Tickets for Rock The Lake went on sale Friday as the organizers announced new bands for the three-day summer concert outside Prospera Place.

The GSL Group announced Friday The Motels and Five man Electric Band joined the lineup of previously revealed acts: A Flock of Seagulls, The Tea Party, co-founder of the Beach Boys Brian Wilson with Al Jardine, Moist, Trooper, Eve 6, Chilliwack, Bif Naked, Carole Pope & Rough Trade, The Spoons, Grapes of Wrath, and The Kings. The event takes place Aug. 5-7, 2022.

“This is an exciting time for us and for everyone in and around the Okanagan as we welcome back the Rock The Lake Musical Festival. We feel like this is the best lineup to date," said GSL Group senior director of marketing George Fadel.

"We are providing something for everyone with the incredible acts we have booked. We’re thrilled to welcome these legendary bands to Kelowna and believe it will be an amazing weekend of music, fun, and entertainment.”

As with previous years, the interior of Prospera Place will be open for patrons to cool off with full facilities, concession stands and a licenced restaurant. The festival grounds will offer food trucks, drinks and VIP access. Patrons are permitted to bring in their own lawn chairs for this all-ages event.

Early bird ticket prices start at $195 for a three-day pass and range up to $499 for a three-day VIP pass. Tickets went on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.

In addition, Rock The Lake will be partnering with One Tree Planted this year to help replenish the forests in British Columbia. Organizers are committing to plant one tree in British Columbia for every ticket sold to help restore the forests that have been damaged by recent forest fires and natural disasters.

"GSL Group gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Province of British Columbia in making this festival happen and is committed to working with the local government and Interior Health to ensure that festival attendees are provided a healthy and safe environment," said GSL Group president & CEO, Graham S. Lee.
