Big Music Fest deemed a success by fans and organizers. Fans have been rocking out to different sounds at McLennan Park all weekend long. Festival president Mark Higgins says in total, around 50,000 people attended.
It was one of the most anticipated events in the history of Canadian music. The Tragically Hip, Canada’s most beloved rock band, was headlining a festival concert in Bobcaygeon—the small Ontario town, population 2,500, that inspired one of the group’s most popular and enduring songs. 25,000 fans from across North America and Europe would make the pilgrimage.
The concept of FUZEnation was developed by Toronto musician, concert promoter, and serial entrepreneur Mark Higgins. According to press material supplied by the event, Higgins “approached award-winning, Los Angeles live event expert, artist manager, and talent producer Rebecca Lambrecht Warfield to partner on the FUZE concept, knowing she would immediately see its international potential. Managing Steven Tyler among other clients with business partner and renowned veteran manager, Larry Rudolph at ReignDeer Entertainment, Rebecca was excited to come on board to launch the event.”
