Category: community 246

Harvest Music Festival is back with a sensational lineup of award-winning performers for fans to enjoy in downtown Fredericton on September 10-15, 2024. 

After post-tropical storm Lee brought an early end to Harvest Music Festival’s 2023 event, Fredericton’s largest music festival returns with one of its most impressive lineups in recent memory.

This year’s artists include the rock, indie, blues and Americana headliners that hardcore Harvest fans have come to love and expect, including Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit, Spoon, Warren Haynes Band, Victor Wooten and The Wooten Brothers, Brittney Spencer, Maggie Rose, Alejandro Escovedo, and a special appearance by Friends of the Brothers. 

Harvest is also excited to share a once-in-a-generation lineup of essential and influential Canadian headline artists and songwriters, who collectively have won 58 Juno awards. This includes a double bill of Feist and Broken Social Scene, a reunion of Colin James and the Little Big Band, Big Sugar, July Talk, Sarah Harmer, Julie Doiron, Jim Cuddy Band, Skydiggers, Matthew Good, Half Moon Run, Matt Minglewood and the Tragically Hip’s Paul Langlois Band. 

Harvest’s generational lineup of Canadian icons includes some incredible tributes, including a 50th anniversary performance of Joni Mitchell’s Court and Spark by Fredericton’s own Kylie Fox, along with a gallery of bonafide stars and exciting up and comers. 

“We are beyond excited to present this carefully curated group of Grammy and Juno award-winning artists in Fredericton,” said Festival Music Director Brent Staeben. “They are all storied songwriters and captivating performers who are as thrilled to play for Fredericton’s amazing audiences as we are to welcome them.” 

Other artists in this year’s festival include: Too Many Zooz, Pretty in Pink, Wharf Rats, Julian Taylor Band, Joanna Connor, GA-20, Laney Jones and the Spirits, Ian Janes, The Liquor Store with Stephen Lewis, Apollo Suns, The Barrowdowns, The Hello Crows, Chanterelles, Campbell and Johnston, the Downtown Blues Band and many more. 

The festival is also proud to offer an intimate listening experience at the Wilmot Church stage in 2024. 

The 2024 event takes place on the shores of the Wolastoq River in downtown Fredericton, featuring the Blues Tent behind City Hall, Barracks Stage in the historic Garrison District, a newly designed Mojo Tent in Officer’s Square, shows at Wilmot Church and the soft-seat Fredericton Playhouse, a pubs and clubs series, performances on the Tony George Jazz Stage at the Hilton Garden Inn Fredericton Downtown, along with free programming, the return of Kids Fest, food vendors and buskers on Queen Street and the Carleton Street Extension.
