One of Edmonton's nicknames is "the festival city," and it's a moniker that's certainly well deserved. The city hosts a number of music festivals each summer, which means that Edmonton is the place to be during the warm weather months for lovers of different music genres. Here's a rundown of some of the great music fests that people with local real estate may want to take advantage of this August.

Hear Some Great Tunes at Edmonton Folk Fest

The Edmonton Folk Music Festival, held at Gallagher Park from August 7 to 10, will bring the best of folk music to the city. Historically speaking, the festival is famous for the depth of the line up of performers that take the stage. The event's success is also a function of the many committed volunteers who ensure that things flow smoothly. Artists who have performed at the festival in the past include the likes of Bruce Cockburn, Feist and Loreena McKennitt.

Sing the Blues at the Edmonton Blues Festival

From August 15 to 17, blues lovers will gather at the Heritage Amphitheatre to hear 13 different acts of international renown at the Edmonton Blues Festival. Five of the acts scheduled to participate have never before performed in Edmonton. Performers will include The Nighthawks, Robert Cray, Mississippi Heat and The Cash Box Kings.

Rock On at the Edmonton Rock Music Festival

The Edmonton Rock Music Festival will run from August 8 to 9 at the Hawrelak Park Amphitheatre. Performers will include Colin James, David Gogo, Paula Perro & The Project and Burton Cummings. The two-day event will be the perfect option for music lovers who want to hear some top rock and roll acts.

When it comes to music festivals, Edmonton has lots of options for local real estate owners looking to listen to some great tunes and to mingle with like-minded people. All summer long, there are various events that cater to people who like all sorts of genres of music from jazz to folk to blues to opera to rock.
