The first edition of this Canadian Independent Rock Festival would naturally be held in Vevey, ( near Monteux) Switzerland, new home to many of the musicians due to its love of art and community building.
Heartlands Music Festival will be highlighting Canadian bands from November 10-13 in Vevey at the Salle de Castillo. This is a very rare chance to see so many excellent Canadian bands at one time even Stateside. But never in Switzerland! Local and tourist music lovers in Switzerland and neighboring countries will witness and enjoy performances by some of the best indie musicians these days.
