Months after naming five headliners, organizers of RBC Bluesfest made the grand announcement of more than 90 news artists for the 2020 festival edition.

It was an open secret that Rage Against The Machine would play Bluesfest, after the band posted summer tour dates on social media. Depending who you ask, other highlights in the 2020 lineup include Alanis Morissette, Blue Rodeo, Blink 182, Charlotte Day Wilson, Daniel Caesar, DJ Shadow, Deltron 3030, Jack Johnson, Jeremy Dutcher, King Crimson, Patrick Watson, The Cinematic Orchestra, and Polaris Music Prize winner Haviah Mighty.

More highlights from the local programming include Apt613 favourites Amanda Lowe, Angelique Francis, Kimberly Sunstrum, Mack & Ben, The Commotions, and Sly High.

If history repeats itself, Bluesfest will announce another couple dozen acts before the festival begins on July 9.

Visit for the complete lineup. Tickets and passes go on sale at 10am on February 20, 2020.
