2016 MTS Super-Spike Taking Place in July
27 Jun, 2016
MTS Super-Spike presented by Bud Light, is excited to welcome acclaimed Canadian rockers ‘The Sheepdogs’ as this year’s event headliner. MTS Super-Spike, which is taking place July 15th & 16th at Maple Grove Rugby Park, combines Western Canada’s largest outdoor/beach volleyball tournament with a weekend long concert series, all set in a festival atmosphere. The event, now in its fifteenth year, also acts as a local fundraiser with over $940,000 raised to date in support of the Winnipeg based National Women’s Volleyball Team.*
The Sheep Dogs who became the first unsigned band to make the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine in 2011, have since grown to huge popularity in Canada and the United States. They have had six top ten hits on Canadian rock charts over the past five years, and will be making their first ever appearance at MTS Super-Spike this July. Along with The Sheepdogs, MTS Super-Spike will feature a dozen amazing live acts at the festival including Poor Young Things, The Proud Sons, The JD Edwards Band, and Kenaston

* Beginning in the summer of 2017 after the National Women’s Volleyball Team relocates to Richmond B.C.

Details will be released closer to the event this summer on this exciting evolution that is expected to leave an even bigger footprint in Winnipeg benefiting local charities in need.
