A cross-Canada tour of Canadian festivals 2022

0

The summer festival season is now officially over but the memories will live on for everyone who got to finally bask in an atmosphere of live music and community after two summers of deprivation.

Here at Roots Music Canada, we have a tradition of covering festivals all across Canada, and we revived that this year with the return of the events.

All told 17 writers filed more than 50 reports from 16 festivals.

Not bad for our first time back in two years!

If you were too busy attending festivals to read about them, the good news is, now is your chance to catch up.

Here are links to all of our summer festival stories for you to check out.
