The 2014 Rockin’ River Music Festival is turning out to be the best ever. You don’t want to miss it.

Last year roughly 26,000 people attended Rockin’ River Musicfest over three days, with folks coming from all over the Lower Mainland and B.C.

This year's event – running Aug. 7-9 at Mission Raceway Park – will feature acts such as Rascal Flatts, Terri Clark, Gord Bamford, The Road Hammers, Hey Romeo, Julian Austin, plus party bands such as Aerosmith Rocks (Aerosmith tribute act), Legzz (ZZ Top tribute act), High Voltage (AC/DC tribute act) and Mission own party band, Prior Street Lush.

There will be more than 20 bands performing on three stages throughout the festival. There will be a pancake breakfast with live music supplied by Merv Tremblay.

This year festival has a new seating map (rockinriverfest.com) with lots of new ticket levels for you to choose from. Get right in front of the stage with our VIP and reserved seating tickets – guaranteeing yourself a seat up front in the reserved seating area.
