Its not just a bluesfest, all kinds of music on, if memory serves, at least 5 stages, with a mainstage capacity of well over 20,000.  Don't remember what the camping opportunities were, the park is in the city, about a mile from Parliament.

Also that day (so far) are Matt Andersen, Vintage Trouble, Andrew Bird, Black Joe Louis, Deer Tick, Langhorne Slim.  Other days' headliners include Blake Shelton, The Killers, Queens of the Stone Age, Lady Antebellum, etc etc.  Many more to come. http://ottawabluesfest.ca/home/

And if you go, wear a hard hat.  Here's what happened during the Cheap Trick set a couple years ago:

Have a friend in Ottawa who tipped me off on this, this morning. I just came on to post and Craven beat me to it. JJ is on Saturday, so I might try to get there. Matt Andersen is worth a look if he ever shows up at a festival near you. I brag about him all time on here, but he's the real deal. Plus he's from my area, so I have to give him the props.

Yes, Matt Andersen is the real deal.  Can't remember where I saw him last - might have been Mont Tremblant? 

Now if JJG&M get booked for Mont Tremblant, which is the same timeframe as Ottawa, it would defnily warrant consideration for a trip across the border.
