This June marks Westfest’s 15th year bringing music and art to Hintonburg, and it’s celebrating with an extensive lineup. 30 acts will be gracing the Westfest stages at Tom Brown Arena and Park from June 8 – 10, with plenty of amazing food and art in between.

The free festival will once again feature a community stage, the indigenous pavilion, and plenty of family activities. New installments in the weekend include multiple after-parties and a panel discussion called “Cross Community Collaborations.”

Some of this year’s lineup includes Bear Witness (A Tribe Called Red), Cody Coyote, The Pursuit of Happiness, Every Woman Drum, Silla + Rise, DJ Del Pilar, Julie Corrigan, River City Junction, King Kimbit, Bad Parent and Iyono Ede & The Leaning Lights to name a few. Considering the breadth of free entertainment to take in this year, this is one anniversary that will be hard to miss.
