KELOWNA – Some of the biggest Canadian rock bands from the 1980s are coming to the Okanagan this summer to play the first annual Rock the Lake Festival.

The line-up for the three-day festival in the parking lot at Prospera Place in Kelowna on Friday, Aug. 12, Saturday, Aug. 13 and Sunday, Aug. 14 features the biggest bands from the decade.

Loverboy will headline Friday night, Streetheart on Saturday night and Trooper will wrap up the rockfest Sunday.

Prism, Doucette, Kick Ax, Lee Aaron, Harlequin, Nick Gilder and Sweeney Todd, Saga and the Headpins will be playing the festival as well.

According to a media release from Prospera Place, the festival grounds will have food, drinks, VIP access and “a generous in-and-out policy.”

The hope is festival-goers will enjoy the city and the beaches during the day, returning at night to rock-out.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Dec. 4 at 10 a.m. at the Select Your Tickets website, by phone at 250-762-5050 and at the Prospera Place Box Office.

A one-day pass will set you back $49.50 and a three-day pass costs $127.50. You’ll have to bring your own chair.
