Some of the biggest names in country music are headed for Bowmanville, Ont., this summer for the Boots and Hearts Music Festival.
Tim McGraw, Kid Rock, Carrie Underwood and Alabama are just a few of the names on the marquee for the three-day music jamboree to be held on Aug. 10-12 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, one hour east of Toronto. The music and arts festival promises to have a variety of country music from bona-fide superstars to up-and-coming talent. And, with camping facilities available, it is promising to be a good-time weekend for all.
“We have three full days of country music on two stages, tailgates, barbecues, and all kinds of activities throughout the day to keep fans entertained,” says Shannon McNevan, executive director for festival producer Republic Live. “And just when other music festivals call it a night, Boots and Hearts will ramp things up with nightly after-parties. It’s definitely shaping up to be the party of the summer.”
Boots and Hearts Music Festival
Producers are promising “the largest country music festival of its kind ever to be hosted on Canadian soil.” A three-day celebration of music and art, Boots and Hearts will offer country-music fans an opportunity to be part of an experience they are not likely to forget.
“Canadians deserve a festival where they can enjoy the very best country music has to offer and camp with their friends and family without having to travel to the United States,” McNevan says.
Tickets for the three-day festival cost $210 or $115 per day. Camping passes are available for $71 per person (no vehicle), $91 (includes vehicle), $35 for an additional vehicle and $26 for access to shower facilities. VIP passes are also available. Children under 11 years of age are admitted free when accompanied by a parent. Prices quoted do not include applicable taxes or service fees.
