CityFolk has announced its lineup for Lansdowne Park this fall and it includes one of rock’s legendary vocalists, Robert Plant.
Plant is best know for his work with Led Zeppelin, but these days, he’s touring with the band he formed in 2012 called the Sensational Space Shifters. Considered by many to be the best lead singer of all time, the 70 year old Plant just keeps rockin’ in the free world.
“Since moving to Lansdowne Park in 2015, CityFolk has become an important staple for music fans to celebrate the onset of fall,” the festival’s executive and artistic director Mark Monahan said in a media release. “The festival has established an end-of-summer tradition—cottages are closed, kids are back in school—and CityFolk gives people one last chance to enjoy a great outdoor music experience.”
CityFolk festival organizers have unveiled what they are calling the initial line-up for their 2019 event which runs from Sept. 12 to 15. In addition to Plant, the confirmed acts include:
Summersault — Our Lady Peace +LIVE+ Bush
Donovan Woods and The Opposition
Snotty Nose Rez Kids
The White Buffalo
The East Pointers
LeE HARVeY OsMOND
In addition, the Marvest harvest of local music will take place in venues in the Glebe. Details to come.
