We are so proud to be bringing this event to the fans and to the city."

Paul Haagenson, President of Live Nation Canada comments, "We have worked with Blueprint for many years and are proud to work with them on building this epic event. I believe that collectively we have the vision to deliver something never before experienced in Vancouver, and something that we can be proud of for years to come."
