Guest who’s giving away Bluesfest tickets??
Canada Day is just around the corner and Rumours Nightclub is bringing you another great event!! Paying homage to our nations capital I figured it would only make sense to tie in Ottawa to this event. I originally thought of giving away a pair of bus passes and a night stay but then I discovered the Ottawa Bluesfest!!!
Prior to this event I had no idea what the Bluesfest even was… Thank god for my DJ. For those who don’t know DJ Oz-E’s hometown is Ottawa and when I was putting this event together I spoke to Oz-E asking him what’s there to do in Ottawa as pair of bus passes sound so boring, not to mention cheap. He mentioned the Bluesfest and the rest is history.
To give you the Coles note version of the festival, it all began in 1994 when 5,000 people showed up for an outdoor music festival somewhere in Ottawa. That 5,000 then has now grown to 300,000 today… You can call this the Canadian version of Coachella/Bonnaroo.
The festival goes on for 10 days. Tickets are sold 10 different ways with another 10 different packages. Check out this link for full ticket details: http://ottawabluesfest.ca/tickets/. The name is little misleading. Yes they there will be some blues bands but you will also find rock, pop, folk and all kinds of other genres of music.
For example this year some of the artists that will be playing are The Black Keys, Wu-Tang Clan, Fun, Rush and B.B King. That’s just to name a few as there are over 200 bands/artists playing this year.
Now there’s only one thing left to do… come down to Rumours and win you a pair of tickets! The event will be on Sunday June 30th. There will be a small cover charge of $5. DJ Oz-E will be at the helm spinning your favorite dance, hip-hop and top 40 mixes. Check out our website or FB page for more details. You can find our links at the bottom of this blog. There will also be a guest list to sign up on to help avoid the line up.
Thanks for reading…
