Foo Fighters, Shawn Mendes Lead The Lineup For The RBC Ottawa Bluesfest 2018

OTTAWA, Ontario (CelebrityAccess) — The team behind the RBC Ottawa Bluesfest announced a lineup for the 2018 edition of the event that includes headliners Foo Fighters, Shawn Mendes, and Bryan Adams

The festival, which is set for Lebreton Flats Park for a ten-day stretch from July 5 to 15, will also feature performances from Bluesfest first-timer Beck, as well as Rise Against, Dave Matthews Band, Jethro Tull and Sturgill Simpson.

Bluesfest executive director Mark Monahan told the CBC that artist diversity was a focus this year. “That’s what I think we’ve achieved,” Monahan told the CBC.

While this year’s lineup includes many traditional rock acts, the fest’s bill also features a spate of hip-hop and electronic artists as well, including Shaggy, Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah, R&B performer Noname, Rae Sremmurd, Machine Gun Kelly, Naughty by Nature and Brockhampton.

Tickets for the 2018 RBC Ottawa Bluesfest go on sale on Feb. 16th, with pre-sale tickets available starting the day before at 10 a.m. Tickets include single-day, as well as three and five day passes, VIP tickets and full fest wristbands.
