Ashley Capps’ AC Entertainment has helped transform the festival scene with the annual Bonnaroo festivals it presents with Superfly each June in Tennessee. Capps revealed to Knoxville News Sentinel that AC Entertainment will bring its expertise to a new festival that will launch near Toronto in 2015.

“We’re working with great Toronto-based partners, Republic Live, and we’re very, very excited about this,” Capps explained. “It’s an amazing site, and it, like Bonnaroo, will be a camping festival.” While Capps doesn’t go into further detail on what’s in store for the Canadian festival, Festival Snobs reports the event will be called HomeAway and will take place “about an hour north of Toronto in summer 2015.” Festival Snobs added that “while an official location for HomeAway has yet to be announced, Republic Live recently signed a long-term agreement with Stan Dunford, the new owner of Burl’s Creek, a 700-acre slab of pristine parkland just outside Barrie, Ontario.”

We’re sure we’ll hear plenty more about this new festival in the months to come.
