As festival season kicks off and outdoor venues break out the beer tents, major acts are revealing their summer Canadian dates.

R&B singer SiR announced today (April 3) his upcoming Bad Karma Tour, set for June. The eighteen-date tour includes a stop at Toronto's History on July 30, with Zacari set to appear as well. The tour supports SiR's new record, HEAVY, which debuted this week at No. 49 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.


Canadian crooner Orville Peck also announced new tour dates this week, following his signing with Warner Records. His headlining tour, Stampede, will roll into Toronto July 3, before stopping in Vancouver and Edmonton. Peck is set to release a new single, "Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly Fond Of Each Other," April 5, featuring country legend — and recent Beyoncé collaborator — Willie Nelson.

Killer Mike, who swept the major rap categories at this year's Grammys, is heading on a North American tour this summer with his choir, The Midnight Revival. He'll play six Canadian dates in June and July, including stops at Ottawa Blues Fest, Vancouver Jazz Fest, Winnipeg Folk Fest, Montreal's Jazz Festival and Quebec City's Festival d'été.

Country star Sam Hunt announced his Locked Up Tour, accompanying an EP of the same name. Hunt, who will also perform at this weekend's CMT Awards on Sunday, April 7, will play seven Canadian dates across Ontario and Western Canada this September.

Rock groups The Black Keys and The Hives will also be coming to Canada this year, though only for one date each. Sweden's The Hives will play Toronto's History on Sept. 16, part of a headlining tour that follows their dates with Foo Fighters this summer. The Black Keys will perform at Toronto's Scotiabank Arena as part of their International Players Tour on Oct. 11.
