Boots and Hearts Festival Canada 2023 news

Republic Live, producers of the internationally acclaimed, multi-award-winning music festival Boots and Hearts, unveiled the full line-up for the 2023 music festival, August 10th – 13th at Burl’s Creek Event Grounds in Oro-Medonte, Ontario.

Celebrating the best in live entertainment and the ultimate festival experience, this year’s line-up features a number of Boots and Hearts firsts, including the introduction of rock artists BIG WRECK and JJ WILDE to compliment global rockstars NICKELBACK as they make their first #BootsLife appearance. Boots alumni and fan favourite KEITH URBAN and country music superstar TIM MCGRAW round out the list of main stage headliners, while BRELAND and TYLER JOE MILLER are newly confirmed to headline the Front Porch Stage for the very first time.

Since starting the festival in 2012, we’ve focused on delivering a premium festival experience and offering once in a lifetime moments. This year, we are expanding on the musical experience to ensure there is something for everyone. A day trip to see the hottest acts in country and rock or a weekend of nostalgia with Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, and Nickelback. I believe there’s a genuine love affair with country and rock. We’re thrilled to host Nickelback’s only Ontario performance date and celebrate such a special moment with the global superstars.
