Wolfe Island Music Festival is thrilled to announce its line-up for 2019. The festival will take place on August 9th and 10th and will feature stellar performances from the likes of Born Ruffians, The Sadies, NQ Arbuckle, and more. A full list of performers can be found below, with tickets on sale this Wednesday, June 19, at Eventbrite.com, Brian’s Record Option and Fargo’s General Store on Wolfe Island.
This year, the festival will take on a new format, dubbed The Hall Party Edition. Previous years have seen the fest occupy multiple venues in different locations across Wolfe Island – 2019 will bring the party to one exclusive venue – St Margaret’s Hall in Marysville Village – for two can’t-miss days of live music.
“We are also honouring our dear friend Darryl Weeks this year,” says Virginia Clark, Artistic Director of the festival. “He was a key member of our festival and last year he really loved our showcase at St Margaret’s Hall with The Weather Station, so we are returning to that same venue in his honour. It is going to be a hall party! Lots of fun and super intimate with a great mix of local artists with some Canadian legends.”
FULL LINE-UP: Born Ruffians, The Sadies, NQ Arbuckle, Jim Bryson, Ice Cream, Charlotte Cornfield, Emilie Steele, Joe McLeod, The Mill Rights, Piner
Located where Lake Ontario ends and the St. Lawrence River begins, Wolfe Island is the largest of the world-famous Thousand Islands. Only a 20-minute ferry ride from Kingston or Cape Vincent, the island acts as a natural boundary between Canada and the U.S. and is home to a number of fabulous annual events, such as the Wolfe Island Music Festival, which takes place every August.
Hey there! I’m Zach I love long walks on the beach and movies that make you cry. Wait a minute this isn’t my E-Harmony account. Let’s try this again, hi I’m Zach from Dawson Creek, BC. Before you think it, no it’s not like the TV show! I have loved music ever since I was a kid back in Abbotsford, BC where I was born. Moved up north when I was about six and was practically raised up here. Hands down one of my favorite Canadian band has to be Simple Plan, with Dallas Smith coming in second. One of my Favorite Things I enjoy doing is just sitting around listening to music or taking pictures. I’d say I’m a pretty good photographer but you can be the judge of that. Just even ask a couple of my friends City light vigil, Scarlet serenity or Violet night. If you’re still reading this congratulations you’ve reached the end.
