Canada may not have Glastonbury, Lollapalooza or Coachella, but the once-small Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest is slowly creeping up on becoming one of those internationally-renowned mega music festivals.
Taking place in downtown Ottawa from July 7th to July 18th, the capital city will welcome the likes of Arcade Fire, Weezer, Drake, The Flaming Lips, Rush, Alexisonfire, Metric, Iron Maiden, Keith Urban, Joan Jett, Passion Pit, The Hold Steady, The Rural Alberta Advantage, Down With Webster, Faber Drive, Lights, Woodhands, Marianas Trench and Blonde Redhead, among many, many others.
Tickets for the Bluesfest go on sale this Saturday (April 24) at 10 a.m. For more information visit the site here.
