The Edmonton Folk Music Festival (EFMF) announced its 2023 lineup Wednesday, with nearly 60 artists from across the country and around the globe.

The festival runs Aug. 10-13 at Gallagher Park.

The headliners of the festival will be Canadian singer-songwriter Feist on Thursday, Fleet Foxes on Friday, alternative country band Old Crow Medicine Show on Saturday and Ben Harper to close out the festival on Sunday.
