The festival made its home at Britannia Park for 15 years before moving to its latest home of Hog’s Back Park near Mooney’s Bay for the last four years.
The folk festival had increasingly embraced musical acts from other genres, and had been shedding its folk music roots. Monahan, festival director, said this shift — and the geographic move of the festival — spurred the name change.
Last year’s show featured performances by dozens of performers, including Lorde, The National, Neutral Milk Hotel and Joss Stone.
The festival is scheduled to run from Sept. 17-20, 2015. For more information visit www.CityFolkfestival.ca
