Hamilton-based Arkells, with their traditional blues hooks mixed with rock-heavy riffs had the crowd singing alone to every word.

Conor Oberst is best known as the singer/songwriter behind the folk-rock band Bright Eyes. He played to an appreciative and enthusiastic crowd.

Playing his sensitive, intelligent introspective style that he is know for, David Gray drew one of the larger crowds of the night.

Dallas Green (aka City and Colour) played a solid show, his gorgeous voice and easy stage manner enchanting the sold-out crowd.
