The lineup has been announced and it's almost time for music fans to gather on the banks of Rosseau River for one of Manitoba's indie summer music festivals, the Rainbow Trout Music Festival (RTMF). Organized by a volunteer-only team, this year's event will feature a wide range of music genres and the ideal setting for a summer getaway with its cozy bonfires and campground setting.

Local gems include melodic singer-songwriter Diaphanie, hip hop artist Dill the Giant, electronic and jazz fusion Freddy and the Fire Nation, singer/songwriter/guitarist Gabrielle Ocejo, eclectic ensemble Impressions Jazz Group, funk pop act JayWood, alternative garage band Julien's Daughter, indie rockers Living Hour, electronic rock band Mahogany Frog, cellist composer Rob Knaggs, folk artist Sophie Stevens, anti-rock trio Trampoline, three-piece VVonder, and more.
