This year’s RBC Bluesfest runs from July 6-16, 2017 at Lebreton Flats.
Here’s our small list of unconfirmed rumours and plausible speculation about possible acts this summer. You can add to this list by posting in the comments below.
- Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. They have a 40th anniversary tour with a Toronto date on July 15… and nothing scheduled for the 9 days before.
- Commenter Luds notes: “Iron Maiden plays a gig in St Louis on July 12th and then in Toronto & Quebec on July 15th and 16th. They may be able to fit a gig at Bluesfest on the 14th, they’ve done it twice before.”
- Muse is in Quebec City on July 16… perhaps stop by Ottawa first?
- Another good source for news and rumours is the Ottawa Bluesfest Fan Page.
The official line-up is usually announced in late-March / early-April.
Update Feb. 15, 2017: A news conference is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 21 to discuss line-up details.
