After a hugely successful inaugural year, Four Winds Music Fest is back July 12-14, 2024 to present some of Canada's finest artists in its bucolic setting east of Toronto.

Today, Four Winds announces its initial line-up, including Bahamas, Terra Lightfoot, Joel Plaskett, Boy Golden, Great Lake Swimmers, Daniel Romano's Outfit, Logan Staats, Jerry Leger & The Situation, along with others and more to be confirmed.

The festival is also staging a preview concert series, kicking off Sat. Feb. 10 with Terra Lightfoot performing solo at Black Bellows Brewing Company in Collingwood, Ontario (see poster below).

Early Bird festival tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 2 through fourwindsmusicfest.com.

Staged at the beautiful Riverstone Retreat, just outside of Durham, Ontario, Four Winds Music Fest isn't just about the music. Attendees can also enjoy a variety of other fun activities throughout the weekend, including yoga sessions, children's games, African dance and cooking classes, drum circles, and guided tours of the Riverstone Retreat grounds.

Four Winds Music Fest co-founder Ariana Dalie says, ""I am honoured to be presenting the Four Winds Music Fest for the second year, a process that began in August 2023. We are all about recreating the magic we experienced in our inaugural year, and we are thrilled about the incredible lineup of talented Canadian musicians who will be performing this year. I am also grateful for the opportunity to return to the Elephant Thoughts River Stone Campus. Do not miss the Four Winds Music Fest this summer!"

Ariana's partner Craig Smith, also of the band Ontarians, adds, "Curating a music festival with so many talented Canadian artists has been challenging -- there’s just a lot of artists we want to include. For our second year, our goal is to deliver an exceptional lineup and keep creating the kinds of vibes expected from a summer festival. We’ve done this and we can't wait to see you there!"
