For music fans looking to discover new artists at an intimate festival setting in the pristine outdoors, the Rainbow Trout Music Festival (RTMF) might just be the perfect summer event. The 11th annual event, which runs August 16-18 just south of St. Malo, offers three days of music with a hyper-local focus, camping, swimming, craft vendors, and more. Founded and organized by a group of volunteers, the multi-genre indie fest has a loyal audience and tends to sell out of passes every year.

Of this year's 30 performers, many are homegrown, spanning from R&B and indie pop acts to singer/songwriters to experimental electro rock to jazz (and pretty much everything in between). This year's lineup includes the likes of phychedlic rockers Apollo Suns, singer/songwriter Field Guide, psych rock outfit Holy Void, jangly pop act JayWood, R&B/jazz/roots artist Kenzie Jane, indie pop act Lana Winterhalt, indie rockers Merin, ethereal experimental collective Palm Trees, cellist/composer Rob Knaggs, indie hearthrobs Royal Canoe, indie alt.country band Ultra Mega, and more. 

Touring acts making their way for the fest include award-winning hip hop emcee from Cree Territory in Saskatchewan Eekwol, Orangville plez rockers Falcon Jane, electro popsters Pastoralia from Halifax, and more. 

Check out the schedule and get your tickets when they go on sale June 10 at 6PM at Barnhammer Brewing.
