The festival runs from July 7th to 10th northwest of Moncton, New Brunswick in perhaps the best named town for a music festival that takes place in the Canadian summer: Beersville.
So get your camping gear, your friends and your car and head on over for a weekend that is sure to be one that you remember for quite some time to come. Remember that the festival is meant to be a good time for all involved, so be courteous to the other campers and listen to the rules that are meant to keep everyone safe.
