Forest Festival focuses on indoor venue in 2019
The annual Forest Festival, held at Haliburton Forest and Wild Life Reserve, will be basing its concerts out of the upgraded Logging Museum as it completes renovations on the Bone Lake Amphitheatre this season.
Organizers released details about the upcoming season, which runs from Aug. 14 to 18 and includes Steven Page, The Slocan Ramblers, The Satallites, Collette Savard and The Savants, Soul Stew, Amanda Rheaume, and CBC’s Tom Allen.
For the first time, the festival will be offering licensed dance parties – on Friday, Aug. 16 and Saturday, Aug. 17. “Get your boogie on with two of Canada’s best party bands,” a release from the Forest Festival reads.
The festival wraps with Tom Allen’s chamber musical, described as “an adventure story set in the future, with classical music and original songs. Featuring Patricia O’Callaghan.”
