Talent takes the stage at this weekend’s Fusion Fest

Surrey event expected to draw thousands to city centre.

Award-winning British pop star Jay Sean will be among a long lineup of entertainers hitting the stage as part of the 2011 Surrey Fusion Festival July 16-17.

It’s billed as the ultimate celebration of music, food and culture. And it’s right in the heart of Surrey.

The 2011 Surrey Fusion Festival takes place this weekend (July 16-17), featuring a hot entertainment lineup on several stages, an array of cultural pavilions, a traditional pow wow, kids activities and plenty of flavourful food.

Last year, more than 90,000 people attended the two-day event, which takes place at Holland Park at the corner of King George Boulevard and Old Yale Road.

Headlining on the main stage this year is the Juno award-winning trio Bedouin Soundclash, as well as British platinum artist Jay Sean.

Other artists include local band Santa Lucia, Raghav, Babe Gurr, Warren Dean Flandez, Jugpreet Bajwa, Jordan Cook, and many, many more.

There are also performances by tai chi, dance, drum and instrumental groups. And the Flavours of Surrey Cooking Stage will feature a lineup of local celebrated chefs to tantalize your tastebuds.

The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. both days.

Admission is free.
