Your Ultimate Music Festival In Cowichan Valley
The original vision of Wideglide Entertainment was to bring headline acts to the Cowichan Valley and provide opportunities for local artists to share the spotlight. Starting out with a one day rock concert at Providence Farm 16 years ago, Wideglide Entertainment now embraces all genres of music as the roots that have helped grow the one day concert into the ultimate music festival experience. Our gracious hosts at the Cowichan Exhibition provided the ideal concert bowl where local and international artists graced the stage surrounded by the stunning backdrop of scenic Mount Prevost, however in 2016 the festival moved to a permanent home. The new property at Laketown Ranch, located in Lake Cowichan boasts a 172 acre event site and the ability for our team to build the ultimate festival experience for years to come.

Wideglide Entertainment welcomes world class entertainment each and every year, and continues to find ways to showcase local artists, donate partial proceeds to local organizations, and maximize the economic benefit and exposure for the Cowichan Valley and Vancouver Island.

On the May long weekend Laketown Rock will attract thousands of music fans from all over the island and the province. Laketown Rock is more than just a concert, it’s a vacation destination. Thousands of people will be attending the first annual Laketown Rock during the kick off weekend summer!

We look forward to having you join us at Laketown Rock this year!
