Complete bill unveiled for end-of-summer festival
Tickets go on sale June 19 for this year's Summerfest and the lineup for the end-of-summer event looks like it has a little something for everyone.
SummerFest is set for Aug. 21-24 at Bell Park. Main stage concerts are held at the Grace Hartman Amphitheatre and secondary stages are set up throughout the park. The festival also offers a carnival, water-ski show, craft vendors, numerous food vendors and various other entertainers for the whole family. Admission to the park is free.
“Summerfest went though more than 50 artists and bands this year, trying to stay true to bringing the best of Canadian talent,” said event spokesperson and board member Chris Nerpin. “We are very pleased with what we have been able to bring to fans here in Sudbury.
Summerfest opens Aug. 21 with a country music night, featuring performers Gord Bamford and Brett Kissell, with the opening act being Sudbury’s own Mike Trudell.
Friday night features some classic Canadian rock when Loverboy hits the stage, along with Prism.
Come Aug. 23, a trio of rock bands will rock the amphitheatre. Wide Mouth Mason and Danko Jones will warm up the crowd in preparation for the rockin' bluesy sounds of Big Sugar.
And finally, Summerfest will close out this year’s festival on Sunday night with Kristina Maria and Down With Webster.
Concert tickets start at $19.92 (plus taxes and fees) and go on sale June 19th at noon. Tickets for Thursday and Friday night are already available online at Sudbury Theatre Centre.
