Music festival adds Under the Covers portion for late night dancing

Cloggeroo, the ECMA-nominated music festival in Three Rivers, PEI, is celebrating its 10th year this summer. The annual festival takes place over three days, August 11–13, and features music, a beer garden, live sand-sculpting, camping, silent discos and more along the shores of the Brudenell River in Georgetown. 

The Wharf Rats

The Festival kicks off at the mainstage on Friday with performances by KINLEY, The Mellotones, and headlining act, The Barr Brothers. 

Cloggeroo’s new Under the Covers feature for late night dancing will feature well-known Maritime tribute bands. Wharf Rats, a Grateful Dead tribute band, will follow the mainstage acts on Friday night.

The pay-what-you-can, family friendly Saturday afternoon returns with live music by Big Country and Veranda, local food vendors, craft beer, cider and more on the waterfront. 

Saturday evening will feature Out From Under, Kellie Loder, The Town Heroes, and Adam Baldwin & the Jenny Wren on the mainstage, followed by another Under the Covers set with The Fabulously Rich, PEI’s own Tragically Hip tribute band.

Once the music on the mainstage is over, campers can jump on the free festival shuttle vans, put on some headphones and dance ‘til the wee hours at the campground-exclusive Silent Disco with DJ DMayne Event on Friday and DJ VClay on Saturday. 

On Sunday afternoon, Cloggeroo will feature an all blues show with Theresa Malenfant, Garrett Mason and Campbell & Johnston’s Black Market Band.
