Grand Forks NewsNewsRegional News Cannafest Announces Headliners SHARE ON: Alex Alan, staff Friday, Feb. 1st, 2019 An early start to the day at Cannafest 2018, August 10th (Alex Alan, MyGrandForksNow.com staff) The time has finally come, we know who’s headlining this year’s Cannafest Music Festival in Grand Forks. Owner and Organizer Chuck Varabioff explains: “Thursday August 8th is Vince Neil from Motley Crue and he is doing all the Motley Crue hits, Friday August 9th is Cheap Trick and of course they’ll be doing all of their hits. Saturday August 10th is Bret Michaels and he will have special guests with him who I don’t know who they are yet but it might even be a total surprise.” He says he’s spent quite some time trying to lock down performers: “Cheap Trick and Vince I’ve been after for a couple years and finally this year it all worked out the way I wanted it to.” Varabioff says he’s happy to have Bret Michaels return. “He wanted to be a bigger part of the festival this year and he asked me if he could come back and he did an absolutely amazing show, unfortunately he was cut a little early last year because Whitesnake had a time frame they had to follow.” He hopes to have the rest of the performers announced within a couple of weeks.
