The Long Day’s Night Music Festival is a 4-day series of nightly music performances that accompany the SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival in Swift Current

 

This festival features nightly concerts under the big top tent in the Windscape Kite Field just south of Swift Current, Saskatchewan. 
This year, Long Day’s Night will feature many of the hottest bands in Canadian music scene:
Thursday, June 21 – The Dead South recently won the 2018 Juno Award for Traditional Roots Album of
the Year. The Dead South is a five-piece acoustic ensemble based right here in Saskatchewan.

Band member Eliza Mary Doyle hails from Swift Current, so playing Long Day’s Night is a chance to celebrate
the recent Juno win with a hometown crowd. 


Friday, June 22 – The Harpoonist and the Ax Murderer kill it on stage every time, much to the delight of
blues fans everywhere.  Local musicians The Moon Runners will open the evening.
Saturday, June 23 – It’s a good thing LDN is in a tent, because Juno-nominated Five Alarm Funk bring the
house down every time!  They’ll be joined by high energy pop-reggae trio The Steadies. 
Sunday, June 24 – Terra Lightfoot. Terra was nominated for a 2018 Juno Award for her Adult Alternative
Album New Mistakes. Her concert will be the perfect ending to the festival weekend.
