The line-up for the 26th annual Exploits Valley Salmon Festival has been announced, with several acts returning to the province approximately three months after visiting for the 2010 Juno?Awards.
Acts set to play the festival include: headliner Three Days Grace, Matthew Good, Faber Drive, Classified, Doc Walker, Sloan and Matt Hornell and the Diamond Minds.
The line-up was announced today by chairperson for this year's festival and town councilor with the Town of Grand Falls-Windsor, Anne Blackmore.
"This year's festival will not disappoint," Blackmore stated in a follow-up news release. "We anticipate that this year's concert will be one of the best ever. The amount of talent at the concert is extraordinary. This is the first year we have had six imported bands, all of which have a unique sound and style making this year the most diverse lineup yet."
The 2010 Salmon Festival will run July 15 to July 19, with the main concert day being Saturday, July 17.
Discounted early bird tickets, at $49.50 each, go on sale Friday, June 4 and will be available at select North Atlantic Retail Outlets and Orangestore locations across the province until Canada Day. They are also available by phone at 1-877-585-9762 or online at: www.salmonfestival.com.
