2011 Concerts Return To Val-Du-Lakes This Weekend
Before there was Rothbury, There was Val-Du.
In the late 80s and early 90s, the West Michigan concerts and camping experience was defined by Val-Du-Lakes, where rockers could load up the tent and the cooler and enjoy a night out under the stars with rockers of the era like Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, or Skid Row.
With the demise of Rothbury's multi-day festival-style event, Val-Du-Lakes is looking to make a return, with a variety of concerts from 80s & 90s artists, mixed in with show of current hit makers like Sick Puppies this Friday night or Pop Evil on Saturday.
