2011 Hillside Festival Lineup Announced

Guelph, ON will always be linked with indie rock in my mind because of Hillside Festival. I have memories of my High School friends who would come back from the festival with stories about who they saw and how great it all was. This year’s lineup was recently announced, and as usual it’s a veritable who’s who of Canadian talent. Some of our favourites are playing, including: Dan Mangan, Rural Alberta Advantage, Hannah Georgas, and more.

The fest takes place at the Guelph Lake Conservation Area July 22nd to the 24th. Tickets are on sale May 7th via Ticketpro.ca and  Soundscapes in Toronto. Click through for a full list of performers.
