Ottawa’s CityFolk music festival have announced the lineup for the virtual version of the festival they are staging in lieu of their annual outdoor event, due to the ongoing pandemic.
Marvest festival organizers have announced that this year’s festival is going virtual, with online concerts from 15 of the region’s most exciting artists.
We went to see Lucy Dacus, Dawes, and The White Buffalo on closing day of CityFolk 2019.

We connected with guitarist Steve Mazur on how things have been going with the band of late.
Just as the festival was hitting its stride, it’s already coming to an end, as the traditionally 5-day festival was shortened by a day for 2019.
Day 2 at CityFolk 2019
With Friday’s incredible triple-header rock bill behind us, it’s back to the eclectic mix that CityFolk is well known for. Folk? Check. R&B? Check. Indigenous hip-hop? Yup, check too.

Catch Dear Rouge early Friday evening as they hit the City Stage at 5:45PM.
As we did with Bluesfest this summer, Apt613 will have you covered with daily preview articles, including highlights and interviews with some of the artists about to hit the stage.
We caught up with keyboardist and former Carleton University student Dave Ritter.
Day 1 features The Strumbellas, Lucinda Williams, Orville Peck, Dwayne Gretzky, Larkin Poe and The Once.
Welcome to another beautiful weekend in the city. Straddled on the cusp of summer meets fall, the mornings are crisp and cool, but the afternoons still bring warmth and sunshine. There is plenty to do around town this weekend and we here at Apt613 can’t wait to tell you about it.
Marvest takes place at over 20 shops and venues on Bank Street, between Lansdowne Park and the Queensway, on Friday September 13 and Saturday September 14, 2019. Admission is free.
