“This will be the first time Body Count, House of Pain and Magic! are playing the Island, and the 25th anniversary tour of House of Pain, which will include original members Everlast and DJ Lethal,” she said.

The list now includes Daniel Wesley, Five Alarm Funk, Delinquent Habits, The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer, Forgotten Rebels, Funkdoobiest, Mat the Alien, The Gaff, Kytami, Bend Sinister, Dayglo Abortions, Illvis Freshly, Caleb Hear & the Royal Youths, Power Clown, Antipolitic, Cocaine Moustache, Getaway Sticks, and Ganjo Bassman.

Just added to the lineup are Daniel Wesley and Dehli 2 Dublin: two more great reasons to take in the event.

Legends Valley is not just a music festival, but also the home base of Bio Cup Canada, a celebration of cannabis culture, including an international growers’ competition, exhibitors, educational seminars and more.
