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.
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.
