Midsummer Madness is Kingston, New Brunswick’s answer to The Life of Pi. You’re going to show up, get lost, rediscover your spirituality, see some weird stuff, and possibly narrowly avoid being eaten by a tiger, all before finding your way home again. It’s generally a positive experience. Naturally, some of the better parts feature music, and today the festival announced their 2017 line-up.
Devin Erb, one of the organizers for Midsummer Madness, says that he is confident that this year’s line-up is the best they’ve had yet, bringing in headliners That 1 Guy and Holy Fuck. He states that they’ve also invested time working on Shakedown Ranch where the event is held annually, with an unconfirmed possibility of upgrades to the facilities.
“We have plans to expand on our electrofusion stage, yurt and more as well as upgrades to the roadways, expansions to the campgrounds so they won’t be as crowded. We’re really working to make this year unlike any other,” says Erb.
For your listening pleasure we’ve provided a convenient list of this year’s performers.
That 1 Guy
House of David Gang
