Stanley Park Brewery announced today the artist names and performance schedule for the musicians that will perform at “LIVE at Second Beach” as part of Celebrate! Stanley Park 125. The event is FREE and features a beer garden.

The all-Canadian line-up of musical artists includes: Arkells, Born Ruffians, We Are The City, The Matinee, You Say Party, The Belle Game, Ali Milner, Watasun and several more outstanding performers. The free outdoor concerts will take place in Ceperly Meadow at Second Beach in Stanley Park on August 24 and 25 to celebrate the heritage and 125th Birthday of the iconic park. The same place where the free outdoor movies take place.

The free festival offers two amazing Canadian headlining acts. Juno Award-winning Arkells are one of Canada’s best live acts, known for their foot stomping, sing-along inducing live performances. Indie rockers Born Ruffians are back in Vancouver for the second time this year and will be sure to make your ears ring. Supporting acts include Peak Performance Project Alumni’s We Are The City and The Matinee, indie up and comers The Belle Game, seasoned songstress Ali Milner and more.

As the presenting partner, Stanley Park Brewery hopes to make the summer celebration an annual event and invites people everywhere to come and raise a glass of Stanley Park beer to celebrate this incredible milestone on August 24 and 25.

“As a local family-owned and operated brewery, we are proud to be the presenting partner of this event to celebrate Vancouver’s beloved Stanley Park,” says Andy Murison, Vice President of Marketing, Stanley Park Brewery. “The heritage of our brewery dates back to 1897 and our goal is to honour the past while keeping British Columbia spectacular for future generations. We believe Lord Stanley would be proud of what we have done in his honour at Stanley Park Brewery and of the efforts of local businesses and community partners to join together to celebrate this tremendous milestone.”

In addition to the energetic and uncompromising live performances on the main stage, LIVE at Second Beach will offer food concessions, outdoor sports and a premium licensed area to enjoy Stanley Park Brewery’s fine selection of Belgian-styled craft beers with a separate beer garden acoustic stage featuring local singer-songwriters.
