Family Channel’s annual Big Ticket Summer Concert will be touching down in Abbotsford on Aug. 15.

Showcasing the biggest and brightest young talent from across the globe, Brit pop-rock band The Vamps and rising superstar Becky G are among the performers taking the stage this year.

Hailing from the U.K, pop-rockers The Vamps are ready to bring down the house. Most recently, the multi-talented group collaborated with Canadian breakout artist Shawn Mendes on a revival of Oh Cecilia and their high-energy performance will electrify the stage.

The concert also marks the Canadian debut for singer/songwriter Becky G, whose hit single Shower became her first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at #16.

The concert will also showcase the talent of Canadian alternative-pop artist Shane Harte whose debut single Let You Know is racking up views and streams from around the world.

There will also be appearances by some of Family Channel’s biggest stars and, after performing across the country on a sold-out national tour, cast members of the wildly popular tween drama The Next Step will bring their high-energy dance routines back to the live stage. Series stars Jordan Clark (Giselle) and Lamar Johnson (West) show off a few of their other talents, bringing an added dose of charisma and charm as this year’s concert hosts.

Tickets are $25, $39.50 or $49.50 and can be purchased at ticketmaster.ca.
