Legendary punk rockers Green Day are headlining a celebration for Canada's Olympians at the World Cup of Hockey Fan Village in the Distillery District.

Tickets to the Sept. 23 event will be $25 for general admission standing room. East Fan Village will open at 3 p.m., and all attractions inside East Fan Village will be included in the price of admission. Distillery Fan Village will be free and open to the public.

The event will begin with a special welcome to members of Canada’s 2016 Olympic team and culminate with a 6:30 p.m. performance by Green Day in the East Fan Village as part of the 10-day fan festival.

Tickets go on sale Sept. 8 at 10 a.m. on ticketmaster.ca.

From Sept. 16 to 25, the family-friendly festival will occupy the Distillery District – renamed ‘Distillery Fan Village’ for the 10 days - plus more than 200,000 square feet of an untouched lot east of Cherry Street, which will be known as the ‘East Fan Village.’
