The festival headliners include: legendary First Nations artist Buffy Sainte-Marie, Indigenous all-star DJ crew A Tribe Called Red, innovative rock/folk/psych duo Whitehorse, buzzed-about songwriter Andy Shauf, and iconic family performer Fred Penner. July 6-9, the event will include: 6+ stages, 50+ artists, and roughly 100 performances/exhibits, featuring music & arts for all tastes and ages. “We literally cannot be more excited about this year’s lineup,” says Executive/Artistic Director Max Merrifield, “We have a really, diverse, exciting roster of Indigenous artists as well, and people from all over the country are planning to travel to Sudbury for this special event.”
For 2017, NLFB is offering accommodations packages for travellers of all types. There are hotel packages, combining weekend passes with rooms at Clarion Hotel Sudbury (Elm St.). There are also camping packages including off-site campsites at Mine Mill Campground (with shuttle service daily), and hostel-style packages including rooms at Cambrian College Residence.
