Concerned Rock the Lake ticket holders finally have an answer to the question they've been asking: will the concert at Prospera Place in Kelowna go going ahead this summer?

GSL Group has announced that this year's Rock the Lake music festival has been cancelled. It plans to hold the event August 6 to 8, 2021.

Those who purchase passes for this year's festival have the option to hold onto their tickets and use them next summer.

For a refund, ticket holders must contact the Select Your Tickets Box Office before June 30, 2020, after which all tickets will be non-refundable and only honoured for next year. 

The announcement from organizers follows frustration from many ticket holders, who complained that they received no communication regarding cancellation. Some were even considering boycotting the event in the future, as they felt the situation was handled poorly. 

“We understand this is a challenging time for many in our community and the decision to reschedule Rock the Lake for 2021 will allow us to provide a safe experience and environment for our guests, artists, team and partners,” GSL Group president and CEO Graham S. Lee said in a media release today, May 28.

“We believe in the power of live music to bring people together and look forward to seeing everyone for another fantastic weekend of classic rock in 2021," Lee said.
