The Artfest music program continues to be a big draw for visitors to the festival. Each year, we look for exciting musical talent to perform on the stage bringing together both local and touring bands. The Artfest Live Music creates an atmosphere that entices people to stay at the event all day long. Visitors can tour the artists and artisans exhibit booths, then take a break, listen to some tunes and have refreshments at our new Craft Beer & Wine tent located right by the stage and food area. The festival theme for Artfest 2016 is Explore and Discover. Artfest has booked the music entertainment around this idea starting with a Canada Day celebration on July 1st featuring Songs from the Canadian Song Book with the band Trilogy. Friday from 4pm-8pm dance, sing along, or just tap your feet to Baker Street Station, one of Kingston’s premier bands playing all your classic favourites from the 1950’s- to the 70's. Saturday focuses on the World Music genre and Sunday grooves with a range of music genres. It will be a nice mix of music selected to please a wide range of audience tastes. Come and join us for three days of awesome tunes: Friday 11am-8pm and 11am-6pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Trilogy These three well respected, multi-talented, top music industry professionals blend their talents to faithfully and accurately reproduce the sound of the Artists they pay homage to. From James Brown’s funk, to the heart tugging “ Angel Eyes “by Jeff Healey.
This will be one of the most exciting bands you will see in a very long time. The recreation of the music and their three part harmonies are second to none. Prepare to dance while we celebrate Canada Day with Trilogy - on the main stage, from 12:00-4:00 pm. Check them out!
