First Wave of Bands Released for 2016!


Sunday April 24rd, 2016


 Folk on the Rocks (FOTR) is over the moon to reveal part of this year’s line-up for the 2016 festival! Our board has worked very hard over the winter months to bring you a diverse program of artists from across Canada.

The line up FOTR has crafted spans the full spectrum of genres and explores Canada’s diversity. No one artist can be pegged to a specific genre, which speaks to the level of talent that will grace the FOTR stages this summer.

Over the last four months, the FOTR Selections Committee has worked tirelessly to create a line up that brings a little something for everyone to enjoy: rock, blues, funk, soul, hip hop, bluegrass, folk, electronic, to name a few. The 2016 line up reflects a culturally diverse line up from coast to coast to coast that encapsulates Canada’s multiculturalism.

The following is just a snippet of artists who will be coming this summer. Over the coming weeks, through social media and our website, FOTR will be announcing the remaining acts for this year’s festival.
