Ontario' Boots and Hearts has announced the full lineup for its long-awaited 2022 festival, which features its first entirely female, entirely Canadian main stage lineup led by headliner Shania Twain and artists like Lindsay Ell, Robyn Ottolini and more.
The festival, which takes place August 4 to 7 at Burl's Creek, also includes performances from Walker Hayes, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Andrew Hyatt, Dustin Lynch, Mackenzie Porter, Niko Moon, Meghan Patrick, Redhill Valleys and Priscilla Block, plus up-and-comers like Morgan Wade, Shy Carter and Callista Clark.
Hayes will kick off the festival with his performance on Thursday night, with Shania wrapping things up on Sunday. In a statement about her headlining performance, and the all-female main stage lineup that she's capping off, Twain said:
For as long as I've made music the festival space has been monopolized by white male acts, which didn't necessarily represent what was most popular in music — where women and people of colour were often dominating. So I'm very proud to headline a day of all-female acts at Boots and Hearts festival this year.
Change is slow but diversity is necessary because everyone deserves a platform and a stage to shine. I've said it before and I'll say it again – LET'S GO GIRLS! And let's support those festivals who make the effort to programme differently. See you soon Boots and Hearts festival.
