You can say what you want, but the truth is that Faded In The Park was a really important event for Vancouver. Think about it, this was the first ever large scale music event held in a space that wasn’t already a controlled venue.
Completely independent production from the ground up and it was all executed with perfection. Full cooperation from the city, police and paramedics on site in collaboration with private security and first responders. A really well curated lineup, massive stages with cool visuals, great sound and a stoked crowd. I’m really proud to have been able to contribute a small part to the experience.
Who knows what will happen next? Maybe Vancouver will let us do a public block party in the city one day. The barriers are slowly starting to come down. Wild times.
