Published Apr 13, 2011The Canadian festival circuit is gearing up for another busy summer, and in just the last two days, we've had lineup announcements from Osheaga, SappyFest and the Regina Folk Festival, among others. Next up is the Dawson City Music Festival in the Yukon.
The 33rd Dawson City Music Festival will take place from July 15 to 17. The performers already confirmed for the three-day event include Shout Out Out Out Out, Yukon Blonde, Shotgun Jimmie, Rich Aucoin and Amelia Curran.
The shows and workshops will take place at various venues around Dawson City, with daytime and evening gigs at the main stage in Minto Park. The Palace Grand Theatre will host concerts and workshops in the afternoons and evenings. St. Paul's Anglican Church, Danoja Zho Cultural Centre and Front St. Gazebo will hold events only during the afternoons.
Weekend passes are $125 and can be purchased here. As the festival points out, passes have sold out for 31 consecutive years, so be sure to buy early.
There are no single-evening tickets, although if you want to attend events before 6 p.m., single-daytime passes are $20 each and will be available at the venues.
