While so many have been craving the magic of live music, festivals and concerts, Sudbury’s Northern Lights Festival Boréal has been adapting and working to keep the spirit of live music alive. In September of last year, NLFB made Sudbury music history with the city’s first ever drive-in concert. The veteran music & arts presenter is back with a 2021 festival event, held in its traditional home at Bell Park’s Grace Hartman Amphitheatre, September 10-11, 2021. 

NLFB is announcing a two-day festival-style event – two world class lineups, for in-person, outdoor concerts. The lineup will include acclaimed headliners Dan Mangan and Jeremy Dutcher, as well as Tanika Charles, OKAN, Cindy Doire, Reney Ray, Dany Laj & The Looks, Frank Deresti & The Lake Effect, and more. Tickets will be available through Eventbrite on Friday, August 20th at 11:30AM: the pages for our September 10th event and September 11th event can be accessed for more information.

As an organization that strives to support artists and audiences, NLFB must provide these celebrations of live music in the safest possible format. NLFB is working together with Public Health Sudbury & Districts to ensure all current guidelines are being followed, with some added measures in place. All ticket holders, staff/crew, artists etc. will be required to provide proof of full vaccination, except in the case of a medical exemption. Ticket holders who can not be vaccinated must have a negative COVID test result within the past 48 hours or receive a rapid test at the door before admittance. Additionally, seating will be ‘bubbled’ by social groups, arranged through the online ticket purchasing process. Merchandise, food vendors, and a beer tent are in the plans, with appropriate distancing measures in place. To view our COVID-19 Health and Safety Policy, please visit https://nlfb.ca/covid-19/.
