Live Nation Canada has partnered with Rockin’ River Musicfest to bring the four-day country event to Merritt, British Columbia. The annual festival takes place at the picturesque location with more than 30 artists on multiple stages.

With the Coldwater River running through the center of the site, the festival is easily accessible from across British Columbia and Alberta, and provides an excellent country camping and festival experience.


This year’s headliners include Eric Church, Brett Eldredge, and Dallas Smith. The lineup will also include Luke Combs, Midland, Dustin Lynch, and Joe Nichols.

“After 8 successful years, we have been looking at how we can take Rockin’ River Music Fest to the next level. This partnership with Live Nation will give us the ability to access the company’s scale and talent pool, bringing more acts and an even better experience to country fans across the area,” said Kenny Hess, Founder of Rockin’ River Musicfest in a release. “Fans are in for the biggest and most incredible festival weekend yet!”

Rockin’ River 2018 will feature expanded onsite amenities, additional late-night saloons, a variety of camping options, as well as opportunities for offsite experiences such as guided fishing, horseback riding, ATV tours, and more.

“Kenny and his team are developing Rockin’ River Music Fest to be one of the most celebrated destination events in the country and we’re excited to now be a part of it,” said Paul Haagenson, President, Live Nation Canada in a release. “Music fans of all ages love this beautiful festival site, which has a long and rich history of hosting country legends like Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Tim McGraw, Alan Jackson, Kenny Chesney, and more.”
