Kevin Foley brings Forever Young

Rock classics coming to life at Peach Fest

Tributes to AC/DC, Neil Young and Creedence Clearwater Revival are going to light up the night at Penticton Peach Festival.

Music fans will hear some of the greatest rock tunes of all time at the 69th annual Penticton Peach Festival.

Peachfest, in conjunction with Penticton Speedway, will host Rock Tribute Night on  Aug. 6. Three of Western Canada’s top tribute bands will perform on the Peters Bros. Construction main stage.

The concert begins with Forever Young, a tribute to Canadian music legend Neil Young.    Summerland’s Kevin Foley takes on the legend as the lead vocalist of Forever Young.

They will be followed by Willy and the Poorboys performing the greatest hits  of Creedence Clearwater Revival.   Willy and the Poorboys do the ultimate tribute to one of the most influential and popular bands of all time.

Headlining the evening will be High Voltage with their incredible vocal and visual performance of AC/DC songs.

“What a fantastic line-up,” said Peach Festival Entertainment Director Bill Kolter.   “This will be an evening of music that people won’t forget.”

Only a select group of bands have been invited back to Peach Festival for multiple appearances and High Voltage is in that group.   This will be their sixth appearance on the Peters Bros. Construction Main Stage, in Okanagan Lake Park.

“Every year, people ask us to bring them back.    They really love High Voltage,” Kolter said.

There is no admission charge to Penticton Speedway Tribute Night or any of the other entertainment during Peach Festival.
