Lightburn Entertainment is excited to announce a dynamic event to attend in the ComoxValley this July; Rhythm on the Rock Music Festival.
The festival’s focus is to celebrate the incredible talent hailing from right here in the valley, and also the best of the country’s up and coming musicians. Headlining the festival is the Comox Valley’s own Head of the Herd who were just announced as being considered the top 3 at the 99.3 the Fox Seeds contest! Joining them on the festival line-up is our local talent, Luke blu Guthrie, Multi-Colored Mischief, Des Larson band, as well as the Sunshine Coast’s Wilderness Crew, Regina Saskatchewan’s Northcote, Montreal’s bohemian pop songstress, Annie Becker. Last week at Comox Valley, Battle of the Bands an under 18 contest at Simms Park, Fiftieth Parallel (a two-piece band from Campbell river) was awarded the opening spot at Rhythm on the Rock for their amazing performance. This lineup promises to satisfy any festival attendee’s musical taste as it encompasses a variety of musical genres including rock, pop, electronic, hip hop, blue grass and folk.
The organizers were inspired last year after helping produce the one day concert series featuring Current Swell and Tech 9 at the Saratoga Speedway. They realized that there was overwhelming support from the fans to produce another festival that showcased the younger upcoming talent emerging on the west coast. In accordance with that, the organizers are striving to make it a “green”festival and are incorporating sustainable practices as well as inviting many of our local non-profits to attend, share information and spark discussion about the place we live. This will definitely be a celebration of music but also of the community and our beautiful home.
The Comox Valley community is joining hands with Lightburn Entertainment and Baird Entertainment to make this all ages festival a fantastic and memorable experience for everyone. With help from major sponsors such as 98.9 Jet Fm, Long and Mcquade, Roots the Salon, One Thirty Three Skate Shop, Sure Copy, What’s on Digest, Freshly Squeez’d Graphic Design, MyValley.ca, Union StreetGrill, The Bridge Lounge, Alberni Outpost and Surf SUP this event has the support it needs to be a great success!
