Ryland James, Barenaked Ladies, and Jann Arden brought music to Bluesfest’s stage at Lansdowne Park. The mini fall festival ends on Saturday night, Sept. 25.
Bluesfest is presenting outdoor concerts at Lansdowne Park from Sept. 23 to 25. Kicking off the weekend, the Thursday night lineup includes performances from rising singer-songwriter Lauryn Macfarlane, Oji-Cree multi-instrumentalist Aysanabee, indie rock band Tokyo Police Club, and Montreal-based Half Moon Run.
Catching up with frontman Devon Portielje, it’s clear Half Moon Run has been through a lot during the pandemic and yet has continued to evolve and is on the cusp of even greater things.
Bluesfest takes its turn at Lansdowne for its own weekend, boasting a lineup of iconic Canadian performers. Check out our day-by-day roundup for what to expect!
While it seemed unlikely just a few months ago, Ottawa will actually be hosting live music festivals in 2021, starting with this weekend’s CityFolk.

For two weekends in September, live music returns to Lansdowne Park with both Bluesfest and CityFolk offering star-studded lineups. Tickets go on sale August 26.
