The biannual Cohen Event organized by The Leonard Cohen Files has combined forces with the annual "Leonard Cohen Nights" festival in Edmonton and will be bigger + better than ever! The 2008 event will feature concerts, open mike performances, poetry readings, and a visual arts display as well as a wide variety of participant activities and for the first time ever! a 24hr hospitality suite.

The main event, held Saturday July 26th at the Winspear Centre, will feature headliner JANN ARDEN as well as many other well-known Canadian musicians (featured below).
