Day 6 – Ottawa Bluesfest 2022

Day 6 – Ottawa Bluesfest 2022 brought punk rock to the city with some amazing acts like Millencolin, Sum 41, and Alexisonfire!


Kicking off the day was the boys from Sweden, Millencolin! Their old-school punk sound as people started entering the festival grounds got the people ready for a great evening ahead. Millencolin has been around for a very long time and you can tell as they know how to rock the stage! 


Opening up the inside stage was Mischa! This local Ottawa Hip Hop artist brought a full lighting crew, sound crew, and even backup dancers to put on a party. She has been gaining some traction in the local music scene and also recently played Metro metro Festival in Montreal. This was a seated show but she had everyone standing up and grooving along with her!

Sum 41

What can I say about this band but just PERFECTION. After all these years, Sum41 still knows how to put on an incredible show. Their stage design and stage presence are unmatched compared to what we have seen at Bluesfest so far. This show was like listening to their best hits album, not missing a single song that everyone enjoys.

Charlie Cunningham

Charlie Cunningham opened up the River Stage today. This was a slower-paced set than the rest of the evening but it was nice to get an acoustic break from all the rock happening around the grounds. It’s always nice to see the variety of music the organizers bring to the festival each year to make as many fans happy as they can.

Chicano Batman

Ending the Sirius Stage for the evening was Chicano Batman all the way from Los Angeles! Before we get into how they sound, the guitarist’s outfit was AMAZING, looking like a cowboy Elvis. From start to end, they had the crowd moving and grooving with them.


This band needs no introduction. The Canadian legends themselves, Alexisonfire. With rugs laid all over the stage, this band knows how to put on a show. Moody lighting, tasty licks, and all the classics. The festival was packed from gate to stage. Dallas Green, as always, had an incredible voice and George controlled the crowd with his hair flipping and theatrics. Alexisonfire, come back to Ottawa anytime! 

Day 6 – Ottawa Bluesfest 2022 ended with some power house music and childhood memories. Day 7 brings Luke Bryan out so make sure you check that one out!
