At long last, the full artist 2020 lineup for the ninth annual Boots and Hearts Music Festival was announced after a month of teasers leading up to the big reveal. The lineup was released on the newly revamped Boots and Hearts app and has been generating lots of buzz from festival fans who have been chatting it up on social media all day.
Here are 2020 the headliners:
Thursday: Granger Smith featuring Earl Dibbles Jr., and Jon Langston
Friday: Jon Pardi and Dustin Lynch
Saturday: Dan + Shay and Alessia Cara
Sunday: Eric Church and Brothers Osborne
Other highlights include David Boyd Janes performing at the Thursday night kick-off party as the winner of the 2019 Emerging Artist Showcase, and other amazing Canadian talent including Meghan Patrick, Kalsey Kulyk, Jojo Mason, Aaron Goodvin and Sykamore!
Much of the buzz has been around the obvious addition of cross-genre acts like Grammy-winning Alessia Cara. Our guess is that Boots and Hearts is trying appeal to a variety of different people, not just the country music purists, as a current trend in country music is fusion with other genres like rap, R&B and pop.
“In today’s music landscape, fans are exposed to multi-genre playlists and cross-genre singles as a means to discover new artists,” said Eva Dunford, Co-Founder. “We are proud to have pop powerhouse Alessia Cara, one of Canada’s top female artists, share the main stage with award winning duo Dan + Shay, whose recent singles have been both country and pop chart-toppers.”
Besides, we are super stoked to have the opportunity to check out fellow Canadian Alessia Cara on Saturday night of the festival!

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.
