The all-ages festival will also feature Smash Mouth, Sublime with Rome and Black Pistol Fire. The B.C. acts include Bend Sinister, Five Alarm Funk, Stickybuds and Metchosin’s own Jesse Roper.
While this music festival is going ahead, another popular festival, Rock the Shores, was cancelled for 2019. Organizers of the Colwood festival said there were a combination of factors that led to the cancellation, including access to talent and the right collection of artists that could support the event.
Here is the full Laketown Shakedown lineup:
Friday, June 28
The Boom Booms
Saturday, June 29
Black Pistol Fire
Five Alarm Funk
Sunday, June 30
