Mariposa Folk Festival Widens Its Scope with 2024 Lineup

Created in 1961, the long-running Canadian folk/roots festival will present Old Crow Medicine Show, Bruce Cockburn, Band of Horses, Noah Cyrus, William Prince, Maestro Fresh Wes and more for this year's edition.

Canada's longest-lived and most arguably important folk music festival, the Mariposa Folk Festival, has announced its 2024 lineup. The event runs July 5 to 7 at Tudhope Park in Orillia, the Ontario town that first hosted the fest back in 1961.

It's a compelling and stylistically diverse lineup, headed by Old Crow Medicine Show, Bruce Cockburn, Bahamas, Band of Horses, Noah Cyrus, William Prince and Maestro Fresh Wes. That grouping includes both Canadian and American acts, and showcases a diversity of genres, with hip-hop, world music, classic rock, and pop-rock artists billed alongside more conventional folk/roots singer/songwriters. It also includes names like Amigo The Devil, Donovan Woods, Dwayne Gretzky and Jesse Cook.
