Every year when the lineup for the Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest comes out we can’t help but think this event’s producers top all of the other summer festies with an eclectic bill featuring some of the best names in the biz. Of course with two weeks and seven stages, the Bluesfest does have an advantage. This year’s lineup continues the sick lineup trend with Rush, Furthur, Crowded House, Weezer, the Flaming Lips, Levon Helm, Jimmy Cliff, Passion Pit and Arcade Fire among the dozens of bands that will perform between July 6 – 18 in the Canadian capital. Color us jealous.
