The annual Sound of Summer Music Festival returns to the meadows of Penticton to shower audiences with the aural equivalents of heat, swimwear, and sunflowers. A weekend lineup stacked with some of pop and hip-hop’s brightest stars features headliner Lupe Fiasco, who is still climbing the mountain of acclaim heaped on his hit album Lasers and is poised for a heated rap battle with the sun to determine who has the brighter future. Electro-producer Avicii rubs digital butter all over the crowd with his contagious remixes of Tiësto, Robyn, and David Guetta, and My Darkest Days unleashes rollicking guitar licks. Flo Rida and Hyper Crush monitor the festival’s frenetic pulse rate, pumping up the crowds with their defibrillating beats.
Passes are general admission and all ages, so guests of all heights and musical proclivities are welcome within the festival park’s grassy confines. Though no outside food or beverages are allowed, concession stands will keep mouths moist between shouted song lyrics.
