Two of the B.C. Interior’s top bands will take part in the ‘Okanagan Rocks Night’ on the final evening of the 2023 Penticton Peach Festival.
The Hip Replacements, presented by Brutus Trucks, and High Voltage, presented by Kettle Valley Memorial, will perform in Okanagan Lake Park on Sunday, Aug. 13.
“Ending the festival with these two great Okanagan bands seems like a fitting way to wrap-up Peach Fest,” said President Shawna Guitard. “People love their music and their energy.”
High Voltage, with their incredible tribute to AC/DC, has become the unofficial house band of Peach Festival. They missed the 2022 festival, but have performed nine times on the Peters Bros. Main Stage.
The Hip Replacements, with their tribute to the Tragically Hip, will be making their first-ever appearance at Peach Fest. They have been attracting sellout crowds throughout Western Canada for the past 18 years.
Guitard said, “Loud music and lots of fun, it will be a night you don’t want to miss.”
The 76th annual Penticton Penticton Peach Festival is scheduled Aug. 9-13. Kicking off Peach Fest on Wednesday, Aug. 9 is Kim Mitchell, presented by Peters Bros. Paving, and Captain Tractor, presented by Grizzly Excavating. For Tim Hortons Country Night (Tuesday, Aug. 10) Aaron Pritchett and Matt Lang will take the stage. RE/MAX Tribute Night (Friday, Aug. 11) features Eagle Eyes, Arrival (a tribute to ABBA) and Dreams (a tribute to Fleetwood Mac). Two legendary rock bands will perform on Saturday, Aug. 12 with 54•40, presented by Peters Bros. Paving, and Doug & The Slugs, presented by the Penticton Lakeside Resort.
