The list of festivals all over North America is amazing and here’s another one with a great lineup in the amazing city of Ottawa in Ontario Canada. This one does not require three days of shuttle buses, dirty camping or tickets in excess of $500. The only thing you’ll need if you’re American is a passport to cross the border.

The festival is technically two days on Saturday, June 29 and Sunday, June 30 but also extends into Monday, July 1 which is Canada Day. General admission tickets for the first two days are $129 or $168 for all three days. Single day tickets are also available for $89.

The festival runs from Noon until Midnight the first two days and is restricted to those 16 years old or older with valid government issued ID. Alcohol will be available and can be consumed anywhere on site. There is in/out privileges until 5pm, no re-entries will be allowed after 5pm. Re-entry is also subject to line-ups and security checks. That’s a feature not too many outdoor events offer!

The lineup isn’t too bad either featuring:
