Haliboo MusicFest - Bowie Lives

It’s like two events for the price of one!

Really, what’s a summer event by the lake without music? Enjoy the sounds of Journey, Steely Dan, U2 (and a few surprises to be announced) as some of Canada’s best tribute bands play the music we love, on the shores of Head Lake in Haliburton.

Performances start in the early afternoon through to 11pm. Day, evening and value priced multiday ticket packages available. Haliboo MusicFest is a rain or shine event.
