No. 39 go see gaga.
The gargantuan Ottawa Bluesfest sprawls over two weeks and encompasses just about every genre on the planet. Sure, it might be a little directionless, but you can see some of the planet’s most famous artists and some of the best ones, too. (Sometimes both!) Pop icon Lada Gaga, DJ/producer/remixer Ryan Hemsworth, rock icon Blondie, rapper/actor Childish Gambino, Tuareg guitar god Bombino, English prodigy Jake Bugg and electronic trip-hopper Bonobo share the same bill. See? July 3 to 13. $20-$150, festival passport and multiple ticket options at frontgatetickets.com. ottawabluesfest.ca.
