MGMT – GOGOL BORDELLO – MONSTER TRUCK – MOTHER MOTHER – K.FLAY – SLOAN – USS + 46 more acts to perform at Riverfest Elora 2017!
Elora’s little festival that could has become one of Canada’s premier boutique festivals over the last nine years, offering top tier headliners, up-and-coming indie bands, artisans, food trucks and craft brews, all within a majestically natural setting along the banks of the famed Grand River.
The outdoor festival has come a long way since its humble beginnings just nine years ago. Riverfest, which started as a backyard festival in 2009 with an attendance of around 700 people, has grown exponentially in recent years and saw crowds of over 5,000 a day during the last few installments.
Following the successes of the past few festivals, which included performances by Blue Rodeo, Metric, Chromeo, The Sheepdogs, Serena Ryder, Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Sam Roberts Band, Walk Off The Earth, Arkells, New Pornographers, Donovan Woods, Bahamas and more, Riverfest Elora is enjoying the continued support it has been getting through its ongoing community and artistic partnerships and the unwavering support of Elora’s small but mighty regional community.
2017 will mark the third year of Riverfest Elora’s continued partnership with Dine Alone Records, who will be presenting the Dine Alone Records’ Wax On Wheels Stage. The stage will showcase some of the region’s most exciting emerging talent, as well as host meet and greets sessions by some of the larger acts at the festival. Dine Alone’s Wax On Wheels pop up record shop was built from the shell of a simple 16 ft. trailer and transformed into a fully functioning record store with an awning-covered patio.
AFTER PARTIES! After party wristbands ($10) are a great way to experience more of what Elora has to offer and allow revellers to bounce back and forth between unique venues around the village. Stay tuned to the website for the full after party schedule to be posted in the coming weeks.
CAMPING! Due to continued demand for camping during the Riverfest weekend, organizers have arranged for an overflow camping area! This tent city will allow festival goers to have a place to rest their heads after days of basking in the glory that is Riverfest Elora.
