EDMONTON — 2016 marks the fifth year of the Edmonton instalment of the Six Shooter Records three-day showcase, Interstellar Rodeo. The festival, which is held at the Heritage Amphitheatre at Hawrelak Park, features acts that fall under the blues, roots and country music umbrella and with one stage, is a more casual alternative to the Edmonton Folk Music Festival.

This year’s lineup features 22 acts consisting of local, national and international acts. Friday night’s headliners are JUNO-award winning indie rockers The Strumbellas (Toronto). Cat Power (U.S.) takes the stage on Saturday, along with a solo performance by Edmonton’s own Faith Healer. Saturday night’s headliner is folk act Lord Huron (Los Angeles). The festival is closed off Sunday night with José González (Sweden), Kathleen Edwards (Ottawa), and local performer Joe Nolan and rockers Sam Roberts Band headline the evening.

Weekend passes or single day tickets are available for purchase.

Interstellar Rodeo happens July 22-24. For more information, the full schedule, and to purchase tickets, visit http://interstellarrodeo.com/
