Music in the Fields
Back in 2008, the Lucknow Kinsmen had a dream to have a big country music festival to help raise money for various projects. From the first concert in 2009 with 1200 guests hosted in a soccer field with camping scattered over several farm fields, the annual festival has grown into its own festival grounds known as Graceland Festival Grounds, a nod to Grace Hopf, the former owner of the property.
To make the festival such a success, has involved the entire community - businesses, service clubs and over 600 volunteers come together every year to create a special event for their audience.
The festival is charging back in 2022, bigger and better than ever after the pandemic forced the cancellations of both 2020 and 2021.
This year’s headliners include Brothers Osborne, The Sheepdogs, Chris Janson, Hunter Brothers, 54.40, Tenille Arts, Slocan Ramblers, Mudmen, Nice Horse, Slocan Rambles, Epic Eagles, Practically Hip, One Ugly Cowboy, and Genevieve Fisher, with many other acts completing the weekend lineup.
The event runs August 25 to 27 and weekend passes are available for $165 plus HST and fees at www.ticketscene.ca Don’t forget to book your camping site when you order your tickets. Both passes and campsites sell quickly! www.musicinthefields.ca 557 Walter Street, Lucknow
