Ness is a tent-city in the forest, a family reunion of 4,000 people and an unforgettable festival experience. This summer we’re celebrating our 25th birthday, and we're pulling out all the stops to bring you the most magical Ness yet!

Join over 4,000 people in the forests of Northern Saskatchewan and enjoy indie, roots and folk music from across the globe and close to home, along with over 100 environmental, artistic and cultural activities woven through our many festival venues. Bring your own blanket or outdoor seating and dance the night away under the Northern Saskatchewan stars at Ness Creek's Mainstage. Participate in workshops and watch eye-catching performances at the Children's Area, Drum & Dance Circle, Sharing Circle, and Cultural Connections Venue. Break bread and make music with new and old friends at the Community Kitchen. Shop the Artisan Market and learn about grassroots environmental initiatives at the Eco Village. Get up close and personal with your favourite Main Stage performers in the intimate, acoustic setting of the Workshop Stage. Support our youth artists as they perform on the NessGeneration Stage on Friday afternoon. And keep the good times rolling into the wee hours at the After Hours Venue.

FESTIVAL LINEUP includes: Buck 65, Los Texmaniacs, The Fjords, Bombalesse, The Moondoggies, Slocan Ramblers, Bocephus King & Orchestra Familia, Factor Chandelier, We Were Lovers, Pistolwhips, Steph Cameron, Alma Flamenca, Kory Istace & the Time Pirates, Crooked Creek … and many more yet to be announced!
