Rock the Lake music festival in Okanagan nears Saturday night sellout

Aug. 10th show is nearly sold out and three-day weekend passes are almost gone as well

The Rock the Lake music festival in Kelowna has a devoted fan base that has already made one of the three days a sell-out while weekend pass sales overall are in short supply.

The annual festival in the Prospera Place parking lot that celebrates the largely Canadian music hitmakers of the ’70s and ’80s takes place Aug. 9 to 11.
