Photos: The Arkells please opening night crowd at Northern Lights Festival Boréal

Plenty more musical entertainment scheduled throughout the weekend

Northern Lights Festival Boréal is underway at Bell Park.

Kicking off the annual music festival was the Arkells. 

NLFB 2018 features a diverse lineup of performers ranging from Canadian legends to the undiscovered masters, from tradition to innovation.

The lineup also includes Saturday indie headliner Alvvays, Juno nominated Cree/Dene/Irish artist Iskwé, folk veteran Connie Caldor, ‘folk-trash’ Friday headliner Lisa LeBlanc and much more.

For a full lineup and schedule, click here.

While enjoying the festival this year, keep an eye out for our reporters Allana McDougall and Gia Patil and the " Truth Tent." 

It's a blanket fort (yes, an epic festival blanket fort!!) that will be located on an elevated platform just off a walking path between the family stage and the main stage.

Allana and Gia will be playing a modified game of "Truth or Dare," that is mostly "Truth" amidst the linens. Come in, relax, and answer some questions — those who participate will have a chance to win prizes.
