Losing headlining acts won’t stop Harbor Island Sunfest

Despite losing its headlining acts, the Harbor Island Sunfest will still be held on Saturday. Lifehouse, an alternative rock band, and American Idol contestant Chris Medina had originally been lined up to play the festival, but canceled due to scheduling conflicts, said Dave Fritz, president of the Grand Haven Eagles and festival organizer. Ticket holders have the option of getting a refund from where they purchased the tickets, or holding onto them for access to a V.I.P. section directly in front of the stage, said Eagles' secretary Dean Nash.

Ten band are scheduled to play at the festival — which will be held on Harbor Island — including Wayland, Deepfield, Boston-based Prospect Hill, Sevin, 8 Foot Grimiss, the Houston group Pale and Sidetrack.

The festival is free to the public and gates open at noon with the musical acts performing from 1-10 p.m., Fritz said. There will be food, soft drinks and alcoholic refreshments. Concert-goers should bring their own lawn chairs, and coolers are not allowed, Fritz said.

For more information, call 842-4330.
