Arts, Festivals & Entertainment
Since 1980, over 30 diverse musical acts from North, South and beyond, gather on the sandy shores of Yellowknife's scenic Long Lake to bring you Folk on the Rocks - the coolest Canadian Music Festival north of 60! Set in a natural amphitheater, the breathtaking site provides the backdrop for five stages of live music, workshops, a cultural area and beer garden - all under the lure of the midnight sun. Folk on the Rocks' unique mix of southern, and northern musical acts results in a culturally diverse program for both artists and audiences to experience. Between Saturday and Sunday, over 3,000 visitors will come to Long Lake to listen to music, take in the scenery and enjoy the most anticipated weekend of the year.
