Rock the Shores Music Festival cancelled


WATCH: Popular Rock the Shores Music Festival cancelled this year

Greater Victoria’s Rock the Shores Music Festival, set for this July, has been cancelled.

It would have been the sixth year for the popular music festival on the West Shore, which draws big crowds to Colwood every summer.

Event organizers Atomique Productions say they had to make the “difficult decision” to cancel this year’s event due to the “limited available of headline talent and increasing market saturation”, as well as competition from Canada 150 events.

Ticket holders are being offered full refunds.

Organizers say they’re committed to bringing Rock the Shores back in 2018.
