We wrapped up our summer festival season this past weekend with Lucknow’s Music in the Fields takeover of Graceland in Lucknow Ontario. There is no denying that this home grown festival deserves some serious recognition for not only bringing stellar lineups year after year but also for their involvement in the beautiful community of Lucknow. The Lucknow Kinsmen are a non-profit community organization and all money raised by initiatives like Lucknow’s Music in the Fields goes right back into their community to support charities, hospitals, schools and other various community projects. Over the past 9 years the Lucknow Kinsmen have been able to donate over 1 million dollars back into their community. A small town festival with HUGE heart if you ask us!
The much anticipated lineup for the 2017 edition of Lucknow Music in the Fields was announced this morning. Leading the 2017 lineup are Jake Owen, Tom Cochrane and Red Rider and Tim Hicks.
Looks like this year’s end of the summer bash in Lucknow, Ontario is setting up to be one heck of a party. And we are happy to be a part of it this year. Over the last couple years we have reported on how great an event has been but this year we are partnering with Lucknow to bring you unprecedented coverage to one of the best parties in Ontario this summer. So here is your 2016 Line Up….
This past weekend we had a chance to spend 2 days in the small town of Lucknow, Ontario. For those of you not sure where this quaint little town is. Lucknow is located just over an hour North-West of Kitchener/ Waterloo. Before I get started we want to thank all the amazing volunteers who put this fantastic weekend together. With over 600+ volunteers pulling together to make this my personal favourite of the busy summer season. This was our 2nd year making the 1h 35min drive to take in some of Country’s biggest names.
Well, as we all know the summer is coming to a close and there aren’t many festivals left on the calendar. However one of my favourite events of the year is a mere 3 days away. Lucknow MITF kicks off its 7th year on Friday night with another fantastic weekend of country music lined up.
