Rock The Lake schedule released

Tickets for three days of Canadian rockers performing outdoors in downtown Kelowna are expected to hot items this summer.

The first Rock The Lake event sold out in Kelowna last August.

Organizers of the Rock The Lake event planned for the parking lot of Prospera Place in Kelowna Aug. 11-13 have released the schedule of performers.

April Wine, Kim Mitchell and Honeymoon Suite will headline the three days of the event, with Toronto and Platinum Blonde joining April Wine Aug. 11, Doug & The Slugs, Sass Jordan and Rik Emmett playing with Mitchell Aug. 12 and Carol Pope, Helix and Chilliwack joining Honeymoon Suite on Aug 13.

Gates will open at 5 p.m. on Aug. 11 and at 2:30 p.m. on both the 12th and 13th. The music is scheduled to wrap up all three days at 10 p.m.

Organizers say fewer than 50 full, three-day event passes remain for the festival, the second to feature a bevy of Canadian rockers popular during the 1980s.

Last year’s inaugural event was deemed a great success by organizers, Prospera Place owners RG Properties.

In addition to the schedule, it was announced single day passes will go on sale Feb. 3 at 10 a.m., with only 300 tickets for each day to be made available.

The cost of full, three-day event passes is $143.00, single day pass cost $54.50 each and VIP passes cost $443.00. All prices include GST and can be bought by phone at 250-762-5050, through or at the Prospera Place box office. Service charges may apply.
