Kelowna’s Ancient Engines will take the stage for the main event

The Great Okanagan Beer Festival will be pairing beer to great music for the main event; Ancient Engines, Red Chair, and Small Town Artillery will be taking Waterfront Park stage on Saturday, May 11.

“This is such an awesome lineup,” said 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 on Saturday. The band 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.
