The Long Day’s Night Music Festival is a 4-day series of nightly music performances June 20-23 that accompanies the SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival. This festival features nightly concerts under the big top tent in the Windscape Kite Field just south of Swift Current.
2019 Long Day’s Night Music Festival line-up:
Thursday, June 20 – Reverend Horton Heat’s Hillbilly Invasion is coming to reveal & reinterpret the country-blues-rock roots of American music! With special guest Bloodshot Bill and opening sets by The Hooten Hallers and The Delta Bombers.
Friday, June 21 – Delhi2Dublin’s distinctive sound has evolved over the past decade into its own decisive genre of “Subcontinental Pop”. D2D were part of CBC TV’s big New Year’s Eve broadcast. This evening will begin with the Über Funk Orchestra, the evolution of the funk band, Stepchyle, based here in Saskatchewan.
Saturday, June 22 – The Sadies, the best live band in Canada, return to the LDN stage with opening act The Garrys, an all-girl surf-rock band out of Saskatoon.
Sunday, June 23 – Shred Kelly is bringing their blissful, enthusiastic folk rock back to Long Day’s Night. This is a much-anticipated show, since many people were eager to see their cancelled Blenders concert back in February.
