Boots and Hearts is celebrating its 5th year as the summer’s biggest country music festival. This 4-day event is just 3 months away and also features 2 pre-game parties for 1, once-in-a-lifetime experience that is not to be missed!
On August 4th – 7th, 2016, Burl’s Creek Event Grounds in Oro-Medonte (a short drive north of Toronto) plays host to this event that is run by Republic Live (Organizers of Wayhome Music & Arts Festival, Canada’s ‘Bonnaroo North’). The lineup includes country music heavyweights, Blake Shelton and Tim McGraw, and there are many notable Canadian country artists on the lineup as well, including Dean Brody, Tim Hicks, Emerson Drive, Autumn Hill, Madeline Merlo and local country band, Kansas Stone.
Kansas Stone got the pre-game party started last night at the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto for the KX & Boots & Hearts Hot Shots CMW Showcase alongside Blackjack Billy, Meghan Patrick, Eric Ethridge, James Barker Band and Dani Strong. This event is just one of many happening in Toronto this week for Canadian Music Week. On May 13th, The Ranch in Barrie will host the second pre-game party with a concert featuring Meghan Patrick, Eric Ethridge and James Barker Band. Both pre-game parties are exclusive to 2016 ticket purchasers.
The Countdown is on! With just 91 days left until the festival, both Tier 1 and Tier 2 tickets have been sold out. Visit http://bootsandhearts.com/ for festival information and to purchase festival tickets and venue campsites.
I’m Nicole, a biology teacher by day, but my life revolves around music. I’m that girl that you will always find with the concert t-shirt on and ear buds in. It is rare that you find me without some type of music playing in the background. I connect all of my life experiences to music. It truly has its own language in my heart. There is nothing more exciting than taking in all that a concert has to offer. I love to support local Canadian acts and attend as many shows that I can.
