The energy at an outdoor music concert can become palpable in the air, much like the electricity after two Energizer bunnies almost kiss. Anticipate a festive weekend with today's Groupon to Cavendish Beach Music Festival in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, on Thursday, July 7, through Sunday, July 10. The festival is from 4 p.m. until 11 p.m. on Thursday and from noon until 11 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Today's deal includes a Confederation Bridge pass for motorists as they leave the island (a $43.25 value). Choose from the following ticket options:

Nominated by the Canadian Country Music Association for Country Festival of the Year in 2010, Cavendish Beach Music Festival's more than 30 crooners and strummers serenade 60,000 guests during four days of thumping country. CMT's Casey Clarke wrangles host duties for his third year in a row, presenting a lineup of seasoned songsters such as Toby Keith (Sunday), Tanya Tucker (Saturday), Johnny Reid (Friday), Trace Adkins (Thursday), and Brad Paisley (Saturday). Two-day and four-day general-admission passes grant guests the freedom to moonwalk from stage to stage, exploring the honky-tonk, rockabilly, and country pop acts and enjoying the eats of the fest's various food vendors (not included in today's deal). Upgrade to VIP and enjoy exclusive access to elevated tents, evening hors d'oeuvres, preferred parking and entrance, drink specials, and entry to the VIP pit, which furnishes front-row action and a challenging game of telephone.
Concertgoers can sleep or pretend-sleep at one of the island's picturesque campgrounds (not included in today's deal) or neighbouring hotels (not included in today's deal). Though lawn chairs find happy homes at the festival, distracting beach umbrellas and air guitars should stay at home.
