MUSIC AT BAND ON THE RUN

Music is a HUGE part of the Band on the Run. Runners will be serenaded by live bands along the route and at the start/finish line.

Doors open at 1:30pm.

Kids 12 and under are free.

Tickets $30 in advance and $35 at the door.*
*Only non-registered runners need tickets.

LAGANZA WITH TOBIN SPRING

Laganza, led by Tobin Spring, will start things off. Tobin Spring = Fun. That’s the heart of it. He’s be playing songs you know and love.

THE 2017 HEADLINE BAND: HEY ROSETTA!

We are delighted to have this amazing Canadian band headlining the 2017 Music Festival. Their shows are pure fun which is, after all, what Band on the Run is all about!

Hey Rosetta! is a seven-piece indie rock band hailing from St. John’s Newfoundland, who have blown audiences away for over a decade. They have been recognized with multiple East Coast Music Awards, been short listed for the Polaris Prize and nominated for Juno awards. Plus they are awesome!

PLANTS AND ANIMALS

Plants and Animals are a Montreal-based trio that began playing together as kids, emerged on the international scene in 2008 and have developed a varied cult following ever since, built this on the shoulders of their self-produced records, their intense live show, or both-depending on who you ask. April 2016’s “Waltzed In From the Rumbling” is their first album in nearly four years. It is Plants and Animals’ most soulful and inventive collection of music yet. Eleven soundtracks for leaps taken, ships sailed, dark water and pink skies.

ALL MORNING RUN PARTICIPANTS RECEIVE FREE ADMISSION TO THE MUSIC FESTIVAL.

Your ticket will be your race bib.
