SURREY — The event billed as Metro Vancouver’s largest outdoor music event returned to Holland Park over the weekend.

Organizers say that approximately 40,000 fans attended this year over two days, up 54 per cent from last year’s count (26,000).

“Having this level of attendance speaks to the strength of the line-up, the festival site and the love of music in our region,” said festival co-founder Alvara Prol of Blueprint.

Ryan Balaski with Live Nation Canada thanked the City of Surrey for “once again welcoming us back to the community for another hugely successful weekend.”

“With the support of all our partners, we are able to continue providing fans with an exciting event that they can look forward to for years to come,” added Balaski.

The two-day FVDED in the Park festival brought hip-hop, electronic and pop sounds to Surrey on Friday and Saturday (July 7-8), featuring the likes of The Chainsmokers, Wiz Khalifa, PartyNextDoor, Dillon Francis, Ty Dolla $ign, Yellow Claw and other artists.
