Behold the line-up for the 2020 edition of Ottawa Bluesfest. Wow.

There are precious few successful summer music festival events in this country. Ottawa Bluesfest is one. Check out this lineup:

  • Rage Against the Machine
  • Blink-182
  • Alanis Morissette
  • Jack Johnson
  • Marshmello
  • King Crimson
  • Billy Talent
  • Garbage
  • Blue Rodeo
  • The Saints and Sinners Tour (Headstones, Big Wreck, Tea Party, and Moist)
  • Dashboard Confessional
  • New Pornographers
  • Arrested Development
  • Travis Tritt
  • July Talk
  • And a billion more.

Here’s the poster for 2020.

Tickets range in price from $105 for a day pass to $600 for a full festival VIP pass. (At that price, it would be cheaper to buy a day pass to see Rage Against the Machine than buy a ticket to see them on their own at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.)
