One of southern Alberta’s biggest outdoor music events of the summer is just days away as the University of Lethbridge celebrates its 50th anniversary with the Shine On Summer Music Festival.

Saturday’s event, from 12:30 to 11 p.m. at the U of L Community Stadium, features award-winning artists Dallas Smith, Corb Lund, Mother Mother, Virginia to Vegas, The Washboard Union, Trevor Panczak, Double Jack and DJ Millz Skillz.

In partnership with the ENMAX Centre, the City of Lethbridge and presenting sponsors Lethbridge Lodging Association and TD Meloche Monnex, the outdoor concert is a first for the university.

“You only turn 50 once and we wanted to do something special for our community,” says U of L president and vice-chancellor Dr. Mike Mahon. “This is a great opportunity to see and use the community stadium as we never have before and I’m really excited to experience the atmosphere of an outdoor music festival on our campus.”

Smith is a platinum selling country music star, with many Juno and Canadian Country Music Association nominations and awards to his credit.

Lund, a native of southern Alberta, has been singing about everything from loss and love to military songs for years. His album, “Cabin Fever,” hit No. 1 in Canada in its first week and made the Polaris Music Prize longlist that helped him gain a foothold in the United States.
