Arboretum Music + Arts Festival is coming very soon. September 15, 2012 to be exact.
Ferriswheel is playing at this year’s event.
So I got to ask Simon Trottier some questions regarding Arboretum Festival.
Check out on what he has to say!
How excited is Ferriswheel to be playing at the inaugural Arboretum Festival?
Very excited to play this festival. Every show we did around Ottawa / Gatineau were great. We haven’t played that many festivals with this band so we are thrilled about this one, and we are looking forward to try out the food vendors and the wine bar.
Is there any acts you are excited to see?
H. de Hertz, Sandro Perri, Steamboat, Ohbijou.
Besides the acts, is there any of the food vendors you are willing to try out?
Guédille from Chez Edgar/Odile, food from Whalesbone, beers from Hintonburg…
What can we expect from your live set for those who haven’t seen Ferriswheel before?
Most of our latest record material, some old pieces, maybe we’ll try to improvise a new one…
What do you think a festival like this would be beneficial to the city?
Of course, Ottawa needs good festivals like this one where you can see and listen to great music, try some food and be surrounded by arts. What a great idea and so refreshing from big festivals like Bluesfest. So great to have people like Rolf who are creating a festival where the focus is on music and arts and not about making people drunk and making big bucks selling Budweiser…
