Well known Canadian musicians will take the stage at the upcoming Fest2Fall music festival this September.

The Beaches, Bahamas, Tim Baker and JJ Wilde were unveiled as the headline acts this afternoon by event organizers.

The second annual festival runs Sept. 19 and 20.

Bahamas is set to perform on Sept. 19, along with Tim Baker.

The Beaches, meanwhile, hit the stage on Sept. 20 with JJ Wilde also set to serenade the crowd on the second day.

Additional acts will be announced leading up to the fall.

The festival is also changing venues.

Held in Dickson Park in 2023, the festivities will shift to the Gaslight District this year.

Moving to the city's newest entertainment spot was a logical choice for co-owner of Farm League Brewing, Collin MacKinnon.

MacKinnon, who called the new district "the best entertainment complex in the region," and Farm League Brewing are curating the event alongside host Tige Wright.

"It came out of nowhere," MacKinnon said recently about how organic the talks with the Gaslight District were.

"Last year was great. We felt good about the property and the response exceeded what I expected. We knew the team at Gaslight, but never knew where they stood on outside events. We put our heads together and it made the most sense to move the festival over there."

Food options, beverage offerings, and art and culture activations are also on the schedule as MacKinnon hopes to build one of the country's premier music festivals.

"There's definitely a hunger for this type of event," he said.

"The feedback we got was Cambridge is a changing community. There's lots of great programming for food, beverage and culture but there's a gap in large scale music. This is going to be a whole different beast and the first chapter in becoming one of Canada’s best music festivals."
