Photo cred - Wear This Not That
Because Ontario doesn't already have enough summer festivals, Bonnaroo has decided to add their name to the pot. AC Entertainment has confirmed that HomeAway, Bonnaroo's destination music festival, will be in Barrie, Ontario this summer. The event will be co-hosted by Republic Live, the group that brought you the ever popular camping music festival, Boots and Hearts.
The official location for the event hasn't been announced yet, but there's a good chance it'll be at Burl's Creek. Republic Live has recently signed an agreement with its owner, and renovations are already under way to turn the park into a "world class venue." With it's 80 000 person capacity, I'd say that makes it perfect for a festival like HomeAway.
The organizers are expected to announce the official dates, location, and lineup in early 2015, so stay tuned.
