In true Canadian spirit, me and the girls just went to the Big Music Fest in Wiarton, Ontario (true North!!) The all Canadian line-up included; The Spades, Arkells, Sam Roberts Band, and The Tragically Hip, who performed at the Wiarton airfield. It was Wiarton’s first ever festival with an estimated 15,000 turn out.
It was a long day- bands scheduled to begin at 3pm didn’t go on until just after 5 and performed until about 11pm. Sunny and hot, Wiarton didn’t disappoint! The sunset was a gorgeous backdrop for the Hip as they performed. Lead man Gordon Downie was amazing- dancing with a white hankie throughout the entire performance!! Went with another virgin to concerts; my cousin Mallory!! Must admit, I love these newbies!!!!
