Quick reminder that one of the U.S.A.’s biggest rock events, Rock on the Range, is making its debut in Canada today… and where better to have it than the Canad Inn’s stadium right here in Winnipeg!

The show is on rain or shine, be sure to read our Rock on the Range Rain Guide before you go.

Full concert information can be found here.

Congratulations to our contest winners Scott S. and Tanya K. We also hosted a Twitter contest that was won by Carly P.

We asked readers to tell us their favourite Canadian artists to win… here were the winners:

Si-g0s (Scott S): If you all have heard of the show called disBand televised on much music, then you know what i’m talking about.. The Stereos is one of my favourite bands!! they are my favourite because it shows that close friendships and dedication to what you love doing will really get you to where you want to be!! they rock!! they’re one of my favourite bands.. i have a list of them in the back of my head, but i can’t name them all.. LOL!! but the members of Stereos are really talented musicians and lyricists.. they have a style of music that no one has ever heard.. they’re more like 50’s doo wop, R&B, and punk.. it’s a style that no one has ever tried to play.. they’re unique.. and that is why they are one of my favourite Canadian bands..

tanyamjay (Tanya K): You can’t pick just one because Canada ROCKS! My favs are Billy Talent, Rise Against, Theory of a Deadman, Nickleback & The Tragically Hip!! The ‘why’ is pretty obvious…because they ROCK! But mostly because they are all proud to be Canadian!! And so am I! I AM CANADIAN!! ;0)
