The provincial government will sponsor free transportation at this year’s Cloggeroo Festival to help keep visitors safe.
The Liquor Control Commission is supporting a free shuttle service for PEI’s annual folk festival, which will bring musicians and fans from across Canada, the US, and around the world to the banks of the Brudenell River in Georgetown starting Friday and running through til Sunday.
Shuttle vans operate for festival pass holders around the town and between the festival and campground until 2 a.m. each of the three days.
Minister Heath MacDonald, who is responsible for the PEI LCC, says they’re pleased to partner with local volunteers of Cloggeroo 2018 for the first time ensuring festival goers have free access to transportation.
The free shuttle service has been applauded by the town of Georgetown and local RCMP, who say they are encouraged by the pro-active initiative by festival organizers to increase safety and decrease the chances of impaired driving.
The 2018 Cloggeroo folk festival features 18 bands playing over the weekend including Juno award winners Rose Cousins, MonkeyJunk, as well as much-loved favourites Grand Theft Bus, Slowcoaster, Vishtèn, Mellotones, – with genres from folk to jazz to soul to boogie woogie.
