Come by the hills to the land where life is a song.
And sing while the birds fill the air with their joy all day long.
Where the trees sway in time, and even the wind sings in tune.

Come by the Hills, a traditional song (sung by both Celtic Thunder (Damian McGinty), and Canadian Loreena McKennitt) perfectly describes a music festival nestled in the beautiful Battle River Valley in East Central Alberta.

We had an amazing weekend of friends, food, weather, and most importantly MUSIC at the 2014 Come by the Hills Music Festival.  The line-up was amazing!  Get your tents and campers ready… we are hoping to do it all over again in August 2015 out at the Mistahiya hills.

Thanks for sharing the weekend with us.  It was the first time in our four-year history that we were self-sustaining.  Yes!  When the dust settled, we had actually made a little bit of money that we can turn around and invest in talent for 2015.  The Battle River Music Society (and its amazing group of volunteers) has already sat down to review the successes and challenges associated with our 2014 festival, and started the wheels turning to bring you and even bigger and better festival weekend in 2015.  Stay tuned to this site and Facebook for more updates.
