The verdict on Laketown Shakedown 2019: Wow!

Snoop Dogg, Incubus, Sublime with Rome, Smash Mouth and the rest offered up super entertainment for a crowd that reached about 8,000 on Sunday night, June 30.

The whole event got off to a damp start with a thundershower just at showtime on Friday, June 28 but that didn’t keep anyone away, and by the time Jesse Roper took the stage, everyone was dry and ready for a great time.

Saturday just kept the fun rolling, with more and more trailers and tenters rolling in for the big name acts on the main stage.

From start to finish, there were great tunes, great friends, and a great time for everyone.

The big act, Snoop Dogg, put on a really entertaining show to end Wideglide Entertainment’s kickoff to summer.
