Every summer, Vancouver loses its collective gourd over millions of dollars of gunpowder. The Celebration of Light hosts countries competing to see who can wring the most gasps and “oohs” from the hundreds of thousands who descend on the city’s beaches, harbours, condo balconies and apartment building roofs.

To take advantage of this more or less captive audience, a series of free concerts featuring Canadian talent are held on Sunset Beach and English Bay prior to the fireworks, which this year will be launched by the U.K., Canada and Thailand on July 27, July 31 and Aug. 3, respectively. Recently announced is one of the headliners for the SHOREfest concert series: four-time Juno (that’s the Canadian equivalent of a Grammy) Award-winner Serena Ryder.

Ryder is riding high with the release of her latest album Harmony, which features the hit single “Stompa.”

More acts will be announced in the coming days. Watch for updates.
