There's less than a month before Mission Raceway Park is filled with thousands of people for one of the biggest three-day country music parties out there.

Running Aug. 7-9, there will be three stages showcasing more than 20 bands, including Rascal Flatts, Terri Clark, Gord Bamford, The Road Hammers, Hey Romeo, and Julian Austin.

Last year the festival fell just short of 30,000 people attending over three days. This year camping space has expanded again, and festival organizers are counting on even more people coming through the gates.

The 2014 event starts Aug. 7 with its Kickoff Party welcoming campers and music fans with Canadian country star Julian Austin and the Chris Buck Band. Some great tribute bands – Aerosmith Rocks, High Voltage (AC/DC) and Legzz (ZZ Top) – will also grace the three stages.

Tickets and camping reservations are now available at rockinriverfest.com, Lepp Farms in Abbotsford, as well as select Lower Mainland London Drugs and Lordco outlets.
