Summer Beer Fest Announces 2017 Headliner
Two-time JUNO Award winner will rock the stage at Seaway Food Festival’s SUMMER BEER FEST.
Cornwall, ON—The Seaway Food Festival, in partnership with Manchee Media and Limelight Entertainment, is proud to announce that two-time JUNO Award Winner, Classified, will rock the stage for SUMMER BEER FEST on June 24, 2017 in Cornwall, Ontario. Hot off the release of his 15th studio album “Greatful”, available on iTunes and Spotify, the versatile rapper, musician, and producer continues to elevate his game, sharpen his word play, experiment with new sounds and perfect his flow.
“We’re thrilled to have Classified headline the Summer Beer Fest concert,” said Sébastien Manigat, Director of the Seaway Food Festival. “We knew we wanted a big, fresh, Canadian sound to help celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary. Booking Classified was the perfect fit.”
Classified, born Luke Boyd, hails from Nova Scotia, and is known for refreshing honesty in his music and skilled rhyme-slinging. His brand of rap is far from hardcore, as is his personal story. A dedicated family man, his on- and off-stage personas are both tinged with charisma and approachability. He continues to make waves across Canada and abroad with his trademark style and sound—a cross between hip hop and rock, complete with accompaniment from a six-piece band.
For this 3rd edition of the fest, Classified will be the final musical act to take the stage in Lamoureux Park, on the banks the Saint Lawrence River. He will close out a full-day of music, craft beer and fine food tasting, and fun summertime activities.
Tickets for Summer Beer Fest go on sale on March 8th at 1:00PM EST.
