First Headliners Announced for Mattawa’s Voyageur Days

Posted on the 13 February 2015 by Hendrik Pape @soundcheckblg

One of my all-time favorite summer festivals, Mattawa Voyageur Days, announced their headliners this morning and already their 2015 lineup is impressive.

The 2015 line-up, so far, has Dallas Smith kicking off the event on Friday July 23, Sam Roberts taking to the stage on Saturday at noon and Tom Cochrane closing the event on Sunday.

Mattawa Voyageur Days has been named in the TOP1OO Festivals and Events in Ontario for seven consecutive years (2008-2013) by Festivals and Events Ontario and have sold out six of the last seven years.

Every summer since 1997, the Mattawa Voyageur Days Festival is held the last weekend of July. It is organized by the Town of Mattawa and takes place behind the Museum on Explorer's Point. Some of the events include a regional talent night, lumberjack competition, and canoe race. Live music is a large part of the Festival, and has in the past included such notable Canadian musicians as April Wine, Trooper, Saga, Loverboy, Honeymoon Suite, Chuck Labelle and David Wilcox, among others like Liteside and other local singers and musicians from inside and outside the region play on the Thursday night.

As part of tradition, on the Sunday of the event at dusk there is a choreographed fireworks show.

A Saturday headliner is expected to be announced soon and organizers promise that it will "blow you away."

Wristbands are now on sale at all area Scotiabanks and Caisse Populaires, in the Mattawa region, as well the Mattawa Travel Information Centre for $45 tax included. For more information visit www.voyageurdays.com

The price increases to $50 on April 6th and if you buy at the gate it will be $55.
