Sounds of Summer Live Music

In years when the concerts aren’t cancelled due to pandemics, residents of Surrey and the entire Lower Mainland are invited to bring their lawn chairs and blankets to sit on, plus their picnics to eat, and come out and enjoy the free music entertainment.

The 2020 Sounds of Summer events were cancelled because of COVID-19. However, the concert series returned in 2021 with shows starting in August.

Tickets for shows in 2021 were free but they had to be booked in advance online starting July 31st. Only 100 people were permitted to attend each concert, so tickets needed to be reserved as soon as possible.

Below was the summer schedule of dates and locations for 2021, along with suggestions on what else to do while in the area. 2022 concert dates and details are to be confirmed.
