Although a number of other Canadian festivals have been cancelled this year, Ontario’s very own Boots and Hearts is set to take place for the eighth year in a row.

The country-themed festival revealed its stacked lineup on Monday morning. Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert were revealed to be the main headliners, followed by Maren Morris, Cole Swindell, Kip Moore and Kane Brown.

Thirty-six acts were revealed initially, with “more to come” as promised by the festival’s organizers, Stan and Eva Dunford.

The 2019 Boots and Hearts music festival will take place once again at the Burl’s Creek grounds in Oro-Medonte between Aug. 8 and 11.

One of the driving forces behind Boots and Hearts’ tens of thousands of visitors is the social aspect. Each year, the festival invites huge country acts as well as new and up-and-coming musicians.

As per tradition, the Burl’s Creek grounds also permit RVs, tents and all forms of camping in general.

Not only that, but there will be festival games, contests, food vendors, sports and the famous ferris wheel, which was previously introduced.
