There will be more than 20 performances on three different stages at the historic North Pacific Cannery on July 21, highlighted by headliners Dazed n Amused and The Racket.

“[There’ll be] different genres all over and different set lengths so you should be able to catch everyone,” Milum said. “It’ll be good.”

Dazed n Amused are an all-female Led Zepplin tribute band based out of Vancouver, B.C.

The Racket are headlining the festival for the second year in a row. The Smithers-based trio has been playing together for more than six years and bring a mix of heavy rock and melodic love ballads to their performances on stage.

Opening ceremonies for the event begin at noon with music starting at 1 p.m and continuing until 10 p.m.. Like last year’s festival, there will be a free yoga session from 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. either in the net loft or outside on the working dock if weather permits. There will also be a children’s station with face painting, colouring and other activities available for families as well as multiple food trucks on location to provide refreshments and a beer gardens hosted by The Wheelhouse Brewing Company.
