Jack Of Diamonds Rhythm and Roots Festival will begin on Friday. Many cool events will happen over the weekend in various venues around the city, so we thought an events guide could come in handy.

First, a few words about the festival. This year the Jack Of Diamonds Rhythm and Roots Festival will take place between August 17th and 19th. This will be a 3 day event showcasing the cities finest roots acts across its finest venues. All bands have been hand picked by the Jack Of Diamonds crew and they promise they are the sweetest, tastiest rhythm and roots bands the city has to offer. The festival will also be hosting music workshops to help people learn traditional instruments, as well as having day sessions and busking trails. Except for the workshops, the festival is free, so don’t miss out on some really cool gigs.
