An up-and-coming Kelowna artist is the latest to join the packed lineup for Penticton’s Peach Festival in August.
Scotty Berg, a 16-year-old singer-songwriter who racked up millions of views online, will be taking the stage in the lead-up to the Re/Max Tribute Night on Aug. 11.
The multi-instrumentalist was singing by the age of two, busking by nine years old and amassing millions of TikTok and Instagram views by 14.
Berg’s songs have been played around the world on radio and his single “Dreams” landed as high as #30 on Adult Contemporary radio in the United States.
Berg has performed at SXSW in Austin, Texas and on national TV for the 90th Hollywood Christmas Parade while also gracing the cover of POPSTAR! Magazine, but being able to play close to home is something he is looking forward to.
“Performing at PeachFest this year is awesome,” said Berg. “Being on a big stage and performing at a festival that is well-known and been around for a long time is amazing.”
Berg has garnered fan and industry accolades alike, winning numerous singing contests and consistently being recognized as one of the top young artists in the Okanagan.
“Scotty is an amazing talent and we are lucky to have him join us on his road to becoming an international household name. Catching him perform is a great reason to get down to the park early, or play hooky from work, because you will not want to miss him,” said Peach Festival president Shawna Guitard.
After Berg’s performance at 3:15 p.m. on Aug. 11, stick around for the tribute performances to Fleetwood Mac from Dreams, to Abba from Arrival, and to the Eagles by Eagle Eyes.
