Tegan and Sara have played many festivals around the world, including Coachella, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, and have toured with artists such as Cyndi Lauper and Neil Young.

Since 2003, they have headlined tours in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia, and their music has been featured on network television shows, including Parenthood, Grey’s Anatomy
