Published Mar 18, 2015On both coasts, this year has had no shortage of big festival announcements, and right now we just got another one. The organizers over at Vancouver booking company Blueprint and Live Nation Canada have just rolled out the lineup for the inaugural FVDED in the Park festival, and it's impressive to say the least.
Taking place on July 3 and 4 just outside Vancouver at Surrey's Holland Park, the event has roped in heavy-hitters such as deadmau5, the Weeknd, Tyler, the Creator, Danny Brown, Vic Mensa, Afrojack, Flosstradamus, Pete Tong, the Chainsmokers, Claude VonStroke, Keys N Krates, Destructo, TOKiMONSTA, Tommy Kruise and more.
The event will be held across two outdoor stages, and according to a press release, "Holland Park was selected as the ideal location for this large-scale event, based on its scenic backdrop, access to over 14 acres of park-space, and proximity to rapid transit."
In a statement, Blueprint's Alvaro Prol said, "We're really excited to start a city festival with an urban summer vibe, not just for the Lower Mainland, but for BC as a whole. 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."
Festival headliner deadmau5 added, "Looking forward to play in BC for my West Coast fans this summer at FVDED in the Park. It is going to be an epic party."
