By Bigoa Machar
After being rained out of Fort Calgary last year, the 2016 rendition of X-Fest looks to come back strong this year, and it packs a lineup ready to do so. Revealed Monday, the festival will be headlined by Columbus band Twenty One Pilots and Denver band The Lumineers. The lineup also will include appearances from Halsey, Vance Joy and AWOLNATION.
The festival will also include a wide variety of Canadian talent, from Toronto’s July Talk to Hamilton’s Arkells.
Other acts performing include Jake Bugg, Wintersleep and Atlas Genius.
X-Fest will be taking place on July 3&4 at Fort Calgary. To see the full lineup and to purchase tickets, visit xfestcalgary.com.
