So we've been working feverishly on our lineup for the 4th edition of our lovely little music and arts festival. I've even been working on it from the future down under.

we figured that since we've got a lot of the bands locked down we'd do a mini lineup announcement to get folks as excited as we are about this year.

Here are 8 of the 60 or so acts that will be gracing one of our 3 stages.

Plants and Animals
Slowcoaster
Paper Lions
Three Sheet
Gordon Gets Lost
Ben Caplan and The Casual Smokers
Keith Hallett and Garrett Mason
The Hornetz

a very limited amount of early bird ticket will go on sale later this week.

this is the first time keith has actually been available for a folly fest, awesome to have garret along for the ride as well, always a treat. this year is the first time we've had Slowcoaster as well. we kinda wanted to prove that you could put on a successful festival in the maritimes without the festival favourites.

we're getting pretty close to having the schedule all wrapped up, what a great feeling!! also the evolve lineup is out, lots of bands I have never heard of, which always makes me excited.

When are tickets on sale? I'm excited! I had a great time last year and think I've convinced a few other people to make the trip from PEI :)

we're working on it right now, I think the final decision was to wait until after paddlefest was over as to not steal any thunder from another amazing festival in NB. I will post here when the limited early birds go on sale, possibly even send you a PM as a thank you for convincing fellow islanders to join in on the fun!

Early Bird Tickets just went on sale for only $75. more bands announcements to come today, but this is what we have announced so far

*Plants and Animals* http://plantsandanimals.ca/

Montreal-based indie rock trio Plants and Animals formed in 2004 around the talents of Warren Spicer (guitar, vocals), Matthew Woodley (drums, percussion, vocals), and Nicolas Basque (guitar, bass, vocals). The band's genre-jumping sound blends rootsy, acoustic-heavy folk and country with elements of classic and progressive rock.

*Slowcoaster* http://slowcoaster.ca/

With infectious and captivating lyrics, reinforced by a commanding groove, Slowcoaster takes you on a ride to the heart of the party with no apologies. Throwing down their high-energy danceable tunes, the Cape Breton trio fuses ska, reggae, hip hop, and classic house influences with their unique brand of funky rock and roll. Having spent the past ten years infiltrating the Canadian live music scene, Slowcoaster has firmly established themselves as one of the country’s most popular jam rock bands.

*Paper Lions* http://paperlions.com/

Paper Lions is a Canadian pop rock band hailing from the unlikely small community of Belfast, Prince Edward Island. Brothers John and Rob MacPhee and neighbour Colin Buchanan began playing music together at a very young age in a variety of garage bands, but the line up was never solidified until they met David MacDonald in high school. MacDonald behind the kit, Buchanan playing guitar and Rob and John filling the positions of bass and lead vocals respectively.

*Three Sheet* http://www.threesheet.com/

What? Three Sheet is a five member, genre-bending power house with a firm base in hip hop and backed by 100% beatbox percussion . With a highly portable composition of 3 microphones, a guitar, and a bass, Three Sheet is known for their mind-melting organic sound with no samples, no loops and no synthesized drums.

*Ben Caplan & The Casual Smokers* http://bencaplan.ca/

Rugged, raspy, and roaring with charisma, Halifax’s Ben Caplan is to folklore what smoke is to bourbon. Perfectly coupled. Ben’s songwriting is as bold in range as it is in ferocity. Fuelled by a quality of melodrama and powerful lyricism, it’s the romance and the manhood crashing with his voice that gives Caplan a truly innovative and experimental artistry. A sound that bridges the gap between controlled composition and unruly passion.


*Keith Hallett & Garrett Mason* ??

What do you get when you combine two of the East Coast’s most talented young bluesmen? You get the brilliant double bill featuring JUNO-winner Garrett Mason and next gen guitar slinger Keith Hallett. Mason has received much acclaim for his solo albums. His debut I’m Just a Man won a JUNO for Best Blues Album, and the follow up, 2008’s Love and Sound, earned him another Juno nomination and a Music Nova Scotia Award for blues recording of the year. New Brunswick blues wonder Keith Hallett’s natural prowess in the genre shines through with his howlin’, growlin’ and soulful vocals, and the impressive guitar licks and slides that have made Keith a household name in the East Coast blues community.

*Gordon Gets Lost* http://www.gordongetslost.ca/

Gordon Gets Lost is a collection of 4 musicians, who are joined on stage by visual artists The Big 3 and followed around the maritimes by a funky circus of colourful friends, fans and freaks.

*The Hornitz* http://www.thehornitz.com/

The Hornitz was founded in May 2006 as a horn section for hire in and around Boston, MA. The group worked with many artists; most notably George Clinton, Guster, and State Radio. In 2008, The Hornitz began producing original music as a duo using Human Beatbox, Tenor Saxophone, Bass Trombone, Keyboard, and organ. Both members utilize live-looping equipment to create large soundscapes for their high energy performances. A Hornitz show is one of the most dynamic and expansive spectacles ever produced by two people.

so our early birds sold out in an hour....me thinks thats a good sign.

heres round 2 of the lineup announcement.

Fm Hi Low (2 sets) http://www.fmhilow.com/
“FM Hi LOW is movement music that soothes, grooves and inspires.”With the release of the brand new album and a cross Canada festival tour FM HI LOW is set for a huge 2012. The new album entitled: FOOD.WATER.SHELTER.LOVE, was recorded in Montreal and Jamaica. It is a genre-bending blast of good vibes that bring you to the farthest ranges of reggae, dub-step, hip-hop, indie rock and folk, all cleverly arranged with a smooth pop sensibility. It embraces catchy hooks as a form of mass communication and views a bumping beat as a tool for inspiring positive change.

TWRP http://www.myspace.com/tupperwareremixparty
The four cosmic entities that comprise TWRP have inhabited the bodies of four simple humans, and have been playing danceable space-rock since crash landing on Earth in late 2007. In their time on this planet TWRP (also known in longhand as Tupper Ware Remix Party) has established a name for itself as an outrageous party band. Through inciting frenzied dance parties and uncontrollable bodily gyration with their science fiction-flavoured electro dance metal, they seek to eliminate boredom and despair across the galaxy

The Belle Comedians http://www.myspace.com/thebellecomedians
The Belle Comedians are the kind of band that takes the stage like they are climbing into your ear and hanging out for while. It’s a comfortable and interesting sensation. Their music aims for impact; songs build and flow, with lush arrangements and emotionally driven vocals, taking you by the hand and sharing with you a story you want to hear. The band blend the heartfelt, intricate songwriting of singer Benjamin Ross with a jangling musical style comprised of elements of folk, alt-country and indie rock.

Owen Steel et al http://owensteel.bandcamp.com/album/owen-steel-et-al
Owen Steel, a man with a gentle heart from Eastern Canada …Young Canadian songwriter, among other things. Trying to become more organized and get priorities straight.

Krasnogorsk http://www.myspace.com/krasnogorsk
the Gypsies you want to dance to.

The Backyard Devils http://thebackyarddevils.com/
Fancy isn’t a word often heard in Eastern Canada and there is nothing fancy about The BackYard Devils. They’re simply playing the music they love. Their debut album is a well blended mix of dirty country, rockabilly and bluegrass. The musicianship runs deep in this band and although they’re playing old styles they have managed to put their own twist to it.

The Town Heroes http://www.thetownheroes.com/
The Town Heroes are a Halifax based alt-rock power duo crafting catchy, lyrical, hard-hitting and anthemic songs that sound like a party you wish you were at.Although minimalist in terms of numbers, their sound is anything but that. Self described as “The most noise two Cape Bretoners can make”, that noise is a cascade of passion, urgency and belief in their songs. On stage they move like intense caricatures – soaked in sweat, pushing every chord, note and beat to the limit. A structured wall of sound emerges; familiar yet distinctive.

Acres & Acres http://aaacres.com/
Comprised of New Brunswick native Kris Pope and bandmate Dave Scholten, both guys had previously played together in Down With The Butterfly, an East Coast Music Award-nominated rock band. Citing a deep nurtured desire to get back to basics with music, Pope and Scholten struck out on their own and thus Acres and Acres was born.

Alan Jeffries & Slim Pickins http://www.myspace.com/alanjeffries
Alan has been a performer since he age of five, growing up at the Local bluegrass festivals around Atlantic Canada. Alan was the 2004 ECBOMA Bluegrass guitarist of the year and has worked with acts such as: Goldrush, Old New Borrowed and Blue, Robbie Arsenault, Solstice Productions, A New Blade of Grass, The Flying Scotsman, Dan Cunningham, 24 Skidoo, Petunia and The Loons, and David Myles.

Oh No Theodore! http://www.ohnotheodore.com/
Oh No, Theodore are a living, breathing orchestral monstrosity born from the belly of a beast.Residing from Fredericton New Brunswick, the six piece group has been described as a indie/folk orchestra, a title they are proud to hold.

Mark Berube & The Patriotic Few http://www.markberube.com/
The summer of 2010 marked the release of the acclaimed Tailored To Fit EP and the fall of 2010 saw the song Flowers on the Stones from What the Boat Gave the River appear in the Québecois film Route 132. With a March 1st release date for band’s new album approaching the momentum continues to build and build. It will, of course, come as no surprise to anyone that Mark and the band will be bringing June in Siberia to audiences all over North America and Europe throughout 2011.

Hungry Hearts http://www.myspace.com/hungryheartsrock
With a dynamic sound and energetic live performances, Hungry Hearts thrive on coming out and having a good time giving everything they’ve got. Are you hungry?

Al Tuck http://www.altuck.ca/
Bring up Al Tuck’s name to any Canadian music insider, and you’d better find yourself a comfortable chair. Feist suspects that he might just be a living legend. Jason Collett called him the greatest songwriter of his generation. He is an awesome encyclopedia of popular music, a roving troubadour familiar with the inside of nearly every bar and club from coast to coast, and after almost 20 years in the business is one of Canada’s true hidden musical treasures (hidden, that is, unless you’ve been lucky enough to hear him).

Whale Skin http://whaleskin.bandcamp.com/
Whale Skin is the project of Willow Bell (The Belle Comedians), who has spent the last several years honing his skills as a producer and DJ. Working with the likes of Jenocide and Paper Lions made Bell keen to start fleshing out his own ideas; tasty beats influenced as much by funk grooves & pop hooks as they are the dirt and grime of the underground French electro scene.

Jinx The Cat https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jinx-the-Cat
4 piece rock reggae band that loves jammin out some sweet and groovy tunes. we are just getting on the go and have shared the stage with bands such as grandtheft bus and slowcoaster! we love the support of everyone, thanks for tuning in to the musical fusion

Westerberg Suicides http://thewesterbergsuicides.bandcamp.com/
So, like, if you took four friends who had incredibly varied influences and musical tastes (but similar beards) and then asked them to write toe-tappin’ folk-rock… or rock-rock… folk-rock-rock… you’d basically have The Westerberg Suicides. So imagine those things, but even better.

Wet Grow Light http://wetgrowlight.bandcamp.com/
What began as a one man project in 2006, with a vision of blending world and electronic elements into a hard driving, danceable musical force has evolved into a 5 piece behemoth obliterating the soundmosphere. Constantly melding elements of surf, jazz, gypsy and rock. Wet Grow Light aims to give you an experience beyond imagination…

Rich Gloade http://www.myspace.com/richardgloadeesq
Richard Gloade, Esq. – This groove trio is deeply inspired by the smooth sounds of blues, soul, jazz, & reggae. This Fredericton, NB musician is accompanied by the Latin styles of guitarist Camilo V. & percussionist Juan Morales. Together, they create a musical sound that is both emotionally significant and innately positive. Seeking to express sound as emotion, the Esquire trio was formed in 2009 to enhance the range of music available to the listening audience

Gravity Strike https://www.facebook.com/gravitystrikemusic
Live minimal techno/electronica from Fredericton, NB

Stephen Lewis Big Band of One https://www.facebook.com/StephenLewisAndTheBigBandOfOne

The Ray Finkles
Born out of a 25-year friendship and mutual love for the hit 90′s film Ace Ventura, the The Ray Finkles are a recently formed surfer rock duo from Fredericton, New Brunswick.This guitar/drums tandem is inspired by the brilliance of genre pioneers like Dick Dale and His Del-Tones and The Ventures, but doesn’t attempt to imitate these musical masters.Instead, they’re shredding for a surfer rock revival, striving to bring fast beats and that unmistakable bright, sunny, West Coast tone to the colder climates of New Brunswick

Every person that RSVPs to the event below will get a chance to win 2 tickets to this years Folly Fest, and since we sold out our early bird tickets in under an hour, this is the best way to get to Folly for super cheap!

http://www.feelsgood.ca/events/folly-fest-presents-the-hornitz-the-capital-complex

The Hornitz

The Hornitz was founded in May 2006 as a horn section for hire in and around Boston, MA. The group worked with many artists; most notably George Clinton, Guster, and State Radio. In 2008, The Hornitz began producing original music as a duo using Human Beatbox, Tenor Saxophone, Bass Trombone, Keyboard, and organ. Both members utilize live-looping equipment to create large soundscapes for their high energy performances. A Hornitz show is one of the most dynamic and expansive spectacles ever produced by two people.

The Hornitz has rocked crowds throughout New England and the Tri-State area with a mixture of Funk, Rock, Electronica, and Jazz. With their unique instrumentation, the band can fit into any venue, and entertain audiences for any amount of time.

Final Lineup announcement. Take a moment and check out these funky orchestras.

Goosepimp Orchestra
http://www.goosepimp.com/

Goosepimp Orchestra is an 8 piece psychedelic latin/funk dance party. Driving elements from all over the musical spectrum into an unrelenting cosmic force, Goosepimp’s live performances have garnered them a reputation for stirring crowds into a dancing frenzy. Smothered with high energy and seasoned with a carefully crafted balance of experimentation and groove, their grassroots mentality has been captivating a devout and growing fanbase, packing venues just to get their fix of the Goose.


Richard James & The Name Changers
http://richardjamesband.com/

Richard James & The Name Changers hail from Boston MA. The band is currently working on finishing their sophomore album for a May / June release and actively booking 2012 summer festivals.


Tom Fun Orchestra
http://tomfun.ca/

The Tom Fun Orchestra is an eight-piece cluster-rock ensemble from Cape Breton Island that has been impressing music fans and critics alike with their raucous stage presence and high-energy show. Their unconventional lineup of violin, banjo, accordion, and trumpet married to a driving rock trio is redefining what people think of Canada’s East Coast music.

Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra
http://www.thetequilamockingbirdorchestra.com/

It's hard to describe music in the age of cross pollination; where do you begin with the definitions when one minute a song starts in a tango, builds up with African Rythms, hooks you with some gypsy-roots-grass riffs, and pours out psychedelic waves of sound walls to a crisp finish. Not to sound too much like a bottle of wine, but The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra are aging well.

Carmen Townsend & The Shaky Deals
http://carmentownsend.ca/

You can call Carmen Townsend’s music many things, but reserved isn’t one of them. As polite as she may be in person, within Townsend lives a voice much louder than she lets on in conversation. It’s one that manifests itself onstage through her raucous live sets, full of an intensity that has been building throughout Townsend’s career as a musician.

Michael Bernard Fitzgerald
http://www.last.fm/music/Michael+Bernard+Fitzgerald

At a time when the music industry is predominantly concerned with marketing generic bad boys and anti-heroes, MBF breaks from the pack with a refreshingly earnest and optimistic sound. It’s won him a local following which stands strong against any other Calgary act, and in addition to hometown fans, he’s also gaining interest across the country.


Zulkamoon
http://www.myspace.com/intisol

Zulkamoon, poetry of the street, circus of life ...cumbia, ragga, reggae, ska and dub hardfolk Zulkamoon is the result and passion for dance.

Midnight Ramblers
http://www.myspace.com/themidnightramblers1

The Midnight Ramblers are a high energy rock band that sounds like a variation between rock, blues, funk, reggae and every other joyful sound that’s inspired the group. This melting pot of sound has the ability to capture a wide range of people who like to keep their feet moving and grooving.

Killawail
http://www.killawail.com

Taking some of the finest talent from Montreal and Melbourne, these musicians traversed the Pacific Ocean with one intention – to form the Garage-Funk group, KillaWail.

Alert the Medic Alert The Medic
http://www.alertthemedic.com/

“We, the weapon” is Alert The Medic’s highly anticipated follow up to their 2006 Self-Titled debut. This album is nothing, if not forceful. A dynamic display of infectious melodies and passionate performances; driven only by their collective rock tendencies. Fueled by childhood MTV propaganda and the beckoning bright lights of their nearby Halifax metropolis, these former rural rockers are determined to fill the map with thumbtack holes.


Tumba Sound
http://www.myspace.com/tumbasound

We are a mix of Fredericton local musicians with an all-embracing musical experience that are crazy about music and dance. Our music touches all aspects of the Latin style from traditional rhythms to the modern sounds from around the world that will keep you moving

Mike Le Lievre
http://www.reverbnation.com/mikelelievre

mike's been playing in the bars since 13, guitar,bass,mando,slide,songs,tunes,one nighters, all weekers, goodtimes, badtimes and now in your home!

Red Wood Fields
https://www.facebook.com/RedwoodFields

Melding traditional folk storytelling with bits of dream pop and shoegaze, Fredericton four-piece Redwood Fields answers to influences as wide ranging as S. Carey and the Rural Alberta Advantage. After an initial run of shows in late 2011, the band reshaped itself around singer/songwriter Cedric Noel, Brendan MaGee (keyboards) and Bruce Duval (percussion), while they also added Heather Ogilvie (Slate Pacific, The Name & Faces) to help reach a new sound

Jonah Hache
http://www.myspace.com/jonahhhhhhh

Jonah Hache is a random access creator with a consistent influence from the people he works with and brainstorms with in TBA Collective. His method as an artist has been a blend of earthly and vibrant abstractness with a hint of cartoonish characterizations of different concepts he feels right to express at the moment it was created.

Mike Humble
http://www.feelsgood.ca/profile/mumble

Chances are you've seen Mumble on percussion with any number of fantastic east coast acts over the past few years, and if you've had the joy of shaking your shake-ables to Gordon Gets Lost, your more then familiar with his unique style. That, however, is Mumble. This is Mike Humble; a funny folky fella thats stepped out from behind the congas and is now sittin with his guitar, singing about bees, beards, beers and leaving whisky on rooftops somewhere in St Andrews.

Erik Schramek
http://www.myspace.com/erikschramek

reggae music, hip-hop grooves, the stupendous silliness of funk, Mr. Jimi Hendrix (the man changed my life), sunshine, fried rice, people who -no matter what- are down to jam, dancing till I'm blue in the face, silly rhymes, silly times, wind chimes and elaborate crimes. I also really dig laughter. And sound effects.

Bookman

Bookman is most often more of a Bassman, although you wouldn't know it with the glasses. A gentelman of good moral standing and wonderful way with the guitar.

Buckley

Making his debut at Folly Fest 3, Buckley made a lasting impression with his soulful stage presence. He's playing again this year, and we're all quite Jazzed about it.

Scott Mallory

Scott Mallory is a fella who was ment to be onstage. Whether its with the Belle Comedians, Whale Skin, or his solo scene, the man rocks out to the furthest degree.

hiya! there are no limits on day passes, last year the Queens County Fair had 6000 people through the gate, we have a couple of years before we get close to those kind of numbers!!! but if you are planning to camp on friday and saturday night you will have to get the weekend pass, day passes don't include camping. plus it saves you $5, which will get you a delicious something to drink from Picaroons. or a Folly Fest Flavoured ice cream (true story)


We will also be releasing the schedule on www.follyfest.com today if you are interested.

thanks!

Since we’ve packed so much music into Folly Fest this year (58 musical acts on 3 stages, over 3 days) We figured we should make it a little easier on everyone to make sure they didn’t miss their (new) favourite band.

Master of the internet Jon Dennis has been working furiously in his binary cave to create a build your own schedule system for Folly Fest. Create your Folly Fest schedule at home and print if off to take with you!

We encourage you to come back and see what we’ll be adding to the schedule in the next week in terms of circus/fire performers, live artists, workshops and much more.

This looks fantastic. I'm considering cancelling long pre-made plans just so I can make it for at least Saturday.

from www.follyfest.com...



So we know that drinking $5 beers all day can get a little pricey…even though $5 for a glass of Picaroons is still a pretty darn good investment if you ask me! But we’ve listened to feedback from festival goers and decided on a solution….

Daytime “Beat the Clock” bar pricing on all Picaroons Products! Starting at noon with 2 for 1 pricing, the cost will go up 50 cents an hour until we get back to our regular price of $5. pretty good, eh?

Noon – 1pm – $2.50 (that’s 2 for 1!!)
1pm – 2pm – $3.00
2pm – 3pm – $3.50
3pm – 4pm – $4.00
4pm – 5pm – $4.50
5pm – 2am – $5.00

We hope this is enough enticement to come over and experience the festival inside the gates. We have assembled a great daytime music lineup, the arts market is bigger than ever and there will be lots and lots of circus fun to be had!

Thanks to the Feelsgood/FollyFest crew and all the musicians!
Had a great weekend and no problems. (ok, we could have done without that downpour/storm on Saturday night)
Fun times!

I hope this was well-received. Kudos for responding to your audience. This is one of the best things I've heard of at a festival like this. Others should take notice.

Thanks to everyone who came out, that was definitely the most fun you can have during apocalyptic lightning storms....I thought Ben Caplan was a goner for sure for playing the most dangerous encore ever. And then having to create an entirely new stage/bar for Plants & Animals to play on due to our main stage being completely and utterly soaked in water was something I will never forget. Those guys were awesome, they just wanted to play.

and the daytime pricing went over well....we ended up selling 13 more kegs than we did last year. We feel its definitely worth it to get people at the main stage during the day. Although I hear there was some pretty mean jello wrestling going down in the camp ground...sad I missed that.
