2015 FredRock Music Festival
July 17, 2015 - July 18, 2015
The 2015 edition of FredRock marks the seventh year of the festival and second at its current site. The first was in 2009 and took place at the Fredericton Raceway (Capital Exhibit Centre). Then from 2010 to 2013, the festival called the Loyalist Rugby Grounds home. Last year saw the festival change its home to the current site at City Hall Grounds (York Street Parking Lot). The current site holds up to 3,500 fans in a partially covered, open air venue and is wheel chair accessible. This venue puts the festival in the heart of the city and gave organizers and festival goers the perfect ‘rain or shine’ venue. In 2014, the new venue packed in over 5,000 fans over the weekend to see international artists such as Billy Talent and Ed Kowalchuk (from the band LIVE). Joining them to round out last year’s lineup were: The Trews, Sass Jordan, I Mother Earth, One Bad Son, Andee, Glorious Sons, Alert the Medic.
FredRock is one of the region’s best and most diverse musical festivals having played host to international acts such as: The Black Crowes, AWOLNATION, Buckcherry, Sebastian Bach, LIVE, Steve Earle and the Dukes as well as popular Canadian performers such as Billy Talent and City And Colour. In addition to these large Canadian and international bands, the festival remains committed to regional talent development having created performance opportunities in front of large audiences for developing regional acts such as Alert the Medic and Carleton Stone as well as more established acts such as Joel Plaskett Emergency and Matt Mays.
