Longtime Ottawa Bluesfest attendees will notice some changes to the festival's setup when they arrive at the Canadian War Museum on Thursday's opening night.

As the CBC's Sandra Abma explains in the video above, some stage locations and entrances have been shifted from previous years to try and help people move around the grounds more easily.

The festival's opening night brings in Danny Brown, Dean Brody, Tegan and Sara and Blake Shelton, with 10 nights of music lasting until Sunday, July 13.
