Rock The Park has announced a fifth night of music for its upcoming summer festival in London, Ont.
The night will feature country stars like Dierks Bentley, Ashley McBryde, Breland, and the Canadian duo, The Reklaws.
It is in addition to four other nights of music, one of which will feature pop star Alanis Morrissette.
The festival will now take place in Harris Park from July 13-17.
“We know how much our fans love country music, so we couldn’t pass up bringing Dierks to Rock The Park, especially with his original show in London being cancelled earlier this year due to the pandemic,” says Brad Jones, president of the Jones Entertainment Group.
“It’s been a long few years for everyone, so we’re going to give our country fans a night to remember and help them forget about the past two years.”
The night was added after Jones wrote a letter to city council, saying an additional show would have a positive impact on the local economy in London.
