Ottawa 2012 concerts/festivals

I mean, it's never to early to talk your spring and summer live music plans.

Some highlights of the upcoming local schedule...

April 30 - Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Scotiabank Place
June 15 - Lady Antebellum, Scotiabank Place
July 4-15 - Bluesfest, Lebreton Flats
August 10/11/12 - Capital Hoedown, Walter Baker Park
September 10 - Madonna, Scotiabank Place

Bluesfest schedule gets announced on April 24 at their gala.

Capital Hoedown announced their schedule a long time ago. Headliners are Reba McEntire, Taylor Swift, and Brad Paisley.

And some in the surrounding areas...

June 2 - Dave Matthews Band, Molson Amphitheatre(Toronto)
June 15/16 - D-Tox Rockfest, Montebello, QC
July 14 - Vans Warped Tour, Parc Jean Drapeau(Montreal)
July 14 - Edgefest, Downsview Park(Toronto)
August 3-5 - Osheaga, Parc Jean Drapeau
August 10/11 - Heavy MTL, Parc Jean Drapeau

Edgefest has Billy Talent, Death From Above 1979, Silversun Picks and The Sheepdogs among others.

Going to try to make that DMB show in Toronto. And some Bluesfest days naturally.

What are your music plans? Big shows, small shows, big American festivals, small local festivals. Let us know.

Hopefully Osheaga has a solid lineup, I like to make the trek up there every year.

Beyond that and Bluesfest I won't have the time, money or interest to go to any of the other events.

A bit of self promotion but the open mic at the Lafayette sports some truly great local artists and is free: Tuesday nights at around 9:30 start.

When I get back from Australia in a few months I will get back to it. If you're looking some good old ragtime fingerpicking blues, I should be able to please.

My girlfriend and I usually head down to the States once or twice a year for a few concerts. Last year we went to Burlington (OAR) and Boston (Fountains of Wayne), and the year before we caught a concert at Woodstock (OAR again) on the way down to NYC. This summer we're taking the train to California and we're going to plan around the touring schedules of as many bands as we can. Hopefully tour dates will start getting released soon so we can get planning.

Obligatory Bonnaroo mention. Not even remotely Ottawa area, obviously, but I'm considering hitting it up. Radiohead, RHCP, The Beach Boys, Bon Iver, Aziz Ansari the comedian/actor, Skrillex, Alice Cooper, Flogging Molly, Childish Gambino, City and Colour, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jr... great lineup.

My wife and I are heading to Australia to attend the Byron Bay Bluesfest. We went last year, and it's a great festival. It takes place every year over Easter.

We'll probably also head to the Newport, RI Folk Festival at the end of July. I've heard a lot of great things about it.

As for locally, don't forget the Ottawa Folkfest, which will take place Sept. 6 to 9.

Ahh, saw Raek last time when he came to Ritual, any Wu-Tang is legit.

Going to RHCP, should be good pretty stoked. Looking forward to bluesfest lineup.

I had a few friends who went to Bonnaroo last year and had a blast. I was hoping to go on a trip this year to Coachella but alas, its not gonna happen. Hopefully next year.

Very cool on two counts. I wish I'd done what you're doing this summer when I was younger and Fountains of Wayne are among the bands I've never gotten to see that I've always wanted to. I had tix to a festival in PEI about 6-7 years ago but the show was cancelled the night before.

I've heard Beirut, Black Keys and Death Cab. The latter two re-booked after last years horrible circumstances...and so many disappointed fans. Positive PR and shows that the organizers care!!!!

For real? Are you just hoping or do you know?

Haven't seen them live since 2002. I'd love to catch them again, they should be releasing an album sometime soon too.

All I know for now is that I'll attend Bluesfest for one day using my day pass from last year. Still sucks that I missed a very rare chance to see Satriani in Ottawa
