Virginia to Vegas
July 20 @ 8:00 pm
Peterborough Musicfest is proud to present Juno Award nominated pop recording artist Virginia to Vegas on Saturday, July 20, at 8 p.m. – one of 16 performances presented this summer as part of the concert series’ 33rd season.
American born but raised in Guelph, Virginia to Vegas, a.k.a. Derik Baker, enjoyed continued success in 2018, earning a Juno Award nomination for Breakthrough Artist of the Year, a nod anchored by his platinum selling hit Selfish. In addition, the past year saw him co-write the single IDWK which amassed more than 45 million streams worldwide.
Signed to Wax Records in July 2013, Virginia to Vegas’ first single We Are Stars peaked at #14 on the Canadian Singles Top 100 chart and earned platinum status. Subsequent singles Our Story and Lights Out preceded his late 2016 debut album Utopian.
Continuing to innovate and elevate his sound, Virginia to Vegas ended 2018 strong with the release of the new single Yesterday which features his trademark indie pop choruses and sticky electronic choruses.
