PENTICTON - The 2015 Penticton Peach Festival has a special treat for rock music fans.
The Peach Festival, in conjunction with Penticton Speedway, will host a ‘Rock Tribute Night’ on Saturday, Aug. 8.
The concert begins with ‘Forever Young’, a tribute to Canadian music legend Neil Young. That will be followed by ‘Legzz’, who have been called the best ZZ Top tribute band in Canada.
Headlining the evening will be ‘High Voltage’ with their incredible vocal and visual performance of AC/DC songs.
“It is going to be a great night,” said Peach Festival Entertainment Director Bill Kolter. “We have hosted tribute bands before, but never a line-up like this.”
Only a select group of bands have been invited back to Peach Festival for multiple appearances. And ‘High Voltage’ is in that group. This will be their fifth appearance on the Peters Bros. Paving main stage, in Okanagan Lake Park.
Kolter said, “Every year, people ask us to bring back High Voltage. In fact, saying that fans demand we bring them back would be more accurate.”
There is no admission charge for Tribute Night or any of the other entertainment during the festival.
The 68th annual Peach Festival is scheduled Aug. 5-9. For further information, go to peachfest.com.
