The RTMF has grown to become one of Manitoba’s most loved and anticipated local music festivals. Taking place from August 16th to 18th the festival now features over 25 bands including Juniper Bush, Rob Knaggs, Pastoralia, Royal Canoe and more, the little festival that started with a daydream is stronger than ever… and still growing.

Hometown heroes Royal Canoe headline Saturday night at RTMF2019! Come bear witness to the weird and wonderful, bleeps, bloops, booms, and baps of these trout favourites.
Falcon Jane’s songs are beautifully balanced: honest yet subtle lyrics, straightforward yet ethereal production, and deeply emotional yet bright, fun songwriting.

Hosting along the banks of the Roseau River at ORoseau: Rapids Park Campground, RTMF offers a completely unique experience of a secluded, wondrous and natural setting. While you’re not taking in the great music, enjoy some time cooling off in the river with a swim, testing your luck with some fishing, or getting your heart beating with some great tubing or rafting. This is also a great place to get your paddle in the water. If you’re looking for a music festival that offers way more than music, then this is the place to head out!

Founded and organized by a dedicated group of volunteers, the RTMF holds true to their DIY roots while creating a safe, fun and unmatched summer festival experience. The only real question is, have you got your ticket yet?
