Blue Rodeo to headline 2012 Rockin' River Fest
Canadian rockers Blue Rodeo and Randy Bachman are set to anchor the star-studded musical lineup for this year’s Rockin’ River Music Festival that will take place next August in Mission.
This week Rockin’ River Music Festival organizers announced for the first time that the summer festival will include confirmed artists Blue Rodeo, Randy Bachman, George Canyon, One More Girl, Ridley Bent, Aaron Pritchett, Victoria Banks, Karen Lee Batten and many others.
Also on the bill are locals like Kenny Hess, Brent Lee, Tyler Whelan, Todd Richards, Chris Buck Band, The Matinée, Shane Chisholm and Stacey McKitrick. And still more acts are expected to be announced as additions to the Rockin’ River festival lineup in the months to come.
Organizers promise that the Lower Mainland’s biggest country music event will be the best yet, expanding from two to three nights this year.
“We’re very excited about this year’s show and we’re expecting it to be bigger and better than ever,” says Hess, the festival’s organizer and one of its performers.
Rockin’ River Music Festival takes place Aug. 9-11 at Mission Raceway Park (32670 Dyke Rd., Mission). Early bird tickets and camping reservations are now available at rockinriverfest.com.
