Lucknow’s Music in the Fields will once again kick off the festival with the “Thursday Night Throw-Down” featuring Meghan Patrick. The Emerging Artist Showdown will be back, where today’s up and coming artists can showcase their talent on the Sepoy Saloon Side stage.
Much has changed for 2017, most importantly moving the venue to a new site. Still within the limits of Lucknow, the entire festival will be at “Graceland”, including all campsites, which means everyone will have easy access to the festival grounds.
Other new experiences include: additional drink selection from Craft breweries and wineries, which will augment the traditional Sepoy Saloon selections; and a new all-ages festival grounds.
We believe that Lucknow’s Music in the Fields is largely unique from many other festivals. Showcasing world-class country music artists with a cross-section of established and rising acts, we bring the stars to small-town Ontario. Not many villages can speak to the talent that has performed at Lucknow’s Music in the Fields, but it has developed into so much more than a music festival," says Marketing Director Steve Neeb. "Despite all of the changes, it remains the same intimate, family-friendly festival, with 100 per cent of the proceeds going to charity."
