After six, exciting years in the UK, the BF Crew are thrilled to be bringing The Big Feastival to Canada this August. Delivering an extravaganza of delicious food, sound-tracked by perfect summer sounds, this weekend of top entertainment will host star appearances from the food, music and children’s entertainment world plus camping facilities in the idyllic Burl’s Creek in Oro-Medonte for festival-goers wanting to get back to nature, chill out and top off their big day out with a night under canvas.
Plans for this summer’s first-ever The Big Feastival Canada are in full swing, and the BF crew are bursting to tell you all that they have in store.  Here’s a little taste of what to expect:

BEN HARPER and THE INNOCENT CRIMINALS

It had been seven years since Ben Harper last played a show with the Innocent Criminals, so when the time came to reunite for a live tour in 2015, the band—percussionist Leon Mobley, bassist Juan Nelson, drummer Oliver Charles, keyboardist Jason Yates, and guitarist Michael Ward— quickly discovered that Harper had more in mind than simply revisiting the group’s prodigious collection of hits. In fact, Harper had been quietly amassing material for a new record, Call It What It Is, and the first recording sessions were scheduled to begin even before the rehearsals for their triumphant four-night sold-out reunion run at the Fillmore in San Francisco.
