It’s that time of year again! The ice has finally thawed and everyone’s wondering who they’re going to see pop up on the roster for Ottawa’s 10-day festival known as Bluesfest. Every year we can expect to see some heavy hitters; This year includes a well-anticipated encore from both Snoop Dogg and Wu-Tang Clan. Aside from the classics, our readers will be blessed with an array of genres this year from new-age hip hop to R&B soul to even a little bit of traditional Rwandan music (yeah, you read that right!). We might even get a little crazy this year and hit up Backstreet Boys for some 90’s nostalgia; We at Envy are always known to stray a little when Bluesfest comes to the city.
