A new music festival is set to rock the Cariboo over four days and three nights with great local bands and other talented acts from around British Columbia.

Cariboo’s Rock Stock will feature country, rock ‘n roll, folk, blues, rockabilly, metal, classic rock and hard rock bands from July 31 to Aug. 3.

The venue is set between 100 Mile House and Lac la Hache. Follow Highway 97 to Spring Lake Road, where “Rock Stock” signs will be posted.

The site is at 6026 Dempsey Lake Rd. towards Forest Grove.

Tribute bands will be rocking out the tunes of popular acts, such as Johnny Cash, CCR, Lynyrd Skynyrd, BTO, The Rolling Stones, Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath.

Organizers say Rock Stock is all about community and bringing people together to have an amazing time and a safe weekend.

Security will be on site; no minors and no pets. Camping spots are available.

Tickets are on sale now. Weekend passes are $60. Day/night passes are $35.

Tickets are on sale at Tasco Supplies in Williams Lake and 100 Mile House; the Hungry Bear Diner and Race Track Husky Gas in Lac la Hache; Lordco Parts in 100 Mile House; and at the gate.

The non-profit festival will have something for everyone, says organizer Wade Cook, who’s also a member of the band “Vimmy Ridge,” which is set to perform.

“I’m sure there will be a few beach balls flying around, so watch your drink.”

Door prizes, draws for gifts, vendors, games and background lasers are all part of the weekend fun.
