The Edmonton Folk Music Festival (EFMF) announced its 2023 lineup Wednesday, with nearly 60 artists from across the country and around the globe.

The festival runs Aug. 10-13 at Gallagher Park.

The headliners of the festival will be Canadian singer-songwriter Feist on Thursday, Fleet Foxes on Friday, alternative country band Old Crow Medicine Show on Saturday and Ben Harper to close out the festival on Sunday.

“This year’s outstanding lineup of 58 artists sees a return of more international artists as travel and touring returns to normal, and strikes a healthy balance of returning artists with those new to the Edmonton festival,” said EFMF in a news release.
