The festival is set to take place from July 6 to 16 at at LeBreton Flats Park in Ottawa.

“To celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary, we’ve put together one of our best lineups ever and one of Ottawa’s favourite sons (Dan Aykroyd) seems to agree,” says the festival’s executive and artistic director Mark Monahan. “We expect thousands of visitors to join in and celebrate some great music in the nation’s capital, this summer. New for 2017, in expectation of an increase in the number of out-of-town visitors, we are offering weekend-one (July 6-9) or weekend-two (July 13-16) passports.” – Staff Writers
