It is hard to believe that Boots and Hearts 2018 has come and gone! The thousands in attendance at this annual country music festival, held at Burl’s Creek Event Grounds in Oro-Medonte, ON, were blessed with perfect weather conditions which made for one amazing weekend!
There were so many highlights from the 4-day festival which include Kris Barclay winning the 2018 Emerging Artist Showcase. We are certain the judges were left with the impossible task of choosing a winner from such an incredible group of up-and-coming artists, including semi-finalist Cory James Mitchell. Who could forget the headlining performances by Blackjack Billy, LOCASH, Dallas Smith, Florida Georgia Line, Alan Jackson, Brett Young, Billy Currington and Thomas Rhett?! Canadians were well represented on both the Main Stage and Front Porch Stage, including Meghan Patrick, James Barker Band, Lindsay Ell, Kira Isabella, Andrew Hyatt and local favourites Rob Watts Band! You can dive a little deeper into the highlights from Friday, Saturday and Sunday!
Florida Georgia Line
Republic Live has already started planning for next year’s festival. Save the date for August 8th-11th, 2019.

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.
