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.
