Broken Social Scene, Wilco, Steve Earle, Sun Kil Moon and More to Play Vancouver as Part of 2010 Olympics Celebrations
The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games have received their fair share of criticism, but we bet any music-loving protesters never took into account all the concerts that will be gracing the city come February. The Cultural Olympiad will feature over 100 shows in a variety of venues, and will showcase some of Canada's finest talent, as well as a few prominent international artists.

As previously reported, on February 13, the evening after the opening ceremony, much-loved Chicagonians Wilco will play a free show at David Lam Park in downtown Vancouver. And now we know that on February 18, a cast of all-star musicians will pay tribute to Neil Young at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.

Like most things Olympics, tickets to the Neil Young event are steep, starting at $59 and running as high as $74.50, but it may be worth it, considering that the line-up includes Broken Social Scene, Joan as Policewoman, Iron and Wine, Ron Sexsmith, Sun Kil Moon and more.

Also, a whole pile of other notables have been recently announced to take part in the Cultural Olympiad, including K'naan, Steve Earle, Joel Plaskett, Blue Rodeo and Stars.

There are a lot of events to sift through but a list of everything lined up so far for the Cultural Olympiad can be found here
