Salty Jam Festival Gets Federal Funding



The federal government is giving over $13 thousand dollars to the organizers of the Salty Jam Festival.
M-P Rodney Weston made the announcement today, and says the money comes from the Building Communities Through Arts and heritage program.
Chair Renea Sleep says the money is allowing organizers to put on more free shows, and also increase the amount of artists.
Over 50% of the artists performing are local, with the entire lineup being Canadian.
Headliners include Plants and Animals, and Tokyo Police Club.
The event runs through July 9th to 11th, at various venues across along the Saint John Waterfront.
