Fernie Alpine Resort is holding its annual spring ski/music festival again this year, and has announced that its headline act will be 'Chilliwack'.

Fernival returns for its fifth year on April 13 and continues on with the tradition of featuring some of the best classic Canadian rock bands.

“Chilliwack are a Canadian rock band that had their heyday during the 1970s and 1980s. They are perhaps best remembered for their five biggest songs "My Girl (Gone Gone Gone)", "I Believe", "Whatcha Gonna Do", "Fly At Night" and "Lonesome Mary". The band's lineup has changed numerous times, though Bill Henderson has constantly remained a fixture, and Chilliwack continues to tour across Canada.”
