Canadian provinces and territories are buzzing with summer music festivals. Jazz fests, blues fests, pop fests, even theatrical buskerfests. They're all on display in cities and towns throughout Canada this summer. At Connect Hearing, we love music, which is a big reason why we champion hearing health — to ensure Canadians stay connected to the sounds they love.
"Music is one of the most relaxing and enjoyable parts of life," says MJ DeSousa,our Director of Professional Practice. "Protecting your hearing at festivals and concerts ensures the songs and artists you adore remain an entertaining part of your life."
Wherever you live, it's a given some great live entertainment is happening close to you in July, August and September. Some of the upcoming festivals not to be missed include Osheaga in Montreal (August 2-4) and the George Street Festival in St. John's (August 1-6).
Carry earplugs when you go and if there is any indication your hearing may be deteriorating, visit a Connect Hearing clinic for a complimentary hearing test.
