Blueprint and Live Nation Canada revamp the FVDED imprint to bring multi-genre, two-day outdoor festival to Holland Park.
Blueprint and Live Nation Canada have announced the inaugural FVDED in the Park, set to take place on July 3 and 4 in Holland Park, Surrey. The all-ages event will feature world-class artists from a variety of genres, performing across two outdoor stages.
Headliners include mastermind producer and progressive-house artist, Deadmau5, and Juno Award winning Artist of the Year, R&B sensation, The Weeknd.
With programming scheduled to showcase a variety of musical genres, including house, R&B, hip hop and more, up to 22,000 people are expected to attend the ticketed festival daily. Holland Park was selected as the ideal location for this large-scale event, based on its scenic backdrop, over ten acres of park-space, and proximity to rapid transit.
“We’re really excited to start a city festival with an urban summer vibe, not just for the Lower Mainland, but for B.C. as a whole,” said Alvaro Prol, Co-Founder and Talent Buyer for Blueprint. “We listen to genres beyond dance music at Blueprint, and wanted to bring that to this festival. This will be a massive block party, accessible to everyone, offering a unique experience to all music lovers – exactly what a party in the park should be.”
“Surrey was the obvious location for this new property,” said Erik Hoffman, Live Nation Canada’s Senior Vice President of Talent. “We had a wonderful time producing the Mumford & Sons event here in 2013. Now, with our partners at Blueprint, we’re bringing a different experience to Holland Park with this exciting and progressive urban music festival. FVDED in the Park speaks to current music and cultural trends, so it made perfect sense to connect this with such a growing and diverse community.”
“We are excited to welcome FVDED in the Park to our community,” said Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner. “Bringing a well-organised festival of this calibre to Surrey further reinforces our standing as a world-class destination. I look forward to seeing everyone there.”
“Looking forward to play in B.C. for my West Coast fans this summer at FVDED in the Park,” said festival headliner Deadmau5. “It is going to be an epic party.”
