  • The festival sells out of tickets for its first time. Saturday sees over 6,000 people pack into Bissell Park… a greater amount than the number of people who live in town!
  • The festival books its first international artist, the Screaming Eagle of America, Charles Bradley. Bradley finishes his show in the audience, giving out hugs and kisses for almost an hour.
  • 2014 marked the addition of another proper stage, the Tent Stage, set up on the park’s basketball court/ice pad. The inaugural performer was Kim Churchill.
  • Bahamas gets added to the bill last minute. He celebrates his third album (Bahamas is Afie) release at the festival.
  • Dan Mangan and Jada Kelly join Blue Rodeo on the stage for the festival’s closing number.
