Adrenaline, excitement and great music in Lytton

The annual River Festival in Lytton offers lots of great, free entertainment over the Labour Day weekend.

They claim to be the best event band in Canada. This isn’t a modest claim and their music is absolutely sensational.

Ten professional musicians from Vancouver converge on Lytton’s festival on Saturday evening of Labour Day Weekend.

“This is probably the best band that has ever performed in Lytton,” says Judith Urquhart, secretary of the Lytton River Festival Society. “Not only are they professional musicians they are magical, high-energy entertainers.”

Ten Souljers are on stage Saturday evening (Sept. 5) and are reason enough to visit the Lytton festival.

The excitement, sheer entertainment value, musical excellence, and pure energy are all Ten Souljer’s trademarks.

Their vast songlist allows them to adapt their music to the audience. Want a street dance? – and at this festival, that’s a given – their music gets everyone up and dancing.

They hit the stage from 7:30 to 9pm and warm up the crowd.

Then at 9pm Whistler’s fire spinner Phoebe takes the stage for a half hour performance. Always one of the most popular events at the festival, fire-spinning is mesmerizing to watch.

Back on stage at 9:30, Ten Souljers continues the street dance party until 11pm.

Earlier on Saturday, Ashcroft’s own Spiritus Mundi performs at 5pm. With guitar, acoustic bass and flute, they charm the audience with a beautiful blend of easy listening numbers.

From Friday afternoon until Sunday evening, a total of seven great bands entertain the crowds at the festival.

The Lytton River Festival has been described as “the best small town festival in BC”. Three days of wholesome, family entertainment. It doesn’t get much better than this, especially so close to home.

What’s the best part? Everything is absolutely free! Yes, free!

Go to for the complete 3-day lineup of entertainment and events.
