Sure, we haven’t even got to the March Break or Easter yet, but you may want to start planning ahead already for your Canada Day long weekend.

Canadian rockers The Tragically Hip have announced they’ll headline an outdoor concert at Butler’s Barracks in Niagara-on-the-Lake on Saturday, June 30.

The show, expected to draw about 20,000 music lovers, is being planned as part of the festivities to commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812.

The Hip will be joined on the bill by three other popular bands — Death Cab for Cutie, The New Pornographers and The Rural Alberta Advantage.

Tickets go on sale Saturday, March 3 at 10 a.m. and are bound to sell quickly. They’re available at all Ticketmaster outlets, or by calling 416-870-8000.
