Main Stage artists announced!

Headline the Main Stage in the Concert Zone is Tom Cochrane with Red Rider! He performs at 8:30 pm!


After  iconic  musician  Tom  Cochrane's  early  beginnings  as  a  folk-based  singer/songwriter  playing  the  coffeehouses  of  Toronto's  famed  Yorkville  scene  in  the  early  '70s,  Tom  became  the  driving  force  with  the  adventurous  rockers  Red  Rider  prior  to  achieving  massive international  success  (over  3  million  units  worldwide  and  rare  diamond-sales  status  at  home)  with  the  breakthrough  1991  album  Mad  Mad  World  and  its  anthemic  hit  Life  Is  A  Highway,  which  is  celebrating  its  25th  anniversary  this  year!  With his other recordings combined, he has sold over 6 million worldwide.  Over the course of this long and illustrious career, now spanning more than 40 years, the pride of Lynn Lake, Manitoba has covered more terrain than the Franklin expedition.  

Tom has continued to create potent new material (5 more recordings and several separate single releases since Mad Mad World) while cementing his place in the hearts of Canadians  through  passionate  crowd-pleasing performances  from  coast  to  coast  and  his  unwavering  work  on  behalf  of  humanitarian  causes  and  organizations.  An Officer of  the  Order  of  Canada  recipient  and  Canadian  Music  Hall  of  Fame  inductee,  Cochrane  has  won  eight  JUNO  awards  and  numerous  other  industry  honors,  including  the  2013  Allan  Waters  Humanitarian  Award  and  a  Grammy  nomination.
