It’s almost that time again for Ottawa’s RBC Bluesfest and like last year, I’m here to give you a run down on which bands will be headlining! This year, the organizers have expanded the event by a few days and brought in a plethora of huge acts! Most notably are Kanye West, CeeLo Green, and Iggy Azalea who just recently cancelled her tour but has confirmed she is going to still be performing on July 11th at Lebreton Flats. Now I don’t want you to think it’s all hip hop, I know not everyone is into that so for you country music fans you’ve got the chance to see Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, and Johnny Reid, while Lynard Skynard and Deep Purple are stopping by to take us on a little trip to the 70s. Finally, Bluesfest wouldn’t be complete without a few amazing Canadian bands that have stood the test of time. Blue Rodeo will be closing out the night on Sunday the 12th, and The Tragically Hip will be performing on Friday the 17th.

Be sure to check out the official website for the complete line-up and ticket information, and stay tuned for my next post about who I’m most excited to see.
