Long Days Festival’s line-up is now set.


Plan to attend the 2016 Long Day's Night Music Festival. Come celebrate four of the longest days of the year with great music in the big-top tent in Swift Current on June 23-26.  Plan to take advantage of the SGI-sponsored free rides home - right to your doorstep.
Up first on Thursday, June 23 will be the six-piece rock’n’roll dance band, The Wet Secrets. They are known for their swampy basslines, primal drumming, dancing ladies with brassy hornsticks, keys, congas and vocal harmonies.  Opening for The Wet Secrets will be the Saskatoon-based, We Were Lovers.
On Friday, June 24, the Johnny McCuaig Band will take the stage with energy, melody and distinctive rock and roll with bagpipes.  They are among the few that display integrity, originality and willingness to push the envelope of creativity.  Opening for Johnny McCuaig Band is DJ Baby Daddy.  
Canadian indie-rock band from Ottawa, Hollerado will be the main stage performers on Saturday, June 25.  Their live show is one not to miss, and is jacked up with energy and full of fun.  Opening for Hollerado is another Ontario-based band, Little Junior, who sing about what they know from a uniquely wry perspective.
Closing out Long Day’s Night, on Sunday, June 26 is the roots-rock band, The Matinee.  They are a band that delivers such a complete musical panorama right from the get-go with their boot-stomping party.  Opening for The Matinee will be Regina-based, Nick Faye and the Deputies, known for their alternative-rock sound that still has a roots feel.  
You won’t want to miss this years’ Long Day’s Night Music Festival! In addition to the many great artists filling to the big top tent in June, there will be many great raffle prizes, as well as draught beer provided by local brewery, Black Bridge Brewery.
This festival is proudly sponsored by SIGA and the Living Sky Casino.
