Go North Music Festival returns to St. Joseph Island on July 8/9, 2022

Earlier this week, Go North Music Festival announced the return of the annual festival and the official 2022 line-up. Set for Friday, July 8th & Saturday, July 9th, this year’s festival, held on beautiful St. Joseph Island, will feature an incredible group of Canadian talent including this year’s Saturday night headliners, JUNO award-winning rock band Crown Lands. The Saturday lineup also includes singer-songwriter Charlotte Cornfield (Rolling Stone recently called her Canada’s Best-Kept Secret), Thunder Bay rock’n’roll band The Honest Heart Collective, contemporary garage rock trio Royal Castles, rock group Taming Sari, Toronto rock band Goodnight Sunrise, Local Favourites The Uncanny Valley, and Cass FM.

This year the festival will kick off on Friday, July 8th with a special opening night concert at The Centennial Grounds featuring rootsy blues singer-songwriter Jay Pollmann. The Friday night concert can be paired with dinner from one of the amazing local restaurants. Make it a package deal including a taste of the Island, camping, and the show!

“After establishing the Go North Music Festival over our first three years, pausing for 2020 and 2021 was a big letdown,” shares Go North Chair, Jody Wildman. “When things started to look better for 2022, we made the decision that we were going to continue to expand the event with an increased budget for artists and the addition of an opening night concert on Friday. We think people are going to love this year’s line-up, all the vendors, and our great Family Zone activities. It’s going to be a great weekend to spend on St. Joseph Island.”

Go North Music Festival is a family-friendly event, featuring a variety of talented and critically acclaimed musical acts from across Canada, local artisans, local craft beer (including Northern Superior Brewing and Outspoken Brewing), and delicious food (including gluten-free and vegan options). The festival site, The Richards Landing Centennial Grounds, is a lush green space, nestled in the center of old-growth maple trees. The space was built for large events and offers wide-open spaces and room to stretch out and make a zone for you and your crew.

There are activities for kids and a kid’s stage with performances by select main stage acts. The family zone will feature a Science North interactive exhibit and has games, crafts, and a giant community mural project families can help with.

Plan your road trip to include overnight camping. Available Friday and Saturday night. This year they will again feature their “Fireside Jam” after hours.
