The city's winter music festival will make the jump to summer just this once, in recognition of Canada's 150th anniversary of confederation. The Heatwave Festival starts July 1 and spreads out for eight days of outdoor entertainment.

The music happens in Canada Games Plaza between the Two Rivers Gallery and the Civic Centre. There are evening concerts and lunchtime shows to take in. It is a mix of acclaimed local musicians, some of B.C.'s best acts, and national celebrities with global renown.

The key headliner is Bruce Cockburn (Lovers In A Dangerous Time, Mighty Trucks of Midnight, Wondering Where The Lions Are, One Day I Walk, Pacing The Cage, etc.).

To help plan that rare set of daily music stars, the official schedule is:

July 1, 7 to 10:30 p.m. - The French Connection, Andino Suns, Delhi 2 Dublin

July 2, noon hour - The Albas, 7 to 10:30 p.m. - Saltwater Hank & Amy Blanding, Don Amero, Stephen Fearing
