There’s some preliminary shenanigans tonight, then the main shenanigans kick off tomorrow.
For those who’ve been before, you all know what to expect. For those who haven’t been, take one part Animal House (especially the food fight and toga party scenes), one part Spring Breakers (the bikini and sun stuff, not the guns and psycho stuff), and one part Country Strong (except for the scene at the end where Kelly [ Gwenyth Paltrow] commits suicide by ODing on pills), mix well, throw in a dollop of a redneck reality TV show like Duck Dynasty, and you have Craven in a nutshell.
Here’s a breakdown of the line-up for each night:
Friday the headliner is Luke Bryan with Thomas Rhett, George Canyon and Sarah Darling also on the bill. Saturday’s headliner is Dierks Bentley with Joe Nichols, the Charlie Daniels Band, Williams & Ree and Tim Hicks also appearing. Sunday’s line-up features headliner Dallas Smith with Keith Urban, Brett Eldredge, Gord Bamford and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
You can find more info on the jamboree here. And to get everyone whose going pumped here’s the video for Sarah Darling’s latest single “Little Umbrellas”:
A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.
We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
