BC’s FVDED In The Park cautiously planning for September event

With concerts now happening in the United States and lineups for music festivals all over the world popping up online, a lot of Canadians are feeling a little left out.

While British Columbia and Canada as a whole are still a little ways out from putting on major events, there’s one BC music festival that is hoping to return late this summer.

Organizers of FVDED In The Park, a music festival that attracts some big name electronic artists and rappers to Surrey each summer, announced today that they hope to put on the event in September.

“We have a potential backup plan for FVDED In The Park on Sept. 10 and 11,” said a release from the festival.

“We are in ongoing conversation with the City of Surrey and Fraser Health on where the restrictions may be in summer and beyond.”

The release added that “we must remain realistic and be aware that FVDED may have to be moved again to 2022.”

Organizers promised an update on the lineup once given the green light to hold the festival in September, if that happens.

Details regarding ticket sales and potential refunds, as many festival goers are holding onto their tickets from the cancelled 2021 event, will also come once organizers know more about the feasibility of their September plans.

Flume, G-Eazy and Illenium were scheduled to headline the 2020 version of FVDED In The Park that was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
