Khalid, Zedd to headline Surrey’s FVDED music fest this summer

Hip-hop, R&B, rap and other sounds at Holland Park in early July

Khalid, Zedd, Tory Lanez and French Montana will headline the fifth edition of Surrey’s FVDED in the Park music festival this summer.

The two-day annual event is at Holland Park on the weekend of July 5-6, 2019. Last year’s festival attracted close to 45,000 people.

Blueprint and Live Nation Canada present “what is sure to be the best FVDED in the Park to date.”

The festival features hip-hop, R&B, rap, electronic and pop music. Two-day passes start at $189.99, plus service charges, at fvdedinthepark.com.

Other artists booked for FVDED this year include Louis the Child, RL Grime, 6lack, Lil Yachty, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, Kayzo, Lil Mosey, Green Velvet and many others.

“The diversity of musical genres, the scenic outdoor space and excitement that comes with attending FVDED in the Park has allowed for it to become one of the most successful festivals in Western Canada,” event producers said in a lineup-announcement release Monday (Feb. 11).

Khalid, who dropped his latest single, ‘Talk,’ last week, “is sure to be a festival favourite this summer,” the release added.
