Another year, another RBC Ottawa Bluesfest announcement – and it came a little bit earlier than expected this year. The festival will be happening July 7 – 17 at the usual LeBreton Flats location, just before two other giant music festivals take place in Toronto and Montreal – WAYHOME & Osheaga, respectively. The Bluesfest organizers have chosen a diverse group of artists this year (around 75 in total with more likely to come), including big names such as The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Billy Idol, Duran Duran, John Fogerty, and Brad Paisley. However, the talent sure goes a lot deeper than that. We’ve included the full lineup with some videos of artists you may or may not know for you to check out below.

  • I’m always amazed to see such a great lineup in the city.

    It seems to get bigger and better with time. More shows. More artists.

    I’m sure it will gain even more traction next year!
