This is the second year in a row the classic rock festival has been held, after being cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19.

“We’re super, super excited to be doing it again,” said Neil Donnelly, the chief executive officer for the Conexus Arts Centre.

He said above all the music, it’s the atmosphere that gets him most excited.

“It’s a great setting with Lake as the backdrop and the people that come, they all are there for great Canadian and American classic rock music,” Donnelly said.
