Let The Bluesfest Begin

Chris Cornell, of Soundgarden

Tomorrow, the gooey music goodness begins. The two hazy weeks of festival attending finally commences; when humid evening flows into evening, sunkissed afternoons blend into eachother, and before you know it - you've seen over a dozen of your favourite acts and until next year, it's over.

Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest is only the most magical two weeks of the year here in Ottawa; a time when music lovers everywhere unite to revel in the best of the best of international music, almost shocked that so many brilliant musciians chose us Ottawa as the grounds to wow millions. People flock from all over to catch a glimpse of some fairly shocking attendees - who, in the past, have included: KISS, James Taylor, The White Stripes, Kanye West, Drake, Brian Wilson, and almost every single up-and-coming group known to mankind. Six on-site stages, a plethora of vendors and thousands of free-loving concert-goers pack Lebreton Flats to signal that the bands, and the essence of summer in Ottawa, has in fact come rollin' in.

Here's a few of who we can expect to fire us off to the races tomorrow, July 5th, on the opening night:

Carries On - Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros

Where Does The Good Go? - Tegan and Sara

Fell On Black Days - Soundgarden

Yeah Yeah Yeah Song - The Flaming Lips

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
