Since everyone is talking about it, I am going to make a post/feedback about Ottwa Folk Festival.
Ottawa’s sister festival to Bluesfest has revealed their line-up for September 10-14 at Hog’s Back Park.
Everyone is all going ape crazy about this year’s line-up.
The big ones are Lorde (Seriously Royals is becoming a one-hit wonder), Foster The People, The National (Love their current album and wish they would sing England), Neutral Milk Hotel (Probably see them in the summer outside of Ottawa), Serena Ryder, Blue Rodeo (Oh! They aren’t playing Bluesfest but Folk instead!), Joss Stone, The War on Drugs (Love their current album) and many more.
While it’s becoming less folk and more diverse with it’s line-up. (Well the festival needs to survive with big name acts)
Fred Penner is one I would like to see.
As this festival gets bigger and bigger, it gets stricter and stricter for bloggers unless you get special privilege for a newspaper (Like if people still reads the paper?) on getting a media/photo pass.
Also ticket prices gets expensive every year and people (mostly Folk Festival staff) are getting meaner and meaner.
Don’t forget to check out the Ottawa acts playing, so go out and support them!
