Beach party set for Colwood

Band of Rascals headlines free concert at Esquimalt Lagoon

Before there is Rock the Shores, there is Tour de Shores.

Band of Rascals headlines a free preview concert series performing four concerts on June 25 starting with Courtenay at 11 a.m. and culminating with the biggest show of the day in Colwood’s Esquimalt Lagoon at 5:15 p.m.

The free concert series, a precursor to Rock the Shores (one of the biggest annual events on Vancouver Island), returns for its second iteration with additional stops in Nanaimo and Duncan before coming to Ocean Boulevard for their final stop. Stinging Belle opens the beach party concert at 5:15 p.m. with food and drink on hand from Phillips Brewing and Malting Co., Merridale Ciderworks, and L’Authentique Poutine and Burger.

Tickets for Rock the Shores will be available for purchase at each stop with no service fees and a portion of ticket sales going to the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock and the TLC Fund for Kids.
