The outdoor music festival will take place on July 13 to 15 after taking a year hiatus and will once again feature a three-day format with a lineup of international, Canadian and local artists.

Rock the Shores was cancelled in 2017 with organizers citing the limited availability of suitable headline talent as well as market saturation and competition due to Canada 150 celebrations as reasons.

The festival, which has hosted bands such as Jane’s Addiction, City and Colour and Metric on the fields of the Juan de Fuca Recreation site, debuted in 2012 and has grown to be one of West Shore Parks and Recreation’s top money makers.
