Get ready to Rock The Lake on a brand-new weekend.

In an announcement on Thursday, Apr. 11, the annual rock music festival will be taking place from July 12-14 with headliners Tom Cochrane, Theory of a Deadman, Our Lady Peace and 54-40.

Despite taking place on a different weekend, the seventh annual event will still take place at the outdoor plaza at Prospera Place.

The decision to change the weekend of the event is based on how last year’s festival took place just before the start of the Grouse Complex wildfires.

“We understand that many of our most loyal RTL fans have made plans around the previous dates, and we are reaching out to these affected customers directly,” said GSL Group’s VP and GM of sports Mike Strawn. “The choice to move the dates was not an easy one, however, we are fully invested in this community and event, and we feel we needed to make this change to set this festival and community up for success.”

More artists will be announced in the coming weeks.

Pre-release VIP tickets and general admission is now available on the Rock The Lake website.
