Riverfest Elora announces 2016 lineup

By: Staff –

RIVERFEST-POSTER-2016-OutlineRiverfest Elora has announced the lineup for it’s 2016 edition.

The outdoor festival, which is set to take place in Elora, ON from August 19-21, is held along the banks of the Grand River, has come a long way since its humble beginnings just eight years ago. Riverfest, which started as a backyard festival in 2009 with an attendance of around 700 people, has grown exponentially in recent years and saw crowds of over 4-5,000 a day during the last few installments.

Headlining this year’s festival are Walk Off The Earth, and Chromeo. Other performing artists include: Dear Rouge, Matthew Good, Dilly Dally, The Rural Alberta Advantage, Kardinal Offishall, and more. Check out the full lineup below.

The festival has also added a third stage with the addition of Dine Alone Records’ Wax On Wheels Stage, along with an afterparty program, which will see artistic performances by artists such as Tupper Ware Remix Party throughout various venues in downtown Elora, ON. After party wristbands ($10) are a great way to experience more of what Elora has to offer and allow revellers to bounce back and forth between venues. Stay tuned to the website for the full after party schedule to be posted in the coming weeks.

Due to growing demand for camping during the Riverfest weekend, organizers have also arranged an overflow camping area. This tent city will allow festival goers to have a place to rest their heads after days of basking in the glory that is Riverfest Elora.

Tickets are now onside for the pre-sale price of $115, with tickets going up to $140 on May 1st. Buy tickets here.
