Big Music Fest Returns To Kitchener
Today involved heading to Kitchener City Hall for Media Coverage of the Big Music Fest 2015 Media Launch. The artists performing at this year's event were announced over the lunch hour and I did my best to tweet it all in real time!
It began with the Master Of Ceremonies, Mayor Berry Vrabnovic describing how last year's Big Music Fest came to be and that we should be looking forward to this year's event.
Other local dignitaries took to the podium to let us know that Kitchener Ontario wants to focus on Arts and Culture and that Big Music Fest will be an expanded festival this year. This year's event will also include a Food Festival as well as a Film Festival.
See Who Is Headed To Kitchener For Big Music FestThe theme for Big Music Fest 2015 is CLASS AND KICK ASS. Once again Big Music Fest will be hosting the Breaking Bands event on the Friday night of the music festival. After the announcement about the Friday night kick off event, they annouced the CLASS ACT.
Rod Stewart And Blondie with Mathew Curry and Mark Ballas will be taking the stage on the final day of Big Music Fest, Sunday July 12 2015.
I had the opportunity to see Rod Stewart many moons ago at the CNE Grandstand. He put on a spectacular show! Lots of energy and audience interaction, including his signature soccer ball launching.
As for the KICK ASS portion of this year's Big Music Fest they brought in some big guns
Soundgarden And Janes Addiction with Monster Truck and Extreme will be performing on Saturday July 11 2015 at McLennan Park Kitchener Ontario Canada!
I have been a big fan of Chris Cornell both as a solo artist and as lead singer of some fantastic bands, but have yet to see him perform live. I did however see Extreme perform in Toronto in the early 90s and they were great!
Plus there will still be more performers added to this! We can't wait to see which groups will be also be playing at the multiple day music festival!
