Vancouver’s FVDED in the Park Music Festival in 2022

FVDED in the Park

FVDED in the Park is a music festival at Surrey’s Holland Park that features over two dozen rap, hip-hop, R&B, alternative and electronic music artists.

This event normally happens in July. Last year, however, because of the pandemic, the music festival took place in September.

In 2022, FVDED in the Park takes place on July 8th and 9th. That’s the same weekend as a number of other great events including Carnaval del Sol, the Vancouver Craft Beer & Music Festival and the On Your Block Festival. A number of well-known bands are performing at Carnaval del Sol including Mazacote, the Wasakaka All Stars and Camaro 67. Headliners at the Vancouver Craft Beer Festival are Bedouin SoundClash and Half Moon Run.

FVDED in the Park Concerts in Surrey

Pronounced “Faded,” the annual FVDED 2-day series of concerts took place on September 10th and 11th in 2021.

The festival happened in a scaled-back format at three different venues, none of which were at Holland Park in Surrey (where the event usually takes place). The concerts in 2021 were at the PNE Amphitheatre, Celebrities Nightclub and the Fortune Sound Club.

In 2022, the fifth annual FVDED festival returns to its usual format at Holland Park on July 8th and 9th.

This popular urban music festival attracts over 40,000 music lovers. Major headliners include the Chainsmokers, Marshmello, Wiz Khalifa, Future, Kygo, Khalid and Zedd in past years.

2022 headliners are Illenium and Young Thug.

If you’re young and like its style of music, FVDED is an event you won’t want to miss.

What to Bring and Not to Bring

As with many music festivals these days, there are things you’re allowed to take to FVDED in the Park and things you’re not allowed to take.

 

Recommended Things to Take

Good things to take to FVDED in the Park include an empty or unopened water bottle, a blanket to sit on and a sweater if the evenings are cool. A free water station is available for people wanting to fill their bottles.

The event takes place rain or shine, and umbrellas are not permitted, so pack a raincoat too if the weather looks iffy.

 

Prohibited Items at the Festival

Items NOT allowed at the concert venue usually include alcohol, sharp objects, cameras with detachable lenses, video cameras, selfie sticks, Frisbees, skateboards, BBQs and outside food and beverages, as well as the usual list of obvious items like drugs and weapons.

Smoking is also not permitted at the festival, including vaporizers. Nor are lawn chairs or umbrellas as they’ll obstruct the view of other spectators. Also, leave Fluffy at home, unless he or she is a working guide dog.

For everyone’s safety, expect your bags to be inspected prior to entry and banned items to be confiscated.

FVDED Parking and Transit

Transit T SignHolland Park is beautiful, but it doesn’t offer a lot of parking options. Using public transit is highly recommended, and Central City SkyTrain Station is on the other side of the Central City Mall, so not too far away. King George SkyTrain Station is even closer, located on just the other side of King George Boulevard.

Music fans that wish to drive are encouraged to carpool and use public parking at the King George Station or at the Scott Road SkyTrain Station, and then from there take the SkyTrain the three stops to King George. For folks dropping off passengers at the site, do so along the west side of King George Boulevard.

Bikes aren’t allowed inside the festival venue, but there are bicycle racks and supervised valet service available outside on a first-come, first-served basis.

TIP: Arrive early to find a parking spot for your car or bike. Central City mall is open Saturdays until 7 pm in case you want to shop beforehand, grab a bite to eat or have a pre-concert beverage.

Note: Outside food and drinks are typically not permitted at the FVDED venue. Music fans are allowed to take unopened water bottles, however, as well as empty reusable bottles which can be filled on site.
