Cowichan’s Sunfest thrills country fans

Not just the weather that heated up the weekend

Thousands of country music fans descended on Laketown Ranch in Youbou over the long weekend for four days of non-stop entertainment.

Despite sticky hot temperatures, fans flocked to the area in front of the big stage to see such country superstars as Darius Rucker, Dallas Smith, Orville Peck, Aaron Pritchett, Kip Moore, MacKenzie Porter, Hardy, Randy Houser, and local musical legend and last minute addition Randy Bachman.

It was a triumphant return for the huge music festival, which had to be cancelled for two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
