Hawksley headlines Surrey’s summer party

Fusion Festival comes to Holland Park July 21-22.

Two-time Juno-award winner Hawksley Workman will headline Surrey Fusion Festival next month.

With hits like Striptease and Your Beauty Must Be Rubbing Off on Me, Hawksley has enjoyed plenty of radio success in Canada and Europe and has opened for big names like David Bowie, Morrissey and The Cure.

The Fusion Festival, now in its fifth year, will take place in Central City’s Holland Park on July 21 and 22.

“Once again, Holland Park will be transformed into a multicultural community celebration with cultural pavilions, food and live entertainment that will showcase Surrey’s spirit and diversity,” said Mayor Dianne Watts.

The festival is a chance to showcase the food, traditions and arts of the wide array of cultures represented in Surrey.

Closing the event Sunday is American Chicano rock band Los Lobos. The multiple-Grammy-award-winning band is known for its singles Will The Wolf Survive, Come On, Let’s Go and the cover of La Bamba. The band toured the world in the ’80s and ’90s opening for acts such as U2, Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead.

More than 80 acts will perform on four stages throughout the two-day, free festival.

Unique to this year’s festivities is the incorporation of the closing ceremonies of the BC Summer Games, which are being hosted in Surrey this year.
