Ottawa Bluesfest announces lineup!

 

One of the most anticipated festivals of the year in Ottawa is the Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest, which takes place from July 6 through 18, 2010. They just announced their lineup today, filled with top names like Arcade Fire, Santana, Rush, Iron Maiden, Weezer, Keith Urban, the B-52s, Gipsy Kings, Moody Blues, Crowded House, and more!

What makes Bluesfest so great is the party atmosphere. Six stages encircle the Canadian War Museum on LeBreton Flats overlooking the Ottawa River — the music continues almost non-stop. The crowds are a friendly mix of locals and visitors., and the festival has a commitment to green practices: using biodiesel for their generators, compostable beer cups made from corn, a robust recycling program, and environmentally friendly cleaning products. They also provide tons of bicycle parking!

Check out their website to search who’s playing by day, by stage or by performer and start planning your visit today — tickets go on sale April 24!
