PENTICTON - If rock and roll is your music of choice, the lineup of tribute acts scheduled for the 69th annual Penticton Peach Festival should blow you away.

Peachfest is teaming up with the Penticton Speedway to host rock tribute night on Saturday, Aug. 6, at Okanagan Lake Park in Penticton.

Forever Young will perform a tribute to Neil Young with Summerland’s Kevin Foley delivering a vocal performance which sounds uncannily like Neil Young.

Willy and the Poor Boys will be performing the biggest and best hits of the legendary Creedence Clearwater Revival, one of rock’s most popular and influential bands.

High Voltage will round out the evening with a tribute to AC/DC, marking the group’s sixth appearance at Peachfest.

There’s no admission charge for Rock Tribute Night.
