FVDED music festival to return to Surrey park this summer after 2-year break

Event features hip-hop, R&B and electronic music

After a two-year break, the two-day FVDED in the Park music festival will return to Surrey this summer.

Illenium and Young Thug will headline the all-ages event, July 8-9 at Holland Park, event organizers announced Wednesday (March 2).

Pre-sale tickets will be sold starting at 11 a.m. Thursday, March 3, on fvdedinthepark.com. A two-day general-admission pass is priced at $199.99, and VIP passes fetch $329.99.

Other artists on the FVDED bill this year include Don Toliver, Seven Lions, Slander, Yung Lean, Snotty Nose Rez Kids, Baby Tate, Cochise, Dom Dolla, Troyboi and many more.

Launched at Holland Park in 2015, FVDED in the Park features hip-hop, R&B and electronic music, typically on the second weekend in July, with tens of thousands of ticketholders in attendance.

In 2021, event organizers had aimed to stage the festival at Holland Park on Sept. 10-11, but those plans were scrubbed due to the pandemic. The 2020 festival was also cancelled.

“There’s a reason why FVDED in the Park has become one of the most popular music festivals in Western Canada, and why 50,000 fans flock to attend the two-day event each year,” said Blueprint founder, Alvaro Prol. “We’re thrilled to be back at Surrey’s Holland Park, with a top-tier lineup and an unbeatable festival experience that attendees will talk about for years to come.”

Ryan Balaski, VP of Festivals for Live Nation Canada, says the 2022 festival season “will be one for the books, and fans are itching to get back to the live music experience we all know and love. With an exceptional and diverse lineup, a phenomenal location, and an unrivaled vibe, we can’t wait for you all to experience this year’s FVDED in the Park.”
