Blueprint Events and Live Nation Announce Western Canada's Largest Electronic Indoor Music Festival As A Two-Night Stadium Event at BC Place December 26th & 27th

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA-(Friday, October 4, 2013): Blueprint, in partnership with Live Nation Canada, is thrilled to announce the second annual CONTACT Winter music festival at BC Place Stadium, expanding this year to a two-day event, to be held over Boxing Day on December 26th and December 27th, 2013. CONTACT 2013 will be the first ever two-day festival to occur at BC Place, and is poised to trump all previous large-scale events as the most elaborate to-date, attracting music lovers from all over the Pacific Northwest.

CONTACT 2013 follows on the heels of the success of CONTACT 2012, which featured a headlining performance by world-renowned electronic DJ Deadmau5, to the tune of 12,000 celebrators. Conceptualized and produced by Blueprint and Live Nation, this year's festival is expected to secure an even greater turn out over the course of the two days, and will be the largest ever, indoor festival to occur in Western Canada. The ambition to bring an event of this unprecedented magnitude to Vancouver fulfills the desires of Blueprint and Live Nation to grow and push the boundaries of the electronic music scene.

MAKING CONTACT

by Andrew Ryce
December 20, 2013



The large-scale, big-tent festival is becoming the preferred domain for some sectors of dance music in North America. It's easy to see the appeal - huge crowds, huger production values and all-ages access that night clubs just can't offer.

But with a bigger show comes bigger responsibilities. Most promoters know their way around a club inside out. They know what they need, what kind of people will show up, and what to expect. A stadium is a different story. No one knows this better than Blueprint director Alvaro Prol, who's been throwing parties in Vancouver for over over 15 years, and at arenas for the last four. Now he's gearing up for the second annual Contact Festival, an unprecedented two-day gathering in Vancouver's Olympic stadium, BC Place. And, as he'll tell you, it's a far more monumental occasion than your average EDM festival - for Blueprint, for Vancouver, and for its rather sizeable audience.

This year, in partnership with Live Nation, Contact expands to two days, with a jam-packed lineup meant to ensnare the dance music dilettantes, mainstream devotees and underground heads alike. With the formidable double header of Skrillex & Kaskade, college-kid favourites like Baauer and RL Grime, and up-and-coming artists such as Cashmere Cat, this year's edition is a genre-busting affair that belies its obvious mainstream appeal.
