Here’s the official word from the CBMF…

Toby KeithFor the third year in a row, the Cavendish Beach Music Festival, presents world-class country music entertainment in the region's most popular festival vacation destination. Performances will include once-in-a-generation baritone, Trace Adkins, Canada's country sensation Johnny Reid, 8 time GRAMMY WINNER Ricky Skaggs, three-time GRAMMY winner and the ONLY artist to hold three or more consecutive awards as Male Vocalist of the Year by the Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music - Brad Paisley. And if that is not enough, Toby Keith will close the festival with a rare "maritime" appearance on Sunday, July 10. More artists will be announced in the coming weeks as more than thirty acts will take the stages in Cavendish Beach, Prince Edward Island from July 7-10, 2011.

Since its inception, the vision for the festival has been to present world-class entertainment and infrastructure to increase tourism activity and showcase Prince Edward Island as a premier vacation destination. Festival President, Jeff Squires, comments on the growth and success of the festival, "After a stellar 2010 event, with more than 60,000 visitors, the festival generated an estimated economic impact in excess of $14 Million into the provincial economy." Squires adds, "The pillar of our success is based on fostering strategic partnerships with government, industry and the corporate community. I am pleased to announce our newest partnership with Atlantic Lottery as presenting sponsor of the newly branded festival, LottoMax presents Cavendish Beach Music Festival."

trace-adkins"LOTTO MAX really is all about living big and having fun; qualities that are certainly mirrored by the Cavendish Beach Music Festival," says Tom Mullally, Managing Director of Atlantic Lottery's Red Shores. "We're thrilled to have LOTTO MAX on board as Presenting Sponsor of this year's Festival and together with the organizers, we're gearing up for the delivery of another epic Island summer."

Johnny ReidIn addition to the country music artists announced today (and the many more to come), the myriad of activities at the LottoMax presents Cavendish Beach Music Festival include the second year in Cavendish for the acclaimed International Motoring Festival showcasing the best of antique, exotic, muscle and collectible vehicles; the return of ECMA at the Beach featuring the talents of our own east coast artists including Country Artist of the Year; and many new activities including the singing chef, Matt Moore, author of “Have Her Over for Dinner”, who will deliver impromptu shows, as well as cooking up some recipes throughout the festival weekend. Hosting the festival throughout the weekend, CMT’s Casey Clarke, will also record segments for the network’s chart topping show Chevy Cross Canada Countdown.

George CanyonTourism Minister Robert Vessey praised the festival’s success, “The Cavendish Beach Music Festival brought thousands of new visitors to our province last year, and due to the hard work of Festival promoters and the popularity of the Festival itself, they were nominated for the Country Festival of the Year Award by the Canadian Country Music Association. Cavendish Beach Music Festival has proven that it is an event that helps our tourism industry grow and thrive, and brings important publicity to the Island, and the Cavendish area.”

Premier of Prince Edward Island, Robert Ghiz, explains how the festival is an ideal example of a successful public-private partnership, “Promoters worked with government to utilize the Build Canada Fund, and built infrastructure which was a great investment in the Cavendish area. The government of Prince Edward Island is pleased to support initiatives like Cavendish Beach Music Festival, which assists in the growth and sustainability of tourism, one of our primary industries.”

cavendish beach music festivalAdjacent to the Festival grounds in the coastal community of Cavendish Beach, Prince Edward Island are acres of beautiful camping areas, facilities, and of some of the world’s most magnificent beaches and surroundings. The timelessness and beauty of the Maritimes, incredible concerts, impressive array of food, beverages, vendors and the stars above (as well as on our stages), will once again create memories destined to last a lifetime. The most affordable way to enjoy all four days of the LottoMax presents Cavendish Beach Music Festival is to purchase the 4-day pass for $235.25 plus taxes and service fees while supplies last.
