Photos by Jim Brown

It was Shawn Mendes day at the Cavendish Beach Music Festival, helping the festival close out one of the most successful summers in its decade long history. But before Mendes there were the Broods, a wildly successful New Zealand brother-sister duo consisting of lead vocalist Georgia Nott (in photos) and multi-instrumentalist Caleb Nott, who also does backing vocals. They captivated a revved up crowd with a sultry, soulful afternoon set that hit all the right notes.

They threw a party and everyone came: Day 3, Cavendish Beach Music Festival

It was one of the largest crowds ever seen at the 10-year-old Cavendish Beach Music Festival (July 8) and many of them were there for American country superstar Luke Bryan. But long before he hit the stage tens of thousands of people assembled for an impressive lineup of talented acts including the James Barker Band, Granger Smith and Jon Pardi. And bright, sunny skies and balmy temperatures did their part in boosting spirits and attendance.

Allison Parsons and her friend Amanda White, both from St Johns, NFLD., had been looking forward to their PEI trip to see Luke Bryan for six months. Their thoughts on the beach festival so far: “It’s awesome, best one yet,” they said.

It was the best kind of birthday gift 16-year-old Ashley Melanson, from Dieppe, NB., could ask for – a ticket to see her favorite performer on stage at one of the best music festivals anywhere. Joining her on her trip to the Cavendish Beach Music Festival to see Luke Bryan was her dad Luc Melanson, who also happens to be a big fan.

The Cavendish Beach Music Festival grounds were splashed with sun on Saturday, July 7, at the start of the day’s entertainment, a stark contrast to one day earlier when lashing thundershowers delayed the festival’s opening acts for several hours.

EmiSunshine and her band led off the day’s entertainment (accompanying photos), followed by The East Pointers, Lindsay Ell, Terry Clark. Dallas Smith and a star-studded list of other entertainers, finishing with headliner Chris Young. EmiSunshine (Emily Sunshine Hamilton) is an East Tennessee classic country, folk and blues phenomenon, who at just 13 has already graced the cover of Country Music People. It was just the first act of the day, but the grounds were already jammed with fans of her music.

Day 1, Cavendish Beach Music Festival: The Deluge

Story and photos by Jim Brown

Long columns of ticket holders assembled more than an hour before showtime at the Cavendish Beach Music Festival on the festival’s first day, July 6, only to be disappointed when the skies opened up and heavy rains threatened to wash everything away, accompanied by thunder and lightning. But many were in good spirits as they attempted to wait out the deluge. Dark clouds and rain were banished shortly after 2:30 pm, with the sun reappearing, along with warmer temperatures. Organizers were optimistic the day’s program, delayed since 12 noon, would be underway by around 3 pm.
