Music is the perfect last-minute gift

Last-Minute Gift Ideas for Music Lovers - SiriusXM

Let’s be honest, last-minute gifts can sometimes be crap. I know a guy who honestly bought gifts from a gas station because he waited to long to pick anything up. BTW, there are some very cool gas stations out there who do have cool items, but the guy I know was forced to choose between smokes and lotto tickets. What I’m trying to say is, there are some very cool last-minute gift options out there that will blow people’s minds when received.

A subscription to SiriusXM is a great gift for music lovers. But one option that I feel people often look beyond, and likely because they are generally months away, is music festival tickets. Canada is home to some of the best music festivals in the world, and because we spend much of the year indoors, it’s always great to be with friends and family outdoors with food and drink and sounds. I know there are a bunch of people who are not ready to get back into big crowds and that’s cool since most festivals have plenty of space for fans to spread out.

Here’s a quick list of festivals you might want to consider picking up tickets as gifts for that music fan you know and love…
