Last week of Jam in Jubilee features top headliners to close out concert series

Midnight Lions, Isotopes, Blessed and The Courtneys to perform

People of all ages enjoy the performances at Jam in Jubilee.

July 30 is the last day this summer to see Jubilee Park in downtown Abbotsford filled with youngsters and seniors, music aficionados and local folks looking for something great to do this summer.

The evening begins at 6 pm. with an art market, followed by music at 7 p.m.

Known for building community in Abbotsford’s Historic Downtown, Sophia Suderman of the Atangard Community Project is excited to welcome the Courtneys to Jam in Jubilee’s main stage.

The Courtneys are known worldwide having opened for pop sensations Tegan and Sara for tours across North America and Australia and New Zealand.

Jam in Jubilee features a mix of music and community gathering as new bands who’ve toured globally get to play informal concerts as well as creating the space for new artists doing their first live gig.

Event organizer Sophia Suderman calls Jam in Jubilee, “a really special celebration of culture that strengthens the arts community and builds relationships.”

Jam in Jubilee has utilized hundreds of hours of volunteer time and garnered vast local support.  The series opened with local talent Jordan Klassen, known nationwide for his somber tracks, and local businesses like Ravens Brewing stepped up provide local brews in this year’s first fully site-licensed Jam in Jubilee.

July 30: Midnight Lions; The Courtneys; Isotopes; Blessed, and Harrison the professional yo-yoer

Jam in Jubilee is curated by a committee of music/media professionals of varying backgrounds from the following organizations: CIVL Radio, Abbotsford Arts Council, NCRA, as well as practicing professional musicians that came together to create an exciting and vibrant lineup.
