Go for Soda at Rock the Boat MusicFest! Designated Drivers can win free tickets!

By choosing to “Go for Soda” at this year’s Rock the Boat MusicFest you could win free tickets compliments of the PEI Liquor Control Commission.

“Encouraging social responsibility is an important part of the Commission’s mandate,” said Heath MacDonald, Minister responsible for the PEI Liquor Control Commission. “We are pleased to support Rock the Boat to celebrate their fifth year, while keeping impaired drivers off our Island roads.”

This year’s event in Tyne Valley will feature up-and-coming Canadian rockers The Glorious Sons and rock legend Kim Mitchell. The event is selling out fast and this partnership with the PEILCC will help make it safest and most successful MusicFest yet.

“This is our fifth year hosting Rock the Boat. We are proud that the event is such a fantastic celebration, our focus is on safety and making it a good time for all,”  said Jeff Noye, Chair of Rock the Boat MusicFest. “Our ongoing partnership with PEILCC has played a major role in this success.”

Go for Soda is Canadian Rock Legend Kim Mitchell’s highest charted song on the US Billboard Hot 100.
