Crank the tunes at the cottage this summer! Celebrate Canadian talent with some of the best dock rock going because Canada is synonymous with cottage living in the summertime!


KD Lang, Neil Young, Tragically Hip, April Wine, Blue Rodeo and Jill Barber set the tone for Friday night and of course, what's a cottage party without a little BTO Takin' Care of Business?

• A little romance calls for some Michael Bublé

• Keep up-to-date with Arcade Fire, Sam Roberts and K-OS.

• Coffee on a Sunday morning gets mellow with Sarah McLachlan, Kellylee Evans and Feist.

Note: Thanks to Janice McDonald for suggestions.
