Published Apr 04, 2018After dropping the 2018 lineup on us earlier this year, Ottawa's RBC Bluesfest is expanding its upcoming fest.
Today organizers announced a handful of additions, including festival favourites Blue Rodeo. Other new adds include Common Deer, Eat a Peach (Allman Brothers Band Tribute), Hunter Siegel, Chuurch (presented by Deadbeats) and Lilly Hiatt.
The festival's first day of July 5 will also feature an opening ceremony showcasing Algonquin-Anishinabe Youth Hand Drummers from Kitigan Zibi and Barriere Lake.
However, Shaggy will no longer be playing due to a scheduling conflict.
Ottawa's RBC Bluesfest runs July 5 to 15 at LeBreton Flats. The festival will feature a bill topped by Foo Fighters, Shawn Mendes, Bryan Adams, Beck, Rae Sremmurd, Sturgill Simpson, Dave Matthews Band and Rise Against.
Other previously announced acts include Jethro Tull, Zeds Dead, Jessie Reyez, the War on Drugs, Courtney Barnett, BROCKHAMPTON, Chromeo, Ghostface Killah, Naughty by Nature, the Strumbellas, M. Ward and more.
