Beck, Foo Fighters, and Dave Matthews Band to Headline Ottawa Bluesfest Lineup

The lineup includes rock veterans and hip-hop legends.

The Ottawa Bluesfest has announced its 2018 lineup, and while blues is in its name, the festival’s lineup seems to have no boundaries in choosing its artists this year.

While its top spots are dedicated to more traditional rock, indie, and folk-inspired artists like Beck, Foo Fighters, and Dave Matthews, the list also stretch to names like Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah, electro-pop singer Kimbra, and female MC and neo-R&B artist Noname.

The festival’s wide range may have something to do with the fact that it spans a total of ten days, starting on July 5 and ending on July 15 in LeBreton Flats Park in Ottawa, Ontario.

For artists like Beck, the festival stop is one of many, as the artist will embark on a world tour starting later this month. Fellow headliner the Foo Fighters have also squeezed the date into a pre-existing tour schedule that will also begin within the next two weeks.

Tickets for Bluesfest go on sale Friday (Feb. 16), with presale beginning the day before. One day tickets start at $109, and are based on aged group tiers, which increase in price as the age goes up. For full lineup and ticket pricing, head to the festival’s site.
