LAKE WYLIE Lake Wylie boaters can anchor and listen to the music as Lake Wylie Music Fest returns this summer on June 8.
Jan Pendleton, along with husband Jon and friends Paul Noble and Caroline Boatright, launched the fest in 2010, with concerts at “The Cow Cove” in the back of Boyd’s Cove.
Performers set up on a beach stage at a private residence playing to an audience of as many as 150 boats, or 500 people, bobbing on the water. The show is accessible by boat only.
The music line-up includes regional acts, including “American Idol” contestant Josh Sanders of Kannapolis, N.C. This year’s initial set begins at 2 p.m. called Lake Locals & Fest Familiars Gettin’ the Party Started with Tony TBone, Demperio Hertz Music, and Chris Shepherd & Friends, followed by the fest’s traditional Sunset Celebration at 3:30 p.m. with The Mighty RhythmBusters, Fountain Penn, Eddie Barnette Band, Josh Sanders & Band, Red Dirt Revelators, Chubby Knuckles, and ending at dark with a special fire finale by Stray Cat.
