For the first time ever in its 21-year history, the annual Burnaby Blues & Roots festival will span two days this year, taking place on the lawns of Deer Lake Park on August 7 and 8.
Although the festival usually just runs on a Saturday, this is the first year that the festival is running on both Friday and Saturday. Located right near City Hall in Burnaby, Burnaby Blues & Roots will feature three different stages, a market, and vendors to buy food, wine, and beer.
The outdoor, all-ages festival features so many fantastic artists, with Friday lead by Nashville songwriting legend, Steve Earle & The Dukes. Saturday will be headlined by five-time Grammy Award–winning singer, songwriter, performer, and producer, Brandi Carlile.
Other performers include St. Paul and The Broken Bones, Colter Wall, Black Pumas, Son Little, Amigo the Devil, Tonye Aganaba, and Jeremie Albino.
Gates open at 5 pm on Friday, so you can start the night early and enjoy the music against the backdrop of the setting sun. Music starts up again at noon on Saturday, and with plenty of lunch options and treats on offer, be ready to make this an all-day affair.
