Apt613 chatted with Kevin Young, keyboardist and founding member of the festival co-headliners Moist, to catch up on what the band has been up to on how they have worked around the pandemic, and the creative process for their latest upcoming album.
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. This somewhat abbreviated edition will feature a single stage over three evenings, and while it may not have similar quantity to previous years, it certainly is bringing headline quality performers.
CityFolk Festival is presenting outdoor concerts at Lansdowne Park from Sept. 16 to 18. Kicking off the weekend, the Thursday night lineup includes performances from singer-songwriter Charlotte Day Wilson, Toronto R&B duo DVSN, OVO rapper Roy Woods, and Juno award-winning R&B artist TÖME.
Many Ottawa-based music, arts, and performance festivals will receive increased financial support through a new Ontario government funding program. The one-time increase in funding to the festival and event sector will not only help people engage with art and their communities, but will also help festival networks in need of support.
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.

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.
