Free Retro Concert Weekend Returns to Sun Peaks

This weekend, August 12-15, Sun Peaks Resort plays host to the 7th annual Retro Concert Weekend. This free event features the legendary sounds of classic rock, performed by a collection of the best tribute bands from across the province.

This year`s lineup includes tribute bands playing the classics from The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Johnny Cash, Bob Seger, John Fogerty, Heart and Pat Benatar.

Connie Williamson, Events Manager for Tourism Sun Peaks, expressed her excitement for the annual concert weekend, "This event has become a fan-favourite of residents and guests alike. As one of our premier, free concert weekends, it has steadily been growing in popularity over the past 6 years, and is showing no signs of slowing down."

The free, live outdoor performances will take place on a stage positioned parallel to the carpet lift near the base of the Sundance Express Chairlift.
