The wait will soon be over - an announcement revealing the lineup for the 2014 Exploits Valley Salmon Festival Concert will take place next week, according to a release issued by the Town of Grand Falls-Windsor on Thursday.

The dates for the popular weeklong festival were also announced in the release; this year's festival will run from Thursday, July 10 to Monday, July 14 with the concert to take place on Saturday, July 12.

Though the rumour mill has been running non-stop with talk of who will headline the big event, fans will have to wait until the Town and promoters SRO Entertainment make the official announcement next week.

In the last number of years the Salmon Festival has seen rock legends like Aerosmith, KISS, and The Eagles headline the concert, along with popular supporting acts like Carly Rae Jepson, Flo Rida, and the Tragically Hip.

This is the 30th anniversary for the event in the town, and in recent years the Salmon Festival has drawn crowds of over 20,000 people flock to the Exploits Valley to take in the outdoor concert, as well as the festival's other activities like the stadium dance, salmon dinner, and family day.
