The artists are legendary, the venue is iconic and the concerts will be historic. The line-up is confirmed and Mission Hill Family Estate is proud to announce the performers appearing this summer at the winery's spectacular outdoor amphitheatre. The two live musical performances include a 17 time Grammy Award winning musical legend Tony Bennett on Friday, August 1 and the Gipsy Kings 25th Anniversary Tour on Sunday, August 24.

"A concert performance under the open sky at our outdoor amphitheatre is a truly unforgettable experience," says proprietor Anthony von Mandl. "There is something extraordinarily special about this intimate hilltop location; a wonderful outdoor concert experience reminiscent of the grand performances staged at Europe's historic open-air Roman amphitheatres. We are thrilled to welcome these legendary musical performers to the winery this summer."

A concert performance under the open sky at our outdoor amphitheatre is a truly unforgettable experience.

Tickets for the 2014 performances in Mission Hill's intimate 1,000 seat amphitheatre will go on sale Wednesday, April 30 and are expected to once again sell out quickly as these summer concerts become the hallmark of the summer in the Okanagan Valley.

With the creation of the amphitheatre, Proprietor Anthony von Mandl, a strong proponent of the arts, created a unique opportunity to enjoy live music performances in an unrivalled setting. Situated on a prominent hill rising above the Okanagan Valley with majestic mountains and a scenic lake creating the perfect backdrop, guests enjoy a gorgeous summer evening of music, wine and cuisine at a concert venue unlike any other.

Each year this spectacular venue attracts celebrated artists from around the world who are searching to engage with their fans on a more intimate level. Artist that have graced the stage at Mission Hill include: Chris Botti, Chris Isaak, Lyle Lovett, LeAnn Rimes and The Tenors, among others. For artists normally reserved for much larger venues the small capacity Amphitheatre provides a rare treat for those in attendance.

His signature tunes, such as Steppin' Out With My Baby and I Left My Heart In San Francisco form part of the fabric of American music culture. Often billed as the world's most boyish octogenarian, Tony Bennett is a vital musical artist at the peak of his powers who will perform for the first time at Mission Hill Family Estate.

The Gipsy Kings have sold more than 14 million albums and will bring their vigorous guitar work and passion as they introduce fans to 'Rumba Gitano' - the sound of South America's rumba rhythm married to flamenco guitars. With the Gipsy Kings 25th anniversary tour the audience at Mission Hill will experience the platinum-selling artists for the second consecutive year in the spectacular setting of Mission Hill's open-air amphitheatre.
