PENTICTON — Peachfest is hosting its first ever Tribute Night during this year’s festivities.

Tribute bands, including Forever Young (Neil Young), High Voltage (AC/DC), and U4 (U2) will light up the beachfront of Lake Okanagan on Friday, Aug. 8, 2014.

“It will be quite a night,” said Bill Kolter, director of Peachfest Entertainment. The organizers have booked tribute bands before, including High Voltage and Forever Young, but they have never had a full night of purely tribute performances.

“People keep asking us to bring them back,” Kolter said of the AC/DC tribute band, who will play their fifth Peachfest this year. It will be the second appearance from Forever Young, and the first from U4.

Also taking the stage on other nights are classic bands Emerson Drive, Trooper and the Stampeders.

The 67th annual festival is scheduled August 6-10.  There is no admission charge.
