Independent Canadian label Royal Mountain Records has been on a roll, releasing records from Mac DeMarco, U.S. Girls, Ought and more in the Great White North. Now, it's set to put its talented roster on display with a new all-label festival.

Partnering with live events company Lower Level, the label will present Royal Mountain at Rasberry Farm at Hamilton's Royal Botanical Gardens on September 2.

The single-day, all-ages event will feature a headlining performance from Mac DeMarco, with the Finn Wolfhard-led Calpurnia, U.S. Girls, Ought, Dizzy, TUNS, Little Junior and Everett Bird following closely behind.

A press release notes that Royal Mountain at Rasberry Farm will provide "a back-to-basics concert experience, where music fans can simply enjoy live music, surrounded by exquisite gardens and shady trees."

The event will also feature food and beverages from Ontario based vendors, with fans encouraged to show up early to enjoy the arboretum's natural beauty and 10 kilometres of walking trails.

A ticket pre-sale will take place from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. local time on Thursday (March 1), where fans can get tickets using the password "goodvibes." Tickets will then go on sale to the general public on Friday and will cost $52.50, plus fees.

DeMarco delivered his This Old Dog LP through Royal Mountain in Canada last year, while Ought and U.S. Girls released full-lengths through the label this year with Room Inside the World and In a Poem Unlimited, respectively. Calpurnia announced they had signed to the label in November of last year.
