“The lineup for the 2018 version of Lupercalia has been released and it has been affectionately nicknamed “the women and children first edition.”
The mid-winter festival will again be centred at the Heartwood Concert Hall on Feb. 16 and 17 during the Family Day long weekend, and this year’s lineup features a strong contingent of women and young people.” – Rob Gowan
