Published Jul 04, 2012Earlier today (July 4), we reported that Joel Plaskett will be hitting up Vancouver this summer for a performance at the city's Shorefest, and now organizers have revealed the full lineup for the event, which runs jointly with the Celebration of Light fireworks festival.
A press release from organizers at Shore 104.3 FM lays out three separate show days taking place in July and August. The opening night happens July 28, when throughout the day the Rogue Stage at Sunset Beach will include performances from Barney Bentall, Harry Manx, and Jim Byrnes with Steve Dawson. Bahamas, meanwhile, will headline the evening performing from the top of an English Bay bathhouse.
Among others, the Be Good Tanyas and Dustin Bentall will tackle the Rogue Stage on August 1, while the Trews and Jets Overhead will play the bathhouse.
The aforementioned Plaskett set will take place August 4 on the Rogue Stage, which will also feature performances from Bocephus King and the Great Lake Swimmers. Hannah Georgas and Said the Whale will perform at the bathhouse.
"With dozens of free concerts and spectacular fireworks displays this is the perfect way to take full advantage of what will be an incredible Vancouver summer," Shore 104 operations manager and brand director Ronnie Stanton said in a statement.
