Aug. 17-18 ar­bore­tum­fes­ti­

Now billed as Bon-Fire, the fes­ti­val formerly known as Ar­bore­tum has al­ways cel­e­brated in­die mu­sic, great food, and late-night rev­elry. This year the bash re­turns to the fam­ily-op­er­ated Rideau Pines Farm, a 25-minute drive from down­town Ot­tawa. Wolf Pa­rade, Mon­treal’s post-punk in­die leg­ends, head­line af­ter acts like soul­ful Dji­boutian singer Shay Lia, Cal­gary’s psych-rock prince Chad VanGaalen, Hal­i­fax’s pop rock­ers Mauno, and slick elec­tro-soul duo Bon­jay. Ex­pect hayloft shows and wood­land dance par­ties as well as pick-your-own vegeta­bles and fruit, and snack and meals from the re­gion’s best chefs.
