Ben Caplan is thrilled to announce his upcoming performance at the legendary Glastonbury festival, a West Coast Canadian tour and an all around busy summer filled with festival appearances. Glastonbury was founded in 1970. The long running festival in Somerset England will have Caplan sharing a bill with Rolling Stones, Mumford & Sons, Vampire Weekend, Phoenix, Smashing Pumpkins, Elvis Costello, Portishead, Public Enemy, Nas, Tyler the Creator, Alabama Shakes, Jake Bugg and many more. Glastonbury is taking place on June 28th-30th in Somerset, UK. More info on this year’s festival can be found here: http://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/ 

This weekend Caplan found himself on the other side of the world, performing at The Byron Bay Bluesfest, Australia’s premier blues and roots music festival. Ben’s international popularity is continuing to grow, and our favourite beard can be found on the cover of Sydney’s largest circulating free music publication -The Drum Media!

Following Australia, Caplan jets off to Europe for an extensive tour throughout The Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Denmark, Switzerland, and Norway solo. Then finally Caplan will return to Canadian soil for a west coast tour with performances scheduled in Saskatchewan, British Columbia and Alberta. He will kick off this leg of the tour with a special show at The Rivoli in Toronto on June 8th (tickets are now available).

This year’s East Coast Music Awards solidified his position as a cultural fixture with his win for the “Rising Star recording of The Year”. Caplan continues to dazzle audiences internationally. With years of touring experience under his belt, the Halifax native has no intention of slowing down. One thing’s for certain, his infectious melodies and commanding voice are guaranteed to be a hit wherever he happens to grace the stage. For full tour dates see below.
