Amazing Venue and Talent at the Neely G Festival of Music

 Festival of Music

A couple of weekends ago, I had the opportunity to attend the Neely G Festival of Music in Long Creek, N.B..

This was the festival’s inaugural year, so I was expecting a few small glitches in organizing such a massive endeavour, but that was far from the case.

The festival was held at the newly built R10 Venue located near Sussex, N.B. and is an easy drive from New Brunswick’s major cities of Saint John, Moncton and Fredericton.

The site itself is nestled in a rural setting with easy access to the four stages the festival featured. There were on site vendors providing all the food, drink and memorabilia to make your stay more enjoyable. There wasn’t on site tenting this year, however, there will be that option in 2016.

The sound systems for all the venues was fantastic and the main stage sound, lights, video system, and two huge stage flanking screens, were in a word, amazing!

Neely G presented acts from across Canada in many musical genres. There truly was something there for all tastes.
