When they first met in 2009 and started writing songs together in the back of a truck, Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard never imagined that their musical partnership would land them a #1 single alongside country greats like Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney. Florida Georgia Line will be bringing their unique country sound to the Swift Current stage as part of the Frontier Days 75th Anniversary entertainment lineup.

In addition to checking out some great grandstand performers at this year's 75th Anniversary Frontier Days, local musicians will be showcasing their talents on the Hanson Park stage from 2:30-5:00pm on both Saturday and Sunday. For the third year in a row, the Southwest Chapter of the Saskatchewan Country Music Association will be presenting a number of local performers working with an all-local house band to bring great music to the fairgrounds.

Students involved with the jazz music program at Swift Current Comprehensive High School recently showcased their talents to the rest of the community with a concert held at the Lyric Theatre on June 12. The evening featured performances by 8 o'clock Jazz, 9 o'clock Jazz, and Vocal Jazz, as well as another vocal combo and two instrumental combos who provided some background music before the show.

This year's Regina Folk Festival promises an excellent lineup of incredible performers from across the country – including Swift Current's very own bluegrass band, The Midnight Roses.

This year, Swift Current Ag & Ex celebrates the 75th anniversary of Frontier Days. This exciting annual event will be extra special this year, with upgraded entertainment over the course of three nights, instead of their usual two.

Kicking off on June 20 in Swift Current, Long Day’s Night music festival promises four nights of fantastic music under a big-top tent at Marston Street and 11th Avenue SW. The festival, now in its 11th year, provides a great way to enjoy the longest nights of the year with an impressive lineup of entertainment.
