Since 1910 fairgoers from across BC and around the world have made The Fair at the PNE their beloved annual end-of-summer tradition and the largest ticketed event in the province. This year The Fair at the PNE is proud to unveil a multi-million dollar entertainment lineup, including exciting new features, returning fan favourites and one of the best Summer Night Concert lineups to date. To top it all off guests of the 2013 Fair will see a 20% reduction in pricing of general admission and parking at the Fair – running August 17th to September 2nd (except Mondays August 19th and August 26th).
This year’s Summer Night Concerts lineup has something for everyone, featuring legendary classics, electronic pop, country, rock, and indie-folk music. With their smooth harmonies and catchy lyrics, The Beach Boys found early success as “America’s Band.” After numerous hits over the years, including “Good Vibrations,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” and “Surfin’ U.S.A.,” the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Fellow inductees, The Jacksons, shot to fame with Motown favourites, “I Want You Back” and “Who’s Loving You,” and for the first time will be bringing their funky sound to the Fair. Canadian group Sam Roberts Band will have fans singing along to their Juno Award winning hit, “Bridge to Nowhere.” Melissa Etheridge’s powerful vocals will sound through the fairgrounds as the singer-songwriter takes the stage. Electronic pop artist Lights will be sure to attract the younger generation while country singer Dean Brody will have his female fans swooning. Rounding up the lineup and musical genres are Great Big Sea and blues singer-songwriter, Colin James. The Summer Night Concerts will run every evening from August 17th to September 2nd (except Mondays August 19th and August 26th) at 8:30pm on the WestJet Concert Stage.
