A year ago, when RBC Royal Bank Bluesfest in Ottawa announced a schedule of 2013 performers that included Rush and B.B. King, the local press hailed a "monster line-up."

And now this.

Lady Gaga, the Mother Monster herself, is set to headline 2014's blues-plus blowout in the capital city. Marking its 20th year, Ottawa Bluesfest announced its first round of performers on Wednesday.
