Now in its second year one of Canada’s most significant emerging urban music festivals, FVDED in the Park will take place at Holland Park in Surrey, British Columbia, on July 2 & 3, 2016. Proudly presented by Blueprint, in partnership with Live Nation Canada, the festival features over 30 world-renowned artists from across the globe on its three stages. Grammy award-winning headliners include the recently combined forces of Diplo and Skrillex’s super-group, Jack Ü, along with one of modern electronic era’s youngest hit-makers, Zedd. The full line-up and details around this years’ FVDED in the Park are listed below.
“FVDED is truly the most exciting project our team works on every year,” says Alvaro Prol, Blueprint Co-Founder and Talent Buyer for the festival. “The lineup reflects our tastes as a company – it’s contemporary and approachable, with both established artists and emerging acts that we believe in and love. Last year’s reception blew us away and we appreciate the opportunity to once again bring a festival to the heart of a city.”
The festival is easily accessible and unique in its cityscape location. FVDED’s diverse all ages crowd can also enjoy fare from popular food trucks and shop from local vendors all within the scenic urban park backdrop. Rapid transit and ample parking are both short walks on foot and fully licensed outdoor lounges are also available for festival-goers 19+ and over, creating an inclusive environment for all. VIP festival passes will also be available for purchase which allows priority entry into the festival, and includes access an exclusive viewing area and separate VIP areas/beer gardens.
“It’s very exciting to unleash the second edition of what was such a unique and special event last year. FVDED IN THE PARK demonstrates that the lines between music genres continue to be blurry and today’s festival fan is open to discovering new artists from all corners our industry. Can’t wait to see everyone in Surrey this July,” says Erik Hoffman, Live Nation Canada Senior Vice-President of Talent.
More than 28,000 music fans attended last year’s festival, making it the largest outdoor music event in the Greater Vancouver Metropolitan Area. The scope of the event resulted in a positive impact on the local economy and helped strengthen the case for bringing large festival-type events to other municipalities in the Lower Mainland.
General Admission Two-Day Festival Passes and 19+ VIP Area Passes will be available for purchase on Monday, March 21 at 11am PST via www.fvdedinthepark.com. General Admission passes will be valid to admit all ages. Details on Single Day Passes will be released in the coming weeks.
