Metro Vancouver is finally getting another new music festival and it’s taking place late this summer.
The first ever Safe & Sound Music Fest (SSMF) kicks off at Westminster Pier Park, located on the Fraser River waterfront in New Westminster, on September 3, 2017.
Contemporary R&B artists Majid Jordan, DVSN, and Jessie Reyes as well as special
guest K-OS are set to headline the one-day event.
Other artists include Tonye, David Morin, Hayleau, Prado, Omar Khan, SJS, The Freshest, DJ Arems, Jay Swing, and Andishae. The festival will be hosted by local radio personality DJ Flipout.
“This project has been in the works for well over a year and when we discovered
Westminster Pier Park, our vision became a reality,” Paul Stoilen, president of Safe and Sound Entertainment said in a release.
“The lineup came about after a decision was made to focus on emerging contemporary R&B artists like Majid Jordan, DVSN and Jessie Reyez, all of whom will be delivering unforgettable performances. We are also excited to have special guest and award winning hip hop artist K-OS on the bill, seamlessly bridging the gap between genres.”
There will also be food trucks, bars, and exhibitor booths.
