One of New Brunswick’s premiere festivals is now accepting artist submissions for its 2019 event, set to take place May 16-19 in the seaside community of St. Andrews.

For over 20 years now, Paddlefest has offered New Brunswickers their first taste of outdoor music kicking off an impressive series of outdoor festivals that take place across the province. With a mainstage tented venue in center of town and several performances taking place throughout the surrounding area (past years have included performances on Minister’s Island, a National Historic Site accessible only at low tide), Paddlefest has earned recognition as one of the most unique outdoor festivals in New Brunswick.

Past performers include the Joel Plaskett Emergency, The Barr Brothers, Les Hay Babies, Kill Chicago, Plants and Animals, Ron Hynes, The Strumbellas, Elliot Brood, The Stanfields and others.

The deadline for artist submissions is January 15, 2019.
