Canada Rock Fest

Rock on! Legendary rock artists come together for three days at the Canada Rock Fest, held in Grand Forks, BC, August 6 - 8, 2020. 

The B-52s, REO Speedwagon, Three Dog Night, Extreme, and Starship featuring Mickey Thomas from the United States, and Canadian Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings touring together again for the first time since 2009 – a highly anticipated event for fans of The Guess Who and B.T.O. Other confirmed Canadian artists include Our Lady Peace, Toque, 54-40 and Snake Oil featuring former members of Harlequin, Streetheart and Prism. Additionally, an all-star lineup, including Todd Rundgren, Greg Hawkes (The Cars), Elliot Easton (The Cars), Dweezil Zappa, Denny Laine (Moody Blues/Wings), Jason Scheff (Chicago) and Joey Molland (Badfinger) will take the stage to perform their own greatest hits along with songs from The Beatles’ notable 1969 “Abbey Road” album.

RV parking, camping and other accommodations available, food, drink and retail vendors on site. A percentage of proceeds from the event will benefit local charities and Habitat for Humanity Kamloops will auction off a show-quality, collectible car to raise funds to build afforable housing in the Thompson and Cariboo Chilcotin regions of British Columbia. 

Canada Rock Fest replaces the previously announced Titans of Rock to further brand the festival as a Canadian event. Check out the Canada Rock Fest website for more details and tickets.
