Ottawa Folk Fest

So excited for payday this week – because with this paycheque comes tix to go see Ottawa Folk Fest with one of favourite music junkies, my dear Mag-pie.

Every summer I try to catch at least one music festival: Arts and Crafts Festival, Field Trip, Hillside, Luminato, NXNE, anything. But this summer just raced by too quickly – I haven’t seen a single live show since the snow melted. The Ottawa Folk Fest should hopefully fill that void with five glorious days of (hopefully) sunshine, grassy fields, and a fantastic line up of bands.

  • Foster the People
  • Gaslight Anthem
  • Wooden Sky
  • Coeur De Pirate
  • Sun Kill Moon
  • Elephant Revival
  • Adam Cohen
  • The National
  • Wake Owl
  • Craig Cardiff

The best part about festivals is the hope that you’ll discover something new and unknown. Something that will steal your heart away. There are a couple dozen bands playing I’ve never even heard of at the festival and I can’t wait to hear something new. 

What concerts are you all looking forward to before the summer ends?
