Riverfest Elora is set to sail down the banks of the Grand River into view once again this summer, and organizers have unveiled the lineup for their 13th edition.

Taking place at Elora's Bissell Park from August 18 to 20, Riverfest Elora 2023 will welcome Metric, Feist and the Reklaws to town, with Charlotte Cardin, JJ Wilde and Matt Mays following closely behind.

Look further down the lineup, and you'll find festival faves old and new like Talk, SonReal, Rêve, Leif Vollebekk, the Aggrolites, the Darcys, Shred Kelly, Fast Romantics, Birds of Bellwoods, Skye Wallace, myst milano., Vince the Messenger and more.

Once again, Riverfest Elora has continued its pledge to Keychange, "an international gender equality campaign which encourages festivals, conferences and other music organizations to strive for a balanced gender representation in their programming, staffing and beyond."

Environmentally, the fest has also ensured the event remains 100 percent packaged water-free for the ninth straight edition, thanks to its partnership with Wellington Water Watchers, the Township of Centre Wellington and Quench Buggy.

Weekend passes to Riverfest Elora 2023 are now on sale for $150, a price that increases to $165 beginning May 1. Further details surrounding single-day, Riverfest Plus and afterparty passes can be found via the festival's official website.
