The highly anticipated lineup for the 2017 edition of the RBC Bluesfest was announced this week featuring a stellar lineup of both Canadian and international artists. “To celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary, we’ve put together one of our best lineups ever…and one of Ottawa’s favourite sons (Dan Aykroyd) seems to agree,” said RBC Bluesfest Executive and Artistic Director, Mark Monahan.
The lineup includes headliners Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Muse, and P!nk, as well as LCD Soundsystem, Flume, Toby Keith, 50 Cent, and Jake Owen. Other notable acts include Melissa Ethridge, Tegan and Sara, Sam Roberts Band, Phantogram, Death from Above 1979, July Talk, A Tribe Called Red, and many more.
The 2017 edition of the RBC Bluesfest runs from July 6 to 16 at LeBreton Flats Park, which offers a wide variety of food and merchandise concessions and is fully licensed.

I’ve been involved in music my whole life and have developed a passion for helping out or working in the industry any way I can. I’m interested in helping talented artists gain the recognition they deserve in this crazy business. I am currently studying Communication Studies at York University in Toronto, and working at a local theatre doing marketing and communications, as well as helping out a local festival called Rock the Coliseum. Indie, alt-rock/pop, and metal are my favourites but I’m open to all music genres! If I’m not at a show, I’m doing yoga, grabbing coffee, or looking for some craft beer.
