SaskTel Summer Invasion

This two-day festival features free Xtreme sports competitions and demonstrations (skateboarding, MotoCross, wakeboarding, etc) during the day in Wascana Centre, and ticketed concerts at night. Last year, a deluge forced the Saturday show to be moved indoors. Hopefully, the rain stays away this year.

Headliners on the music side for Friday night include the Toronto electronic duo Torro Torro and a DJ set from Lil Jon, along with a free show by the Dead South on something called the SGI Stage which is different from the Main Stage.

On Saturday, the Main Stage acts include Lights and Dear Rouge. There was also a battle of the bands thing going on so whoever won that will be on the card as well.

You can get all the line-up and ticket info on the SaskTel Summer Invasion website. To close, here’s the SF-themed video for Lights latest single “Same Sea” off her 2015 albumĀ Little Machines
