Special Guests:  THE FLATLINERS career is a testament to perseverance and dedication.  A line-up that has never strayed from the original members, who met as teenagers.  The Flatliners hold fast to the DIY punk rock ethos that has been at the groups core from the beginning.  Their latest album, is titled Inviting Light.

East coast bred, Toronto based rockers THE TREWS are without a doubt a true Empire favourite!  Thrilling their audiences, both in The Empire Theatre and outside at Empire Square.  Their songs “Tired Of Waiting”, “Sing Your Heart Out”, “Not Ready To Go” and “Highway Of Heroes” are Canadian rock anthems.  Touring coast to coast, performing at multiple prestigious festivals along the way, THE TREWS, are always up for a great rockin’ party!

Special Guest:  JAKE CLEMONS, makes his Empire Rockfest debut!  Clemons divides his time touring the world with his own music and performing as saxophonist with Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band.  Hailing from Virginia, the singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and his band will be performing songs from his newest release Fear & Love.

Hailing from Saskatoon and prairie proud, THE SHEEPDOGS make their Empire Rockfest debut on the heels of their sold out concert at The Empire Theatre in early 2016.  Hot guitar licks and infectious sing-a-long chorus’ are the trademark of their songs “I Don’t Know”, “Feeling Good”, “I’m Going To Be Myself” and “Downtown”.

The next generation of great Canadian rock to emerge from the limestone city, THE GLORIOUS SONS, make their triumphant return to Empire Rockfest, after performing one of the most electrifying sets in the festival’s history, last year.  “Hard Times”, “The Contender”, “Love Under Fire” and their newest single “Kill The Lights” are just some of the highlights anticipated by their loyal followers.
