Heat, Humidity, Thunder Don’t Keep Folkies from Winnipeg Folk Festival

Winnipeg Folk FestivalDespite the weekend’s scorching temperatures and an ill-timed thunderstorm, Winnipeg Folk Festival saw a rise in attendance in 2015.

The 42nd annual Winnipeg Folk Fest, which took place over four days this past weekend at Birds Hill Provincial Park, saw more than 16,000 people per day – 1,000 more per day over last year’s festival.

Unfortunately, a severe thunderstorm cut into the Main Stage act on Sunday, with Wilco having to leave the stage after three songs due to unsafe weather.
