Islendingadagurinn (aka The Icelandic Festival of Manitoba)

Royal Canoe appear at the Icelandic Festival on Saturday, July 30th

The music lineup for the122nd annual Islendingadagurinn in Gimli was recently revealed on the festival's new site and blog.

As in years previous, there's a full slate of intriguing independent acts worth checking out (for free!), with notable highlights including the still-kickin' and incomparable Nathan, 2011 WCMA nominees (and past winners) The Liptonians, and live act extraordinaires Royal Canoe.

One last thing to note: unlike years previous, the majority of the lineup features bands residing within New Iceland provincial borders (Saskatoon-based singer-songwriter Zachary Lucky being the exception). The likely reason is that Manitoba music runs strong and is intent on world conquest. Just like the Vikings.

But without horned helmets.

Only Winnipeg bands? Unfortunately I've seen them all before.
I guess I won't be making the day trip this year.

So have I, but I will still be attending. Going out to Gimli is always a nice day trip and hearing Royal Canoe and The Liptonians live again is always a treat.
