The Nelson Star knows Rock and Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution, so For Those About To Rock… we have a great contest for you.

The classic rock references are part of the mix for good reason, the Star is one of the sponsors of Kootenay Lakeview Lodge’s Hot August Nights weekend happening later this month and we want to invite you to the party that features AC/DC tribute band BC/DC. We are giving away tickets to the show for you and nine friends. All you have to do is click here to enter.

“The outdoor concerts at Kootenay Lakeview Lodge have become a staple of the Kootenay summer,” says Star publisher Karen Bennett. “We are very pleased to be part of the weekend series and happy to be giving away tickets to the Sunday night show.”

BC/DC is based in Nelson and has become one of the most well-known tribute bands playing shows across North America.

Hot August Nights runs on the August 16 to 18 weekend at the Balfour lodge that overlooks Kootenay Lake. On Friday night the headliner is Canadian “A” which recaptures the magic of great Canadian bands from Bryan Adams to Shania to BTO and the Guess Who. On Saturday night it’s Nearly Neil and the Solitary Band which is a tribute show to Neil Diamond. The Sunday night show will Shoot to Thrill with the High Voltage show by BC/DC.

The contest winner will get a total of ten tickets to the show and get to hang out in the Nelson Star tent that will feature pizza and appys. The winner and their friends must be 19 years and older.

For more information on the concert weekend or to reserve tickets for any of the shows, call 1-877-229-4141.
