Webster is reuniting for a limited number of shows in the summer of 2024, including Peterborough Musicfest on Wednesday, July 31 at 8 p.m. This will be the band’s first appearance on the Fred Anderson stage. Down With Webster last played in Peterborough at the Peterborough Memorial Centre in 2013 alongside Marianas Trench and Anami Vice.

This is the 37th year Peterborough Musicfest has been providing free summer concerts in Del Crary Park, a picturesque space in Peterborough on the shores of Little Lake.
Peterborough Musicfest’s 2024 season runs from June 29 to Aug.17, 2024 and with free concerts every Wednesday and Saturday night, as well as Canada Day July 1, 2024.

Peterborough Musicfest is funded by corporate sponsorships – most of those being locally owned businesses – multiple levels of government support, fundraising initiatives and private donations and, as a result, has been, and steadfastly remains, a uniquely free admission event. Dallas Green, Our Lady Peace, Serena Ryder, Gordon Lightfoot, 54-40 and Blue Rodeo are just a few of the sensational music acts that have appeared over the years.
Overseen by general manager Tracey Randall and staff, and a board of directors, Peterborough Musicfest’s stated mission is to “provide diverse, affordable live music to
enrich cultural and economic prosperity in our community. In order to fulfill this mandate and keep attracting legendary musicians to our stage, Peterborough Musicfest encourages any individual or business interested in sponsoring the festival to reach out at or phone 705-755-1111.
