Truck Stop Concert Series

With two years on the clock, the Truck Stop Concert Series at Red Truck Beer has become a Vancouver summer highlight, and it’s returning for a third year with three great shows in East Vancouver’s historic Brewery Creek neighbourhood. Once again, Red Truck will load up the all-day excitement of a music festival and drop it in the heart of Downtown Vancouver.

This year’s schedule will launch with a June 17 synth-pop show headlined by Australian legends Cut/Copy, a festival fave who’ll play classics from albums like In Ghost Colours and Free Your Mind along with tracks from their upcoming album.

On July 15, a country/Americana showcase takes over with Drake White and the Big Fire. This Alabama-raised and Nashville-based singer came up the hard way, working in construction while chasing his music dreams. With a top-five debut album and a series of sold-out shows under their belts, they’re sure to light up the concert series in July.

The series will wrap up on August 12 with a soul and funk-themed bill led by the mighty Lee Fields & The Expressions. Nicknamed “Little JB” because of his vocal and physical resemblance to James Brown, Lee Fields has been a soul mainstay for nearly 50 years, bringing deep-down funk and soul to stages across the world. It’s going to be a soul explosion when he hits the Red Truck stage.

Each event will feature two stages for non-stop music, along with food trucks and free-flowing craft beer. “The Truck Stop Concert Series is the highlight of our summer,” said Red Truck Brewing general manager Jim Dodds. “What could be better than throwing parties for thousands of thirsty music fans at our East Vancouver home?”
