Photos: Logic & Crook the Kid held down Day 6 of Ottawa Bluesfest 2019
Ottawa Bluesfest 2019 is in full-swing, with an incredible lineup of acts holding down the various festival stages, and other supporting events popping up around the city. It’s always a great time to be in the in the nation’s capital during Bluesfest, and this year is proving to be no different.
And hip-hop was not to be played with this year; while some critics were saying it should have been a crazier lineup, we think it was the right cut.
Yesterday, the park was jam packed with fans waiting for US rap star Logic to hit the stage for his 9:30 p.m. performance. But before that, they gathered around the City Stage for Yellowknife rapper Crook the Kid who came out with no socks or shoes, performing in bare feet.
With his name displayed in big white block letters behind him, the rapper performed many of his old and new tracks and also brought out Indigenous Ottawa rapper Cody Coyote, as well as Yonatan Gat & The Eastern Medicine Singers, and DJ David Boa.
When it was time for Logic, the “1-800-273-8255” hit maker came out with unparalleled energy, quickly making it clear that he was there to put on a great show, and, of course, to spread mountains of positivity.
Logic engaged the crowd directly on several occasions, setting the tone for a very personal set. During the end of his performance, he stopped and asked the crowd if they were ready to head home, before cutting back into music and jamming out to some more of his latest records.

The lineup for today (July 11) includes Canadian super producer Murda Beatz, budding musician and producer Leikeli47, and more. You can visit the Ottawa Bluesfest website for the complete schedule.
