Entertainment lineup at the PNE

The Fair at the PNE unviels new multi-million dollar free-with-admission entertainment lineup

  • May. 25, 2014 3:00 p.m.

Since 1910, fairgoers from across B.C. and around the world have made The Fair at the PNE their annual end of summer tradition and British Columbia’s most popular ticketed event.

This year, the PNE is thrilled to announce millions of dollars in new programming for the 2014 Fair, including the highly anticipated Game of Thrones® Exhibit and one of the best Summer Night Concert series to date.

“The Fair at the PNE is one of the most beloved annual traditions for families across British Columbia,” says PNE president and CEO Mike McDaniel. “The 2014 Fair at the PNE will not only offer classic rides and attractions that our guests have come to love, but will also feature millions of dollars of new programming that will be available exclusively at the Fair this year only.”

Summer Night Concerts

This year’s Summer Night Concerts feature an exciting array of artists that are sure to please fans of all genres. Pop stars, R&B icons, rock ‘n’ roll legends, and Disney Channel performers will all be showcased at the 2014 Concert series.

With his smooth and soulful melodies, Phillip Phillips quickly became a fan favourite on season 11 of American Idol, going on to win the competition and release his first single, “Gone, Gone, Gone.” He rose to the top of the charts once again with his quadruple-platinum single, “Home,” and will now be kicking off the 2014 PNE’s Summer Night Concert series.

The series will also be filled with numerous Grammy® Award winning artists. R&B crooners Boyz II Men will make their fans fall in love all over again, the wonderful LeAnn Rimes will have country music fans donning their favourite cowboy hats and wondering how they lived without seeing her live, and the iconic Pointer Sisters will have show-goers so excited for their groovy tunes.

Trooper will raise a little hell, Air Supply will make listeners get lost in love, and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts will remind fans why she’s the queen of rock n’ roll.

Gavin DeGraw and the Plain White T’s will make all the girls swoon; and Disney Channel star and platinum selling artist, Zendaya will have all the young listeners singing and dancing along.

There really is something for everyone in this year’s Summer Night Concerts lineup.

The Concerts will run every evening from August 16 to September 1 (except Mondays August 18 and August 25) at 8 p.m. at the PNE Amphitheatre.
