Luke Bryan fans arrive early, prepared to stay late

They were there before noon and were prepared to wait long into the darkness for a chance to watch American country superstar Luke Bryan perform on the main stage at the Cavendish Beach Music Festival on July 8, the festival’s third day.

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.
