"We couldn't be more excited to finally launch the name of our new festival as the WAYHOME MUSIC AND ARTS and announce this inspiring lineup," said REPUBLIC LIVE Exec. Dir. SHANNON McNEVAN. "SAM SMITH is one of the hottest and most exciting new artists in the world right now, so it's awesome to see acts like him join KENDRICK LAMAR and ALT-J on our inaugural bill as CANADA's international destination music festival. It's a testament to how great of an entertainment market southern ONTARIO is. A huge differentiator for any festival we do is the on-site experience and amazingly deep sense of community that people feel there. To that end, we're including tent camping or parking with our ticket offerings to encourage people to camp out with their pals and really immerse themselves in the experience."
"We've been talking with and getting to know the team at REPUBLIC LIVE for several years now and we're excited that WAYHOME MUSIC AND ARTS is at long last becoming a reality," said AC ENTERTAINMENT CEO ASHLEY CAPPS. "Our initial lineup clearly establishes WAYHOME as one of NORTH AMERICA's premiere music and arts festivals and provides a strong foundation to build upon for the future. The BURL'S CREEK site is amazing -- one of the best I've ever seen -- and with four stages, over 90 acts performing across three days and a kaleidoscope of ongoing activities for festival goers, we're focused on creating an unforgettable weekend for everyone."
