Music Festivals in Canada 2020

Canadian Music Festivals 2020

 

Last year, Listening Through The Lens was asked to publish a Canadian music festival list, as a corollary to (1) our USA festival catalog which has been going (and growing!) for about four years and (2) an Australian version which is into its second year.

Thanks to Treasa Levasseur, Canadian representative of Folk Alliance International, who kick started the offerings here through providing us with a significant number of events.

Since last year’s debut effort, the landscape has changed quite considerably.  A surprising number of events haven fallen off the perch, some festivals have moved their dates by multiple months and, even after thorough searching of relevant dedicated websites or Facebook pages, frankly it is hard to tell what’s happening at certain times.

Below is our list of 2020 festivals in Canada.  We will revisit these each month and mark this year’s dates once announced and any other changes so that what is presented here is as current and useful as possible.

Our version here has almost 300 festivals listed in date and alphabetical order, together with links for each one.

 

Any corrections or omissions, please drop a comment below or email us at team@listeningthroughthelens.com

 

Here’s our latest (and last) version of 2019 Canadian festivals.
