Get ready to move and shake to the beat of the music.

This summer, starting on Saturday, June 1, Vancouver’s Public Disco pop-up events will make its return, transforming outdoor spaces into daytime dance parties.

The event was first held in 2017 when Public Disco held their first pop-up party in Alley Oop.

Now, three years later, the party returns as the 2019 Laneway Series, an all-ages summer concert series in partnership with Creative BC, Downtown Vancouver, FACTOR, and Granville Island Brewing.

The Laneway Series includes five different dates, being held throughout the course of the summer, and will be split into two distinct events — the Laneway Disco and Laneway Cabaret.

The Disco will be most similar to past events held by the group, showcasing feel-good music from up-and-coming artists and curated dance performances.

The Laneway Cabaret will feature live music acts ranging from folk to hip hop, with DJs throughout the day.
