The Stewart Park Festival has released its 2017 performer line-up and the talent set to hit the stage this summer is a solid mix that’ll once again draw thousands to the park.
The three-day festival, held July 14-16, will showcase performers from across Canada including long-time-loved, Juno-award winners Sue Foley and Valdy as well as up and coming artists such as The Wooden Sky, The O’Pears and Lindi Ortega.
This summer’s festival will be Artistic Director Joel LeBlanc’s last time putting the line-up together – and it is nothing short of memorable. “Joel scoped out the entire music industry and crafted a line-up that truly has something for everyone,” says festival chair John McKenty.
