Returning for it’s 5th year, Blueprint’s Contact Music Festival will close out 2016 with a bang! Despite the summer being now long gone, Blueprint looks to carry vibes well into winter. The Vancouver based Blueprint Events have been providing the city with some of the best shows it’s had for almost 19 years. Topping the list of performers is Flume and a DJ set by Disclosure, however not to be overlooked by special guest Zeds Dead. Those names alone would get anyone excited, but throw in Mija, Marshmello, Getter, & Gareth Emery (just to name a few), and you’ve got the makings of a great 2 days.
Rightfully claiming the title of “Western Canada’s Largest Winter Music Festival,” Contact will be looking to pack nearly 36,000 under the BC Place Arena’s roof. While some may call Vancouver the “No Fun City,” Blueprint has certainly shown that’s just not the case. For those needing a little convincing, take a look at what Blueprint has put together for Contact 2016.
Tickets start at just $150 CAD for a 2-day pass and officially go on sale today, September 29th at noon. If you’re still recovering from a summer full of festivals, Contact will be offering a 4 payment layaway plan to make ticket purchasing a little easier. VIP passes (19+) will also be available, which include separate entrances and bar. We highly suggest getting your tickets ASAP, as Contact has sold out the last 3 years running. We’re certainly looking forward to making contact for our first time later this December.
Beyond the 2 back to back nights of amazing music at BC Place, we suspect Blueprint to carry on the tradition of their tried and true afterparties. We will continue to say “Trust in the afterparty” as BP has a way of making big things happen. From a MASSIVE B2B set featuring Ekali, Felix Cartel, NGHTMRE, Dr. Fresch, and Knife Party, to a surprise DJ set by Porter Robinson. Be sure to stay tuned to the official Contact Music Festival Facebook page for updates and announcements (Blueprint loves to sneak in more artists last minute). As well as give us a follow on Instagram and Twitter for all your PNW dance music news!
And finally dont forget that Blueprint will be celebrating their 19th birthday just a month before with a party to include Dillon Francis, RL Grime, REZZ and more!
