Buffalo, NY - Last Sunday, WNY fans of modern rock had one last chance to enjoy an outdoor festival concert , as summer 2012 gasped it's last dying breath, but still managed to provide us with a beautiful sunny sky, with temperatures in the high 80’s. This event was radio station- WEDG 103.3, “EDGEFEST 2012,” held at the scenic and beautiful Outer Harbor on the lake in Buffalo, NY. This festival featured all of the bands currently on the “Carnival of Madness” tour, which includes Evanescence, Chevelle, Halestorm, Cavo and New Medicine, but with the additional added bands - Three Days Grace and Black Stone Cherry. This was the first time since 2005 that this event was held at this location (and also the first EdgeFest in a couple years). And with all of the positive feedback from the thousands in attendance, I can assure you that this will be the location for many more “EdgeFests” in the upcoming years. The organizers of the festival did an outstanding job utilizing two adjacent stages making for very little down time between acts. This was truly the place the be on the Sunday before Labor day.
