Swedish folk-pop duo First Aid Kit, which consists of the sisters Klara (vocals/guitar) and Johanna Söderberg (vocals/keyboards/Autoharp/bass guitar), started to upload their self-made songs to the social networking site MySpace in 2007, then in April 2008 saw the release of the debut EP ‘Drunken Trees’ in Sweden. Since then they have released 4 full length albums made up of swooping melodies, contemplative lyrics and familiar harmonies, plus selling out shows all across the world.

The festival takes place on July 5. 6. 7, 2019 at Tudhope Park in Orillia, Ontario.
