Vancouver is getting a brand new music festival, and organizers have tapped some of the best names in contemporary R&B to help get the party started. Majid Jordan, DVSN, Jessie Reyez and special guest K-OS will all be in attendance on September 3, 2017 when the very first Safe & Sound Music Fest (SSMF) goes down at Westminster Pier Park in New Westminster, located in the centre of Metro Vancouver.
"This project has been in the works for well over a year and when we discovered Westminster Pier Park, our vision became a reality," explains Paul Stoilen, President of Safe & Sound Entertainment, the collective behind SSMF. “Our goal for this new festival is to showcase international talent in the most accessible and pristine of settings. The lineup came about after a decision was made to focus on emerging contemporary R&B artists like Majid Jordan, DVSN and Jessie Reyez, all of whom will be delivering unforgettable performances. We are also excited to have special guest and award winning hip hop artist K-OS on the bill, seamlessly bridging the gap between genres."
The headliners will be supported by a lineup of local heroes including Tonye, David Morin, Hayleau, Prado, Omar Khan, SJS, The Freshest, DJ Arems, Jay Swing and Andishae; and the event will be hosted by radio personality and DJ Flipout.
General admission and VIP tickets are on sale now for $55 and $95 respectively, and can be purchased at the SSMF website.
