You know it's late summer when the Fair at the PNE begins, and with it, the Summer Night Concert series.
The music starts Aug. 19 with a packed roster of Grammy winners, rap icons and fair regulars providing the soundtrack for the balmy evenings at summer's end.
“We are thrilled with this year’s lineup,” says PNE Fair creative director Patrick Roberge in a press release. “We really wanted every night to be filled with summer fun. There are musical offerings for fans of every genre."
Prepare for some major nostalgia with TLC and Boyz II Men performing on opening weekend, and Billy Idol, Aqua, and Boney M featuring Maizie Williams later on.
Canada is well represented with Billy Talent, Tenille Townes, Walk off the Earth and Blue Rodeo joining the lineup to celebrate their 30th anniversary. Meanwhile, Vancouver's very own Doug and the Slugs perform with the VSO following the success of their documentary.
All concertgoers will need a fair gate pass as well as a paid concert ticket to attend. There will be a combination of reserved seats and standing room floor tickets.
Ticket prices start at $20 and go on sale Friday, May 26.
