The Rolling Stones and Aerosmith won’t be rocking Sun Peaks village, but their music will be centre stage.
This weekend, Aug. 12-15, the resort plays host to the 7th annual Retro Concert Weekend. The musical 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 Stones, Aerosmith, Johnny Cash, Bob Seger, John Fogerty, Heart and Pat Benatar.
"This event has become a fan-favourite of residents and guests alike,” said Connie Williamson, events manager. “As one of our premier, free concert weekends, it has steadily been growing in popularity over the past six 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.
