Blue Rodeo returning to Bluesfest after Shaggy drops out

The Bluesfest lineup has changed slightly, due to a scheduling conflict with one of the acts.

Bluesfest has announced Jamaican singer and DJ Shaggy will not be able to attend the festival this year.

In his place, festival favourites Blue Rodeo will be back.

It’s great to have Blue Rodeo back after a few years’ hiatus from the line-up,” Bluesfest executive and artistic director Mark Monahan said in a statement. “Their live show ranks right up there among the best we’ve staged—it’s a performance I personally look forward to whenever they’re here, and it always seems to get better!”

Blue Rodeo will be performing July 12.
