Check out the lineup for Island’s annual long weekend country music festival

There’s a full four nights of exciting entertainment on the way as Sunfest rises over the horizon for another year.

Starting with Thursday, Aug. 1, with shows that include the Valley’s Lindsay Elzinga plus Shawn Austin, and Cody Johnson, finishing up with Randy Houser, it’ll be a great night on the Main Stage.

But that’s not all you’ll see and hear Thursday.

The music starts at 3 p.m. on The Flats Stage with April Reign, and follows there with Stetson Road, Bryce Allan, and The County Line: all carefully interspersed so they fill the set-up times on the big stage.

It’s a great opportunity to get up, stretch your legs, stroll over to The Flats area, enjoy the show and maybe some dancing on the great dance floor there, pick up some drinks, food, and souvenirs after that and make your way back to your seats for the next Main Stage performer.

By Friday, there’s even more.

Don Wilkie is on The Flats stage from 10:30 a.m., just in time for you to enjoy some breakfast music.

Later on, April Reign and Stetson Road are back at The Flats in the afternoon, followed later there by Elyse Saunders and The County Line.

The Backwood Stage fires up late Friday, too, with DJ Primitive offering tunes from midnight to 2:30 a.m.

But Friday, Aug. 2 is showstopper night on the Main Stage at Sunfest.

Lauren Mayell opens the fun at 5:20, followed by The Washboard Union.

At 8:10, Canadian country legend Terri Clark comes on stage to charm the audience with her warmth and style.

And she’s followed at 10:10 p.m. by country superstar Jason Aldean, who’ll sing all his hits.

Are you ready to hear ‘Big Green Tractor’, ‘Dirt Road Anthem’, ‘Why’, ‘She’s Country’, ‘Laughed Until We Cried’, ‘Amarillo Sky’, ‘Burnin’ It Down’, ‘When She Says Baby’, ‘Hicktown’, ‘My Kinda Party’, ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay?’ and ‘Drowns the Whiskey’, ‘You Make It Easy’? There have been so many, many great tunes, it’s hard to choose.

He’ll be onstage until 11:40 p.m. so there’s time for quite a few. Get ready to join in with your favourites.

On Saturday, the main stage features Hillside Outlaws, Andrew and Mitchell Tenpenny leading up to headliner Maren Morris, while Nicole Sumerlyn, Aaron Goodvin, Michael Ray and Kip Moore close out the main stage roster, and the weekend, on Sunday.
