Friday Artist / The Trews

Friday Artist / The Trews

Judging by the boldness of their choices, you’d never guess the Trews are 10 years, five studio albums and thousands of gigs into their highly celebrated career. Clearly, someone forgot to tell them that bands are supposed to become more predictable as the years go by, not less so. And yet, evidence of a stubborn refusal to play it safe and abounds, most notably in the East Coast–‐bred, Toronto–‐ based rock squad’s eponymous, electrifying new disc, The Trews.

Add in the fact that of late the Trews have been piling up the accolades touring acoustically despite being certified rock brawlers and the net result is something you just don’t see every day: proverbial old dogs issuing some seriously new tricks.

Saturday Artist / Classified

Saturday Artist / Classified

What does the most acclaimed hip-hop artist in Canada do after reaching a new pinnacle of commercial success? In the case of the platinum-selling Enfield, Nova Scotia- based rapper Classified, the answer is return to his roots. Classified’s artistry is about balance. Through boom-bap beats, catchy choruses and dirty drums, Classified uses his unparalleled wit, lyrics and diction to examine the fine line between mainstream success and the underground.

Classified found his greatest success in 2013 with the release of his Gold-certified self-titled album,
which featured the 5x Platinum single “Inner Ninja” – the highest selling hip hop single in Canadian history.The album also went on to produce the hit singles “Three Foot Tall”, “Higher” (w/B.o.B) and “Pay
Day”. The album landed Classified a record deal with Atlantic Records in the US, and further entrenched
his own Half Life Records brand in Canada, distributed by Universal Music and administeredby the team at Black Box.

One of Canada’s most sought-after festival acts, Classified has put in his time on the road as well.
Whether it’s headlining tours, or expanding his audience by supporting artists such as Hedley, he wins
over crowds wherever he goes. New album is slated for Fall 2015 via Half Life Records.

Sunday Artist / Steve Earle and the Dukes

Sunday Artist / Steve Earle and the Dukes

A protégé of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, Earle quickly became a master storyteller in his own right, with his songs being recorded by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, Travis Tritt, The Pretenders, Joan Baez and countless others.

1986 saw the release of his debut record, Guitar Town, which shot to number one on the country charts and immediately established the term “New Country.” What followed was an extremely exciting and varied array of releases including the biting hard rock of Copperhead Road (1988), the minimalist beauty of Train A Comin’ (1995), the politically charged masterpiece, Jerusalem (2002) and the Grammy Award Winning albums The Revolution Starts…Now (2004), Washington Square Serenade (2007) and Townes (2009). I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive (2011) is Steve Earle’s 14th Studio Album and shares the same name with his 2011 debut novel. Of the novel, Patti Smith stated, “Steve Earle brings to his prose the same authenticity, poetic spirit and cinematic energy he projects in his music. I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive is like a dream you can’t shake, offering beauty and remorse, redemption in spades.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Are self-folding chairs permitted?
No, as of 2014 self-folding chairs are no longer permitted on site. We are switching from allowing self-folding chairs to providing seating for our guests. This allows us better control and maintenance of the space that is available for seating over the course of the evening. Self-folding chairs have never been a problem when attendance at the site is below capacity; however, as the festival grows, and with the recent experience of a sell out show, we recognized that we needed a better solution. Bleacher seating will be available throughout the site – including in the unlicensed section for the first time this year, and additional seating will be added in the licensed section as well.

Are umbrellas permitted?
No, umbrellas are not permitted. Umbrellas obstruct the view of other patrons. This is a bummer. The good news is that ponchos are welcome!

Do those under 19 years need to be accompanied by an adult and can they access areas where alcohol is sold or consumed?

Only those 12 years and under need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. IDs are checked to ensure access to the Licensed Area by those over 19 years of age only.

What are the hours of operation of the beverage service?

Beverage ticket sales end Friday & Saturday nights at 1:15 am with beverage service until 1:30 am. Beverage ticket sales end Sunday night at 12:45 am with beverage service until 1:00 am.

Are there wristbands?
Yes, wristbands are issued at the Main Gates upon ID checks and all patrons to the site must wear a wristband. No exceptions.

Are there time restrictions for those under 19 years?
No, anyone who has paid the admission fee is permitted to remain in the All Ages section of the site until the end of the program.
