Annual summer festival celebrates its 10th year in August
The folks at Cloggeroo are gearing up for their tenth annual summer music festival along the shores of the Brudenell River in Three Rivers, PEI. Nominated for Event of the Year at this year’s ECMAs, Cloggeroo will once again host some of Canada’s best musical talent over three days in August.
This summer’s lineup includes The Barr Brothers, The Mellotones, the Town Heroes, ECMA 2023 Award winner Adam Baldwin (Song of the Year) and his band the Jenny Wren, and Newfoundland’s Kellie Loder, winner of two ECMAs (Songwriter of the Year, Fan’s Choice Entertainer of the Year).
The Festival will also bring back sand sculptor “Mediocre” Abe Waterman this summer for live sand carving next to the Main Stage.
Cloggeroo always takes pride in showcasing Island artists. PEI’s KINLEY and Out from Under will both take to the Main Stage, along with the Festival’s new Under the Covers feature for late night dancing with well-known Maritime tribute bands, Wharf Rats (Grateful Dead) and The Fabulously Rich (The Tragically Hip). Sunday’s all blues show will be lively with Christine Campbell and Blake Johnston (2022 ECMA Blues Artists of the Year) and their Black Market Band, plus Garrett Mason and Theresa Malenfant.
The pay-what-ou-can family-friendly Saturday afternoon returns once again with live music, food vendors, and craft beers and ciders, all alongside the Brudenell River. Once the music on the Main Stage is over for the night, 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 and DJ VClay.
Cloggeroo is a non-profit organization and the festival is completely run by volunteers. Joining the action is a great way to experience the Festival—just ask repeat volunteers coming this year from all across PEI, around the Maritimes, and even as far as Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. Cloggeroo also has a Junior Volunteer Program, which allows high school students to earn credits for bursaries.
The Festival takes place this year from August 11–13.
