Sarnia’s Festival of Good Things has announced its headliner act for September 3, which will take place at Cantara Park.

The Rural Alberta Advantage, which is based in Toronto, is a three-piece indie-rock outfit that has received critical acclaim from media outlets such as Rolling Stone, SPIN, The New York Times, and NPR among others.

The group has twice been nominated for a Juno (Best New Group, Video of the Year), a Long List Nomination for Polaris Music Prize, and a hard-earned reputation as one of the most impressive live bands you’ll ever see.

An “official” music video of the group can be seen below:

Tickets for the concert will be available beginning July 4 online at www.festivalofgoodthings.com. Weekend Passes will be available for $20. Single tickets will be made available for $15.

The festival itself will again be free to attend from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. with activities for all ages including the handmade market, Kidszone, community workshops, live music, great food and Ontario craft beer.
