Canada Is Getting A Brand-New Major Music Festival Called HomeAway By The Creators Of Bonnaroo
A MAJOR NEW CAMPING FESTIVAL IS PLANNED FOR THE OUTSKIRTS OF TORONTO AND WILL SHOWCASE ARTISTS OF ALL MUSICAL CAPABILITIES.
The music industry is booming like never before; producers and DJs alike are overwhelming Soundcloud servers, artists are engaging on longer, bigger, and more exotic tours, and finally new festivals keep appearing every year.
Now in recent news, Bonnaroo Co-Founder and AC Entertainment CEO Ashley Capps have confirmed AC Entertainment’s plans to create three new festivals in 2015.
The festival receiving the most press attention is called HomeAway and will be co-produced with Toronto based promoters Republic Live.
Republic Live is a smaller organization compared to AC Entertainment, but specializes in strictly camping festivals. Republic Live hosts Boots and Hearts Music Festival every year, which is allegedly the “biggest camping music festival in Canada“. That statement is not confirmed and I personally have doubts considering how small Republic Live’s official Facebook page is. It seems odd that Republic Live could organize the biggest camping event in Canada when compared to Shambhala, Havelock Country Jambree, or WEMF.
Although an official location for HomeAway has yet to be announced, Republic Live recently signed a long term contract with Stan Dunford, the new owner of Burl’s Creek. Burl’s Creek is a 700 arce space just north of Barrie in a town called Oro-Medonte. The embed video below shows Burl’s Creek, which seems very likely to be the location of HomeAway Festival. Especially considering that Burl’s Creek released an official press statement late last year boasting the park’s capacity of 80,000 attendees and capable of hosting “globally-recognized music festivals”.
Official dates, location, and lineup can be expected early this year so stay tuned here on CanadaNightlife.ca for more information.
