Volkswagen Celebrates 10 Years of Musical Innovation at the 2009 Tremblant International Blues Festival

MONTREAL, QUEBEC and AJAX, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 2, 2009) - For the tenth year in a row, Volkswagen Canada is proud to present the Tremblant International Blues Festival to be held from July 10 to 19, 2009. Blues fans will get to take in all the sounds of innovation at the Volkswagen stage with Jonas, Tribute to the Kings, Ladies' Night, Edgar Winter, and Steve Hill and the Majestics, as well as several other outstanding blues performances.

During this year's Festival, lovers of the Blues are invited to drop into the TDI Zone where they'll be introduced to Volkswagen's award-winning TDI Clean Diesel technology in an exciting and interactive environment. They'll be able to test-drive a Volkswagen guided by a professional driver, speak with a Volkswagen product specialist on hand for the occasion, and get their picture drawn by a caricaturist in a surprising new style. Volkswagen will also offer free fill-ups of water bottles during the Festival, and its Team BlueMotion will be on-site to promote recycling and share ways to help sustain the environment. As a special thank you, Volkswagen owners will be able to take advantage of exclusive benefits like V.I.P. Parking, windshield washer fill-ups, and even a few more surprises at this year's Tremblant International Blues Festival powered by Volkswagen.
