TORONTO, June 27, 2016 /CNW/ - Today, CMT Music Fest and its official beer and cider partner Molson Coors shared details on three activities designed to heighten the fan experience at this year's festival, which takes place Friday, July 8 and Saturday, July 9 at Bingemans grounds in Kitchener, Ontario. The three activations will feature Coors Banquet, lead beer brand for CMT Music Fest, Molson Canadian Cider, the festival's exclusive cider brand, and Coors Light, the most popular beer in Canada.
