Tuesday, May 16, 2023 – OTTAWA (Canada) – CityFolk organizers today announced a star-studded lineup for 2023. This follows the announcement in April that Hozier will be closing out the festivities on September 17.

“We’re very pleased with the lineup we put together for 2023,” says CityFolk executive and artistic director, Mark Monahan, “We managed to book a number of top-notch performers, including many that we’ve had our eye on for some time now.

“And, for something new this year, we’re adding a layaway option. Ticket buyers can ‘lock in’ their GA or VIP Full Festival Pass at the lowest current prices, with a $20 down payment.”
