Now that it’s May and festival season is upon us, it’s time to get into the spirit and what better way is there to do that than the May Run Music Festival and Music PEI Awards in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island? Having attended and volunteered at the festival last year, I can tell you with first hand experience that the city puts on an amazing party all weekend long. With venues across the province and multiple shows a night, you will be hard pressed to find time to be bored.
You’ll want to get your tickets and passes as soon as you can because the showcases and venues do not take long to fill to capacity and you don’t want to risk missing your favourite acts. Passes for the entire festival are available for only $57.50, wristbands for Friday and Saturday Night Live are only $32.50, and tickets for individual shows are available between $12.00 and $32.50. Tickets can be purchased online here in advance of the festival. There are also hotel packages available in accordance with May Run, all information on those can be found on the festival website.
All this sounds amazing, right? It gets even better with the lineup that includes many of the Island’s own homegrown talent, and even a few friends from away. The weekend will have performances from Tim Chaisson, Dylan Menzie, Coyote, Kim Albert, War Horses, Royal North, Andy Brown, Briana Goss, and so many more.
The May Run Music Festival is taking place between May 18th and 22nd, with the Bell Aliant Canadian Song Conference also taking place between May 19th and 21st. You do not want to miss these four days packed with good music, great people, and amazing experiences.

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.
