The Bros. Landreth, seen performing at the Winnipeg Folk Festival in July, are headlining Brandon’s second Summer Lights Music Festival at the Keystone Centre grounds on Aug. 24.
Shotgun Jimmie, singer-songwriter Kris Ulrich and The Bros. Landreth will take the stage on Aug. 24 for the second annual Summer Lights Music Festival.
The event will be held under the trees on the Keystone Centre grounds. Performances run from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.
"For last year’s inaugural festival, we basically stitched together an evening of free music in Princess Park as our way to say ‘goodbye’ to the seasonal Music in the Parks concert series and to say ‘hello’ to the school year," said festival organizer Dylan MacDonald.
"This year, with a larger venue and a headliner like The Bros. Landreth, we’ve gone bigger and better, yet we’ve still remained true to our goal of showcasing young and emerging Manitoba talent. We hope the community will agree, and will come out to hear an evening of amazing live music."
The free event is organized by the City of Brandon’s community services department.
People are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket. Food and beverage vendors will be available on-site, and free parking is available in the Keystone Centre parking lot.
In the event of inclement weather, the festival will be staged at The 40 nightclub under an all-ages licence. Watch brandon.ca for more details.
