Rainbow Trout Music Festival Turns 10

Posted on

We may not have much summer to speak of in Manitoba, but we know what to do with it. Summer music festivals are beautifully ubiquitous, with audiences growing up totally used to music discovery in the sunshine (...or rain). Numerous smaller festivals have popped up in recent years, populating just about every weekend with a different chance to catch some live music, and many of them have a hyper-local focus. 

Now in its celebrating its 10th year, the Rainbow Trout Music Festival (RTMF) has since established itself as a serious summer destination for music fans. Running August 17-19 just south of St. Malo, RTMF offers three days of music, camping, swimming, craft vendors, and more. Founded and organized by a group of volunteers, the indie fest has a loyal audience and tends to sell out of passes every year.

Of this year's 20+ performers, most are homegrown, spanning from jazz and hip hop acts to singer/songwriters to experimental electro rock to indie pop (and pretty much everything in between). This year's lineup includes the likes of Super Duty Tough Work, Living Hour, Warming, Ghost Twin, lounge FM, Keith Price Double Quartet, Sebastian Gaskin, Tansy, Lakes and Pines, and more. 

Check out the schedule and get your tickets when they go on sale June 6 at 7 PM at Forth Cafe.
