Great Okanagan Beer Festival announces Stellar Music Lineup for the Main Event

Ancient Engines, Red Chair, and Small Town Artillery to perform

March 4, 2019, KELOWNA, BC: Great Okanagan Beer Festival (GOBF), presented by The Train Station Pub, is excited to announce the music lineup for the 2019 Main Event. Ancient Engines, Red Chair, and Small Town Artillery will be taking Waterfront Park stage on Saturday May 11, 2019.

“This is such an awesome lineup,” says Katrina Frew, Director of Festivals and Events. “From local bands to out of town acts we really have a wide-variety of styles, guaranteed to please all our beer lovers.”

Kelowna-based band, Ancient Engines, will bring their experimental indie alt-rock sound to the stage first on Saturday, Ancient Engines has been a staple in the vibrant Kelowna music scene for three years and they frequently play at numerous local music venues around town. They will light up the grounds with songs, ranging from cool jams to hard-hitting and creative melodies, that will keep the audience enthralled.

A fan favourite from previous years, Red Chair, from Whistler BC, will be returning to deliver a high-energy set that will get the crowd dancing and singing along. Red Chair is a rock staple and has been dominating the Whistler Aprés scene since its creation in 2013. Covering rock hits from the 1950’s to now, they are guaranteed to give you a “musical orgasm in your ear,” as described by their fans.

Small Town Artillery, one of Vancouver’s most exciting groups, will wrap up the festival with a performance you won’t want to miss! This six-piece band creates a tapestry of sound which features guitars, drums, and a horn section that accompany lyrics rich with depth and emotion. In 2018 Small Town Artillery was chosen by CBC Searchlight judges as one of the top 100 Artists in Canada. “Small Town Artillery is packed with passion, musical craftsmanship and drive,” says Tayo Branston, from Five Alarm Funk. “Their tight arrangements and energetic delivery are all the things I love about music!” Catch this group live at GOBF2019, before they blow up on the North American music scene.
