It’s June in Ottawa and that means Festival Season is in full swing! First up, is the third annual Glowfair 2016, happening on Friday, June 17 and Saturday, June 18.
As usual there is a jam packed schedule complete with free street concerts, silent disco, DJ battles, larger than life art installations scattered throughout the blocks of Bank Street and live entertainment of all kinds.
Music Lineup at Glowfair 2016
For me, this is where it gets super exciting! Toronto trio Keys N Krates, who won the 2016 JUNO for Dance Recording of the Year, will headline on Glowfair’s Morguard Mainstage on Friday, June 17th. Dragonette (YASSSS!!!), who earned a JUNO in 2012, will take the mainstage on Saturday, June 18th. There are so many exciting bands coming this year, it’s insane! Most of all I am super excited to see, Halifax indie-rock genious, Rich Aucoin! I saw him almost 3 years ago at a Kos concert and fell hard!
The all-Canadian mainstage lineup also includes; Montreal’s dream popsters, Young Galaxy; The Balconies; Fevers; Montreal’s Caveboy and Vancouver’s Gang Signs. The DJ stage will feature this year’s JUNO nominee AutoErotique; Lissa Monet, KHAØS, Strange Future, DJ Grace, DJ Daisy & M. Caffrey, JUNO-nominated DJ Rise Ashen and Frayd.
Block themes at Glowfair
Block themes this year will include dazzling performances by Montreal performance artists, Black Mohawk; live DJing by JUMP-FM; and outdoor art gallery; a heritage-themed block; a truly bizarre bazaar; the popular Glowfit yoga; the Enchanted Forest; an expanded, two-block Kids’ Zone and screenings by the Ottawa International Animation Festival.
Ottawa Fashion at Glowfair
And because this is a fashion blog, I am leaving you with a few gorgeous Ottawa Street Style Photos taken at last year’s Glowfair by the ever talented John-Finnigan Lin of FinnSquare.com.
John was the first photographer I officially worked with for my blog, and helped me get stunning photos to start the whole thing. I owe him everything!
Watch for Ottawa Instagram Ambassadors who will be at Glowfair to capture you in your very best festival fashion!
