Riverfest 2007 on Aug 10 - 12 near Bridgewater NS – news update

By Administrator

Prepare to Rock the Bush! Riverfest 2007 on August 10 to 12 near Bridgewater, N

For the fourth consecutive year, Star Gazer Entertainment presents Riverfest - featuring over 30 up-and-coming acts from Nova Scotia and the Maritimes.

The brainchild of CKBW announcer Jonathan Crouse – it’s his vision to bring a great music festival to the South Shore of Nova Scotia which doesn't cater to just one type of musical taste. With the overwhelming amount of talent in the Maritimes this vision has become a reality. In 2006 Riverfest was honoured with a nomination for "Music Event of the Year" by "Music Nova Scotia". The winner of this award went to the Juno's -excellent company to keep and be nominated along side of! This nomination reinforces the fact that Riverfest is more than a flash in the pan.

Some of the acts that have graced the Riverfest stage include international acts such as MIR and Charlie A'Court along with local favorites Air Traffic Control and Short Notice. Both of which have performed at each Riverfest since it's inception in 2004. All money raised (after cost) is donated to two local charities based in the South Shore of Nova Scotia. All acts involved donate their time and talent to the event. We are proud of all the performers who have graced our stage since the beginning of this event. The generosity of each musician to share their art with the Riverfest attendees is truly appreciated.

With camping included in your pass and children under 12 not having to pay the admission fee (When accompanied by a legal guardian), you should plan your vacation around Riverfest.

Tickets available at Ticket Atlantic (www.ticketatlantic.com) -Be one of the first to buy a pass for this year’s event -you'll be glad you did!
