Fri, Dec 28th 5pm–12am
CONTACT, one of Western Canada’s largest and most anticipated festivals, returns to BC Place on December 28th & 29th for a seventh consecutive year.
Headlined by Skrillex and The Chainsmokers, the all ages, two-day event will showcase 20 internationally acclaimed artists, including Galantis, Alice Wonderland, NGHTMRE, TroyBoi and Borgore.
"CONTACT has become a staple of the Western Canadian music scene in large part because of the quality of talent on display each year,” says Alvaro Prol, Blueprint Co-Founder and Festival Director. “Each year festival staff are challenged to produce a show that is better than the previous, and fans certainly won’t be disappointed with the world-class level of talent that they can only hear and see at CONTACT."
The 2018 event will once again include an expansive VIP experience and venue footprint to host 34,000 attendees.
CONTACT x Covenant House Vancouver
For 20 years, Covenant House Vancouver has been a safe haven for homeless and at-risk youth. On any given night there are an estimated 500 to 1,000 homeless young people living on the streets of Vancouver. Most of these youth are there by no fault of their own after experiencing abuse, neglect and/or trauma in their lives. Covenant House Vancouver offers a clear exit from life on the street to young people aged 16 to 24. We are proud to have Covenant House as a community partner this year. There will be a donation center inside the main entrance to the venue where you can donate any unwanted layers of clothes, and make financial donations via cash or credit. Unclaimed lost & found items will also be donated to Covenant House at a later date. These donations go directly to providing food, shelter, clothing and counselling to help youth in need. If you wish to make a financial donation in advance of the festival, please visit the fundraising page.
