Kanye West, Iggy Azalea, Keith Urban & More Tackle RBC Ottawa Bluesfest
The RBC BluesFest in Ottawa is already underway, but there's still plenty more music coming to Canada this week. After a rousing performance from Jason Aldean on Thursday night (July 9), more stars will descend upon Ottawa, including Kanye West, Iggy Azalea, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Keith Urban and more.
The genre bending RBC BluesFest kicked off on Wednesday with a lead-in night featuring a stacked lineup that included Jack U, Kiesza and A$AP Ferg. And though its two days in, there's still plenty of music to be heard.
Tonight (July 10), West will headline the festival, just weeks after tackling Glastonbury. The RBC BluesFest blends together three major musical markets in Canada, bringing together country, rock and hip-hop. In addition to the previously listed headliners, everyone from Future Islands to Run the Jewels to Brantley Gilbert will be performing over the next week.
Other artists on the lineup include The Gaslight Anthem, CeeLo Green, Deep Purple, Interpol, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Richard Thompson, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Purity Ring and more. Check out the full lineup on the festival's website.
Though the festival is already underway, single day and "Pick 3" tickets are still available for patrons, starting at CA$55. The Pick 3 option allows fans to enter in the festival for three unique dates throughout the fest's 11 nights.
This year marks the 21st year of the RBC BluesFest, which brings over 300,000 music fans to the Lebreton Flats in Ottawa.
