Ottawa’s Bluesfest Returns Today Following the 2-Year Pandemic Hiatus


The world seemed much darker during the coronavirus pandemic. Luckily, times are brighter now, and it's matched with the summer's rays. In addition, the light is shinning on Ottawa's Bluesfest as it's making a 'historic comeback' in the words of the organizers. 

Despite its hiatus dating back to 2019, the hardworking team behind the festival is eager for it to make its triumphant return. Starting today, July 7th, 2022, dedicated fans will flock to the beloved LeBreton Flats grounds to participate in this monumental occasion!

Although an abbreviated version of the festival took place last fall at Landsdowne Park, something simply felt off for a lot of its devoted partygoers. Like most, we've discovered that this was due to it being held at another location other than its original home..

As one can imagine, after a 2-year interval, there will be some changes on the horizon. This year, Bluesfest is going cashless; therefore, all vendors (food, beverages and merchandise) are equipped to accept Interac, all major credit cards, Apple Pay, and Google Pay. 

Additionally, there have been some recent changes to its lineup. To our delight, the one highly-anticipated dance music act we've had on our radar has not been modified: Marshmello. The praised producer is set to perform on July 12th, 2022! We look forward to hearing some of his biggest singles live.

Regardless of these adjustments, if you purchased a pass in 2020, the organizers have guaranteed that it will be honoured this year. Keep it locked to Bluesfest's official app, website and socials for more related details. We look forward to feeling 'Happier' on the dance floor 'Together' very soon!
