You can say the first night of Bon-Fire 2018 was a warm-up for what was to come on the Saturday’s portion of the festival.
Started off a nice sunny day with Alexia Avina, who performed at the Forest Stage.
Very nice ambient dream pop music by the Montreal musician.
Reminds me of Sea Oleena!
L Con at the Forest Stage performing a lovely set of experimental dream folk-pop and some electronica music.
Been a long time since I last saw Anamai perform.
This lovely intimate solo set was filled with ambient alternative folk music.
Ottawa’s Shadowhand graced the Forest Stage with a lovely set of indie folk rock music.
Nova Scotia’s Construction & Deconstruction performed at the Bonfire Tent.
Hadn’t seen them perform in quite some time.
It was a mix of loud and mellow rock music!
Wasn’t as loud as I saw them a few years ago but still a wonderful set.
Anishinaabe singer/songwriter Ansley Simpson graced the Forest Stage with some lovely folk music.
Witch Prophet was one of the big surprises at Bon-Fire.
This was the first time seeing them perform.
Really enjoyed their blend of Experimental Hip-hop, R&B/soul music.
There was some excitement for Jennifer Castle at the Forest Stage.
Backed by six members, it was a nice set of dream folk pop music.
I would say it was a crying shame for those that missed out this set!
This was probably Napster Vertigo‘s first Ottawa show.
Yes that was Basia Bulat in the band singing back-up!
Truly an insane set that was filled with inspired 70s rock music.
I couldn’t stop dancing to Bonjay.
Mauno was the last act to perform at the Bonfire Tent.
There was a pretty nice crowd to see the band perform from Tuning and previewing new materials for an upcoming album.
It was definitely a great set!
Casper Skulls totally rocked it out on the Forest Stage.
Playing mostly from their 2017 full-length Mercy Works and previewing some new materials.
It was so great to see the Toronto band at their finest!
Ending my night was the headliner Wolf Parade.
Despite some minor technical difficult from Dante DeCaro’s equipment.
The band totally put on a great indie rock set!
Overall I totally had a great time for year seven of the festival.
While there was some hiccups a few months ago but that didn’t really matter for those that came out and wanting to see their favorite musicians/bands.
Also one of the most fun and laidback festival to have in Ottawa.
