SHOREfest 2012 Lineup Announced

Dec 19 2017, 5:57 am

SHORE 104.3 FM is fired up to announce the return of SHOREfest at the Honda Celebration of Light. This free concert series of outstanding Canadian bands runs all day before the fireworks at Sunset Beach and English Bay (July 28, August 1 and August 4).

SHOREfest represents the best Vancouver has to offer – free live music, incredible fireworks displays, a vendor village and spending the day (and night) with ocean views and sand between your toes. Talk about a perfect day out!

This year’s SHOREfest lineup presented by Shore 104 features national rockers, The Trews plus Said the Whale and Bahamas headlining the Shore 104 Stage in English Bay with Canadian icon Joel Plaskett, the Great Lake Swimmers and a rare appearance by The Be Good Tanyas performing on The Rogue Stage at Sunset Beach. Vancouver’s own Barney and Dustin Bentall, local legends Jim Byrnes and Steve Dawson as well as the rising talents of Jets Overhead, Hannah Georgas, Zaac Pick and a variety of roots performances featuring Harry Manx, Cousin Harley and Headwater round off the lineup over the two stages. All performances are free to watch with programming starting as early as 2pm.

“Shore 104 is excited to showcase such a diverse and exciting line up of Canadian artists,” said Ronnie Stanton, Operations Manager and Brand Director, Shore 104. “With dozens of free concerts and spectacular fireworks displays this is the perfect way to take full advantage of what will be an incredible Vancouver summer.”

Vancouverites and tourists are invited to bring blankets and head down to Vancouver’s waterfront early to snag a prime spot to enjoy the free entertainment before watching three new countries compete in the world’s largest offshore international fireworks competition: Vietnam (July 28), Brazil (August 1) and Italy (August 4).

Each night beginning at 10pm, the accompanying fireworks soundtrack will be simulcast live, and exclusively on SHORE 104 at 104.3 FM, on our iPhone app or online at
