River & Sky Festival have announced their 2016 lineup. The festival which takes place over four days (July 14 - 17) this year is located at Fisher’s Paradise in Field, a small small town just east of North Bay on the Sturgeon River. Having attended last year and in previous years I will vouch for the Fest’s community vibe, one that is open and welcoming, one that marries music and sustainability. It has grown over its eight years but it has stayed accessible, intimate and friendly. R&S is the art of the festival and the R&S crew are skilled crafters.
Hey Rosetta headline Thursday, METZ headline Friday, The Sadies headline Saturday and Basia Bulat headline Sunday. Spread across the four day bill are Bry Webb & The Providers, Steve Lambke, Nap Eyes, TOPS, Language Arts, Beach Fossils, OUGHT, Hidden Roots, Amie Sumi, and as they say many many more. There will also be DJs playing at night in the forest around the campsites and stages.
