Much-awaited outdoor music festival Bluesfest is returning this July, and the freshly announced lineup looks absolutely fire.

The 10-day festival will be held in the LeBreton Flatts area of Ottawa from July 6 to July 16. It has been happening since 1994, and over a million Canadians camp out to watch their favourite musical acts perform each year.

RBC, a Bluesfest sponsor, announced the pretty extensive lineup on Wednesday. Ticket pre-sales will take place for one day only, starting at 10 am ET on Thursday.

Pre-sale ticket prices start at $249 (pre-tax) for the full festival, and VIP passes will be priced at $695.
