Wascana Park in front of the legislative building will be packed with people, skateboards, and local music on Saturday for Summer Invasion.
The annual festival is focusing on Saskatchewan music this year, with only local bands taking the stages.
“I think it’s just cool in general that Summer Invasion’s focusing just on Saskatchewan bands and keeping it local, because, I mean, the music scene here is stronger than ever right now,” said Brock Prentice, lead singer for Desert Island Classic, one of the bands taking the main stage Saturday night.
The group was on a minor stage at the festival last year, but they’ve been making big waves since their debut album dropped in December. The first two singles from the album “Time Machine” and “Too Late” have made it into steady rotation on local radio stations, and Prentice said the band has been playing a lot.
Prentice said the band is excited to be performing at the festival again, especially since they’ll be sharing the stage with well-known Saskatchewan bands Rah Rah and Library Voices.
“We’re going to party and have fun with everyone else that’s out there.”
He said to expect a good vibe and a lot of energy.
