The Empire Theatre is celebrating two large milestones, more than one million tickets sold, and the theatre’s 15th anniversary.
On Monday night at Belleville’s Empire Theatre, the lineup for Rockfest 2018 was unveiled and it was also announced that two festivals will be coming this summer.
Theatre spokesperson Andy Forgie tells Quinte News the July Rockfest line-up, night by night.
On Friday night.
Saturday is a return of a Rockfest favourite.
Forgie says they are also going to open auditions for local bands to open up each night.
Theatre owner Mark Rashotte says to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the theatre, he is bringing in a September music festival.
He believes it will have a classic rock edge to it. It will have a chaired section as well.
Meanwhile, for the July festival, Rashotte says it will be an all ages, fully licensed event, with NO CHAIRS. He says the type of acts and atmosphere call for a open site.
One dollar from every Empire Rockfest ticket purchased will be donated to the ” Field of Ability” project, which is a baseball diamond at Parkdale Public School, that would be fully-accessible.
