Last week we had the start of a rumour that Boots & Hearts may be leaving Bowmanville and Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. And then, out of thin air, we got a HUGE (and unexpected) announcement on CityTV’s Breakfast Television as Florida Georgia Line let is slip that they will be headlining the festival in 2015.
Later in the day Boots & Hearts confirmed the FGL announcement in a Facebook post and then gave us something more to get excited about.
And since I do make a habit of predicting things for Boots & Hearts, I’m going to do it again right here, right now!
1) Confirmation of Venue
Whether Boots & Hearts 2015 will be at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville or Burl’s Creek Family Park in Oro Station, we don’t know. But any announcement on Tuesday should include the answer.
2) Full Weekend and Camping Tickets on Sale
People have been begging for ticket sales info on Facebook. And this is the longest anyone has ever had to wait to purchase their B&H passes – opening sales (or announcing a sale date in the near future) and moving forward with Boots & Hearts 2015 seems like a solid expectation for this announcement.
3) More Acts Announced for Boots & Hearts 2015!
A source tells me that the Republic Live and Boots & Hearts team had acts lined up as far back as the weekend of the 2014 festival – and with Florida Georgia Line confirmed, it makes sense that more acts could be announced as well to encourage ticket sales and excitement.
4) All of the Above
The fans have been waiting. They are ready and willing to spend their money – and more than anything they are starved for information. An announcement that confirms venue, ticket sales and acts would certainly start to satisfy the masses. And while there will never be consensus on these things (people will either be disappointed that the venue is moving or it isn’t, some will be upset about ticket prices, and fans will beg for their favourite acts and complain about acts they don’t care for) the announcement needs to be made.
We’ll have some or all of the answers on Tuesday – and then we can start talking about how we feel about them and what might come next.
Work hard. Play harder. Be awesome.
