Great news Islanders!

One of Vancouver Island’s most iconic music festival staples has announced their return slated for July 2018, after taking a year-long hiatus from the festival scene.

The West Shore is already getting ready to rock, as early bird tickets for the concerts on July 13-15th 2018 have just been announced by Atomique Productions.

In the past, the festival has featured performances by artists like The Tragically Hip, Arkells, Current Swell, and Towers and Trees.

Lower ticket prices and bundles available only during December

Atomique Productions also operates two other music festivals (Rifflandia and the Phillips Backyard Weekender), both of which will be returning in 2018 as well.

So until December 31st, early bird music enthusiasts can get tickets for one, two, or all three festivals in a bundle for discounted prices here.

Though the line-up is yet to be announced, we can’t wait to see what international, Canadian and local artists the festival will bring to us next year.

“Rock The Shores has proven itself as a unique and important event for us, our community and the Island,” says Nick Blasko, Director of Atomique Productions.

“Speaking for everyone in our small company, we couldn’t be more excited to bring this festival back in 2018!”

So we’ll catch you at Rock the Shores 2018 at the Westshore Parks and Recreation Lower Fields this July!
