Ottawa's Bluesfest is one of my favourite festivals to attend each year as they always take the time to put together a diverse musical lineup which allows fans to expand their musical horizons. Set at Lebreton Flats at the Nation's Capital, Bluesfest features multiple stages that invite fans to walk around to check out unknown acts.
For the electronic dance music fans, there are plenty of options that include a very big Wednesday night (July 8th) this week with the first tour stop of the Full Flex Express Tour. Featuring Jack Ü (Skrillex and Diplo), they are joined by a stellar cast consisting of Zeds Dead, Tycho, Anna Lunoe B2B Mija, A$AP Ferg, Kiezsa, and Hundred Waters. Bluesfest will also feature a special live show from Porter Robinson on July 11th, and a trance night on July 16th with Paul Oakenfold and Ilan Bluestone. For all ticket information, click here.
