This includes artists, fans, partners, vendors, and our dedicated staff. Our BootsLife fans are some of the best in the world with their larger-than-life energy that we feel so grateful to celebrate year after year. Similarly, Nickelback brings a loyal, timeless fanbase and an unforgettable live show that has allowed them to soar to the top of the charts for decades and continue to break barriers. It makes it extra special to welcome them to Boots and Hearts and into our festival family. We look forward to celebrating their incredible talent and amazing rock show.

“Music festivals have always been known to create once in a lifetime experiences, moments in time you can’t relive and memories that last forever. The ‘I remember when’s’ and the ‘saw it there firsts’ are something we as a company strive for and work hard to deliver to our fans year after year. We saw it with Shania at Boots and Hearts last year and we can’t wait to create another iconic Canadian moment celebrating Nickelback alongside country music icons Tim McGraw and Keith Urban.” Shares Brooke Dunford, Director of Booking and Brand Strategy, Republic Live. “The roster also includes new artists paving their way within the genre and beyond. Watching an artist like Hardy, who made his Canadian debut at Boots and Hearts in 2019 who will now open for Nickelback is extremely special for us. Transcending a new wave of country music and taking fans on a journey blending rock and country is something we’re extremely excited to celebrate and embrace as fans of live music and unforgettable moments.”
