Last weekend marked the 17th year that Sunfest Country Music Festival rocked Cowichan Valley with some incredible tunes, and by all accounts, 2018 was the best year for them yet…

…but not for long.

During the weekend, festival organizers announced that American country music star Jason Aldean would be headlining the 2019 Sunfest Country Music Festival.

Here’s how the crowd reacted:
