Excitement over Stanley Cup Game 6 reaches a fever pitch in Edmonton
For the better or worse, the Edmonton Oilers will take on the Florida Panthers for the final time on home ice during Game 6 of the Stanley Cup final, and the excitement in the Alberta capital is palpable. As Morgan Black explains, hockey fans and media from all across the world have their eyes on the city. – Jun 20, 2024

Two JUNO Award-winning bands will entertain Oilers fans for Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final in downtown Edmonton outside Rogers Place on Friday.

Toronto band The Beaches will perform, as will dance duo Loud Luxury.

The show is free, put on by Rogers and OEG Sports & Entertainment. Fan Park gates open at 2:30 p.m. and performances will begin at 4 p.m. The game starts at 6 p.m. MST.

This final round of the Stanley Cup Final has attracted some big musical acts to Edmonton. Last Thursday, Canadian rockers Our Lady Peace played and then on Saturday, country icon Shania Twain performed.

Friday is another win-or-go-home game for the Oilers, who won Game 5 in Florida on Monday against the Panthers. The Panthers lead the series 3-2.

The Beaches was recently named “Canada’s Group of the Year” by Billboard Canada.

They were scheduled to be in Alberta for the Beaumont Music Festival, where they are Saturday night’s headliner.

“Of course we were willing to help,” the festival’s executive director Jeremy Kornel said. “We’re an all-Canadian music festival! We love Canadian music as much as we love hockey.

“We’re thrilled to know that whether fans are with us in Beaumont Friday night to watch the Headstones headline our stage, or in the Ice District watching the Beaches pump up Edmonton Oilers fans for Game 6, that we were able to put great Canadian music in front of them,” Kornel said, adding: “Oilers in 7!”

Both groups hail from Ontario. The duo behind Loud Luxury — Andrew Fedyk and Joe Depace — met at Western University.
