Concert lineup announced for Shine On Summer Festival

The University of Lethbridge’s Shine On Summer Festival is excited to announce the lineup of award-winning musical acts who will take the stage for the Saturday outdoor concert event.

In partnership with the ENMAX Centre, the City of Lethbridge and presenting sponsors Lethbridge Lodging Association and TD Meloche Monnex, the U of L is thrilled to bring Dallas Smith, Corb Lund, Mother Mother, Virginia to Vegas, The Washboard Union, Trevor Panczak and Double Jack together for a full evening of musical entertainment.

“The ENMAX Centre is excited to both be a partner and to celebrate with the University on its 50th anniversary with one of the largest outdoor festivals Lethbridge has seen,” says ENMAX Centre General Manager Kim Gallucci. “The current lineup brings together not only talented musicians from across Canada, but they bring a high energy, party atmosphere that makes the festival celebration exciting and something to be a part of. We look forward to additional artist announcements in the coming weeks.”

The Shine On Summer Festival, Sept. 2nd and 3rd at the U of L Community Stadium, is built around the University’s Alumni Homecoming and is the signature event of the U of L’s 50th anniversary. A two-day festival, it encompasses alumni activities, a community concert and a free community fair highlighting arts, culture, food and drink, song and dance and sporting events for all ages. “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the last weekend of summer and our 50th anniversary,” says University of Lethbridge President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Mike Mahon. “This is an event for all of southern Alberta and to be able to bring in this all-star cast of musicians is something we’re thrilled about. I’m excited just thinking about seeing our stadium full and experiencing the energy of a true summer festival.”

Tickets are available at $75.00. Those with the special U of L code will be able to buy tickets for $65.00. Tickets for children 12-and-under are $49.50.

Following is a look at the full lineup:

Dallas Smith

A platinum selling country music star, Smith has many JUNO and Canadian Country Music Association nominations and awards. From Vancouver, he is the only Canadian male country artist to be at the top of the Country Airplay Chart for weeks at a time for his single “Wastin’ Gas.” Smith won the 2015 JUNO award for Country Album of the Year and was the CCMA Award winner for Album of the Year with LIFTED. Smith was Keith Urban’s invited special guest and direct support on the Canadian run of the “ripCORD World Tour 2016.”

Corb Lund

A native of southern Alberta, Lund has been singing about everything from loss and love to military songs for years. Lund’s album, Cabin Fever, hit No. 1 in Canada in its first week and made the Polaris Music Prize longlist that helped him gain a foothold in the United States. Miranda Lambert invited Lund to open several stadium shows for her and Dierks Bentley. Lund and his band, The Hurtin’ Albertans, have won a JUNO award and the Canadian Country Music Association named Lund Roots Artist of the Year for seven consecutive years from 2004 to 2010.

Mother Mother

With the world roiled by fear and division borne out of politics, economic uncertainty, and terrorism, perhaps there is no better time for the arrival of music underpinned by the belief that love wins. Into the maw of anxiety comes Vancouver’s indie synth-rock band Mother Mother and their new album No Culture, which posits that society uses negative byproducts of culture — such as narcissism, hedonism, and addiction — as a means to nurture its fears of the unknown. “If we can strip back the culture, or the masks, attitudes, and stories that feed our differences, and just connect as people we might be more united at a time where we really need to be,” says Mother Mother’s frontman, guitarist, and lyricist Ryan Guldemond. 

Virginia to Vegas

Derik Baker, the 24 year old wunderkind hailing from small-town Ontario. Raised on his parents record collection and cutting his teeth at a young age writing songs for a variety of pop artists, Derik was discovered by Canadian indie label Wax Records in 2013.Upon releasing his debut single “We Are Stars ft Alyssa Reid” in January of 2014, Derik’s music instantly connected with fans across Canada, topping radio charts and becoming Gold certified in a mere 12 weeks. This whirlwind year has seen him travel the continent, shooting his music videos in Las Vegas and New York, sharing the arena stage with Alyssa Reid and Hedley, and performing on the 2014 MMVA’s. Following this early success with his debut EP Volume 1, his second single “Don’t Fight The Music” and his brand new track “Our Story”, Virginia To Vegas has arrived and is ready to shoot for the stars.

The Washboard Union

A relatively new band on the country music scene, The Washboard Union were five-time Country Music Award winners in 2016. Based in Vancouver, The Washboard Union won both the Rising Star and Roots Artist of the Year awards at the Canadian Country Music Awards. They have shared the stage with stars like Keith Urban, Reba McEntire, Dwight Yoakam and more.

Trevor Panczak

There’s just something honest, compelling and immediately likeable about Trevor Panczak and his music. With a refreshing authenticity that is increasingly rare to fi the Alberta-based country recording artist writes, interprets and records songs that speak to one’s heart in a way that is simple, soulful and with an appeal to a broad array of music fans.Whether singing original compositions or recording those of other writers, Trevor is able to take ownership of the song; his vocal performance grabbing hold of the listeners attention, evoking memories and emotions born out of a life that has seen its tragedies and triumphs. He has developed the remarkable ability to connect not only with an audience but with a song and translate his own personal connection to engage listeners.

Double Jack

was started in 2003, they have released two albums One Chance, and Deuces Wild and a four song EP. Straight up rock and roll is their sound, great harmonies and an aggressive fun stage presence. Currently recording their third album Full Disclosure they intend on booking larger venues and concentrate on only playing their original music and to produce and deliver a polished and excited stage show

Millz Skillz

A DJ bass enthusiast with a versatile mix history, dishing out a balance between nostalgia and new age fire.
