2019 Cavendish Beach Music Festival

Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood headlining the 2019 Cavendish Beach Music Festival

Who doesn’t love Carrie Underwood? Not only does she put on a fabulous show, she is one of country music’s most likeable entertainers. It was a rough start of the year for Carrie Underwood. In November of 2017, she fell outside her house, which caused some broken bones, as well as  reconstructive surgery on her face.

After her recovery, she released her latest album “Cry Pretty“, announced a tour, and is expecting another baby with husband Mike Fisher. Needless to say, it’s been a whirlwind for her and her family. We couldn’t be more excited to see her headlining on Saturday July 6 at the Cavendish Beach Music Festival in 2019.

Eric Church

Eric Church Headlines the 2019 Cavendish Beach Music Festival in PEI

Eric Church is another country artist who has had a big year. His album release “Desperate Man” is a true piece of art. We can’t wait to see (and hear) what he does with his performance at the 2019 Cavendish Beach Music Festival.

You can be sure he’s going to be playing lots of new music, but will definitely be playing everyone’s favourites including: “Springsteen”, “Round Here Buzz”, “Drink in My Hand”, and countless others. If you’ve never seen Eric Church live before, you NEED to make your way out to PEI this Summer to experience Church for yourself.

Eric Church will be the headlining act at Cavendish Beach on Sunday July 7 – and we can’t wait!

Hunter Hayes

Hunter Hayes has shaved his head

There are two pieces of news with the announcement that Hunter Hayes will be playing at Cavendish Beach Music Festival. First of all, we haven’t heard any new music from Hunter Hayes in what seems like forever, so this must mean that he will be dropping a new album this Spring! Secondly, and maybe even bigger news, HE CUT HIS DAMN HAIR?!

If you’ve never seen Hunter perform live, you’re in for a really good time at Cavendish. His stage presence is unlike any other. Hunter Hayes will be headlining Cavendish Beach Music Festival on Friday July 5, 2019.

Russell Dickerson

Russell Dickerson has seemed to come out of nowhere in the last 6 months or so. We saw his in 2018 at Boots & Hearts Music Festival, and we can tell you first had, that he knows how to get a crowd hyped. He commands the stage like nobody else! It’s a good thing he’ll be playing the Main Stage – he needs all that space to dance it out and connect with his audience.

If you’re looking for a good pick-me-up, Russell is your man! He will be playing the Main Stage on Saturday July 6, 2019.


Cam will be at the 2019 Cavendish Beach Music Festival

What a treat it will be to see Cam live at the 2019 Cavendish Beach Music Festival. Her music really connect with the audience. She writes from a place that everyone can relate to. Her breakout single “Burning House” dominated the charts in 2015, and we’re so happy to see her back with new music, and touring again.

She puts on such a great show, and she completely lights up whatever room, or venue, she walks into. She has a presence about her that just shines! If you haven’t heard her single “Down This Road”, then you really need to check it out.

Chad Brownlee

Canadian Country Artist Chad Brownlee Releases his new single "Forever's Gotta Start Somewhere"

Canadian country artist Chad Brownlee will be hitting the stage at the 2019 Cavendish Beach Music Festival. 2019 has been a pretty busy year so far for Chad. He’s realeased some great music, set to release a new album, and touring around the country. We’re looking forward to seeing Chad hit the stage on Saturday July 6, 2019.

High Valley

The Brothers Rempel, otherwise known as High Valley, will be headed to PEI to be part of the 2019 Cavendish Beach Music Festival. If you’ve never had the chance to see these two perform, you’re going to want to be sure to catch them as they play the Main Stage on Friday July 5th, 2019.

The Washboard Union

Canadian country band the Washboard Union

The Washboard Union have defied classification and have become one of the most exciting and talked about new bands in Country music. They’re a great group of guys and they sure know how to please a crowd! Don’t let those bushy beards fool you – these gents are the real deal and we couldn’t be more excited to get the chance to see them perform. They will be hittin the Cavendish stage on Sunday July 7, 2019.

Runaway June

Female Country Group Runaway June

Runaway June have been likened to The Dixie Chicks, but for a new generation. They also happened to be nominated for Best New Vocal Group at the 2018 ACM Awards. Runaway June’s organic three-part harmonies and ringing strings are sweeping the nation.  Since then, it has been announced that they are going out on the road opening for Carrie Underwood on her Cry Pretty Tour 360. They will be hitting the stage on Sunday July 7, 2019.

Shawn Austin

Shawn Austin, Canadian country artist released new single "You Belong"

Co-managed by Canadian country powerhouse Dallas Smith, Shawn Austin is one of the most exciting new voices in Canadian country music. With over 2.5 million streams to date, Shawn Austin has worked tirelessly to cement his place in the Canadian country music landscape.

We haven’t had the chance to see Shawn perform live yet, but we’re really looking forward to catching up with him at this year’s festival. He will be performing Saturday July 6, 2019.

Jade Eagleson

Jade Eagleson won the Emerging Artist Showcase at Boots & Hearts 2017

Seeing Jade Eagleson perform live, particularly at a music festival, brings us right back to Boots & Hearts 2017 where we first met Jade as he competed in, and ultimately won, the Emerging Artist Showcase. He has the kind of traditional sound that is the heart and soul of country music. He has a unique ability to take you back in time to the glory days of Johnny Cash – and he does a mean Shania Twain cover of “Man! I Feel Like a Woman”. Jade will be performing at Cavendish on Sunday July 7, 2019.

New Announcememt for Cavendish Beach Music Festival

In country music, the Front Porch has long been a place of reflection. A place where you can look at the life you have inside that front door. A place where time almost seems to stand still, where you can get away. It’s also a place where you can go to observe the world as it passes by you. To think about your place out there beyond the driveway.
