OTTAWA, Feb. 10, 2014 /CNW/ - ARKELLS will headline a free concert June 21st, confirmed organizers of North America's largest dragon boat festival. Joining them will be Hey Ocean, Northcote and Amos The Transparent.
ARKELLS have become one of Canada's most acclaimed alternative rock
outfits. Touring coast-to-coast, they quickly garnered attention for
their foot-stomping, adrenaline infused live shows, impressing fans and
critics alike and earning them several coveted music awards along the
way, including the 2012 JUNO for Group of The Year. ARKELLS continued
to win new fans over throughout 2013 with their infectious performances
both at home and abroad, most recently touring with Lights, Billy
Talent, and The Tragically Hip. The ARKELLS new album is slated for
release in Fall 2014.
"We are very pleased to have the ARKELLS headlining" says Antony Cooper,
the festivals artistic director. "Hey Ocean are a spectacular addition,
as are Ottawa based Northcote and Amos The Transparent. It should be a
great night that you don't want to miss."
Taking place June 19 to 22 at beautiful Mooney's Bay Park, the festival is a chance to see 5,000
dragon-boat paddlers compete on the Rideau River, enjoy some fantastic
free entertainment and have a great time at the beach.
