OTTAWA (CelebrityAccess) – RBC Bluesfest has today (Feb. 18) announced its full lineup for the summer of 2020. Included on the list are previously announced acts, such as Rage Against The Machine, Jack Johnson, Vance Joy, Jade Bird, Marshmello, Lil Tecca, and the ‘Saints and Sinners Tour’ featuring Big Wreck, Headstones, Moist, and The Tea Party. New additions to the line-up include Alanis Morissette, Blink-182, Boyz II Men, The National, Daniel Caesar, Garbage and Tash Sultana among others.
“The response to the acts we announced during an early rollout in December for our Holiday sale was spectacular—and we feel confident that the talent we’re announcing today will definitely add to the buzz,” said Mark Monahan, the festival’s executive and artistic director. “I believe the strength of this year’s lineup is the depth of talent—we focussed on casting a wide net, reaching out to a broad demographic of fans—some well-known ‘flashes from the past’ and an impressive slate of international superstars, to go along with many other established and emerging acts.”
