I have been attending this event since I was 4 years old. One of my favourite headliners was Fefe Dobson. Dobson approaches her new music by reflecting on some of rock music's pioneers and her musical influences including Joan Jett, The Runaways and Jim Morrison of The Doors. The quintessential rock elements of these early artists influence Dobson’s musical direction, but it is her distinct vocals and personal lyrics which resonate specifically with her fans.
Determined to leave an imprint on the surface of music history, Dobson has enlisted the help of some of the industry’s biggest names including Sham & Motesart (Melanie Fiona, Nelly Furtado), Dallas Austin (Carly Rae Jepsen, Pink), Cook Classics (Miguel) while cowriters for the album include Claude Kelly (Jessie J, Kelly Clarkson) and Lil Eddie (K'Naan, JoJo). I met her in 2013, she seemed really eager to met fans. She really loves her fans.
This years headliner to be announced.
