Big Red Music Festival is rocking Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island again this year. After last year having acts such as Serena Ryder, Great Big Sea, Our Lady Peace, Faber Drive, and Hedley, they promised an even bigger, better Big Red this year.
The first round of artists was announced on April 16th. With more artists being announced in the near future, the lineup so far is:
Saturday, June 28th
· Marianas Trench
· Bridgit Mendler
Sunday, June 19th
· Sam Roberts Band
· Hey Rosetta!
· Adam Baldwin
· North Lakes
Keep an eye out on Big Red’s social media for the upcoming announcement of more artists for this year’s event. Tickets go on sale on Friday, April 25th and 10 am AST. If you have a chance to see the festival, I highly recommend you go. Last year was absolutely amazing despite the weather all weekend long. With the 2014 celebrations, this year is sure to be better. All information on tickets and accommodations should you travel from out of province is available on their website http://bigredfest.ca/.

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
