SURREY — Single-day tickets for this summer’s FVDED in the Park music festival go on sale Thursday (April 12) starting at 10 a.m.

The two-day concert features a mix of R&B, hip-hop, rap and dance sounds at Surrey’s Holland Park.

Future and FERG will headline Friday, July 6, with KYGO and Kehlani closing out Saturday, July 7.

The annual event, billed as Western Canada’s largest urban music festival, is presented by Blueprint and Live Nation Canada.

Last year’s gathering filled Holland Park with close to 40,000 concert-goers, according to event organizers. “This year, fans can enjoy non-stop music across three stages, with a fresh new look and feel planned for the Northwest Stage,” officials said Wednesday.
