Creedence Clearwater Revival co-founder John Fogerty and Texas soul band Black Pumas are among the big names set to play this year’s CityFolk music festival in Ottawa.
Ottawa singer-songwriter Kathleen Edwards will also take the tsage at the Great Lawn at Lansdowne Park. The festival is scheduled for Sept. 8-10 and Sept. 15-17.
“It’s been a long time coming, but we’re delighted to finally be able to roll out a lineup of fantastic live acts,” CityFolk executive director Mark Monahan said in a news release.
“We’re grateful for the ongoing support we’ve seen over the years and we hope that this year’s high-end slate of performers will be viewed as a reward for the patience music fans in Ottawa have shown in recent years.”
An abbreviated version of the festival took place last year at Lansdowne.
