Japandroids, Stars, Shad and More to Headline Guelph, ON's Hillside Festival
If your summer music festival plans are not yet set in stone, here's a new contender for your hard-earned cash. The organizers of Hillside Festival in Guelph, ON have revealed this year's line-up, and it's stacked with Canadian and international talent.

Among the most notable acts on the bill are Japandroids, Stars, Sarah Harmer, Gord Downie and the Country of Miracles, Calexico, Shad, the Hidden Cameras, Jason Collett and Zeus. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to see all of the artists that have been announced so far.

The event will take place from July 23 to 25 at Guelph Lake Island, with tickets going on sale this Saturday (May 1) at 10 a.m. EST. They will set you back $99 for a weekend pass and $69 for a day, unless you happen to be under 12, in which case it's free (and you should probably be at school right now). If you're one of the first 500 seniors, you'll get a weekend pass for a half price discount of $49.50.

You can buy tickets at Ticketpro or by phone at 1-866-598-4455. For a list of retailers who carry tickets, go to the Hillside official website.
