Canadian rock band CRASH TEST DUMMIES is back on tour!, bringing their much acclaimed sound to Festival Place! There is no mistaking the unique bass-baritone voice of lead singer Brad Roberts which no doubt will be conjuring fond memories of CRASH TEST DUMMIES hits over the last two decades. The band received international acclaim with their sophomore record, ‘God Shuffled His Feet’, released in 1993. Their single ‘MMM MMM MMM MMM’ went to the top of the billboard charts in America and then in Europe. Over the years the band has touched on funk and soul, folk, electronic music and even Christmas tunes, and now fans will be able to enjoy Roberts‘ voice and offbeat lyrical sensibility as they perform live. Fans can look forward to a performance of material weighted towards their ‘God Shuffled His Feet’ album, but also including songs from the more than ten CRASH TEST DUMMIES albums over the years.

Opener- Rebecca Lappa

Rebecca Lappa may have been Canada's best kept folk-rock secret - until now. The Canadian Folk Music Awards recipient and Edmonton Music Awards winner is Canada's brightest new voice.

In December 2017, Rebecca released her new folk-rock EP, “Spirit”. It features the song “Valiant of Vimy” that won the Lieutenant Governor’s Spirit of Vimy contest and a trip to Vimy Ridge. Reuniting with her CFMA winning team of Barry Allen and Gord Matthews from Homestead Recorders, the songs on the EP reflect the human spirit and highlight courage, adventure, change and love.
