Voices in the Park Ticket Giveaway

Comments 96 by Rebecca Bollwitt

TELUS presents Voices in the Park, a benefit concert for the Sarah McLachlan School of Music, this Saturday, September 15, 2012. The line-up is stacked as Canadian and international talents, as well as local music students, take to the stage in Stanley Park.


Confirmed performers so far include Sarah McLachlan, Bryan Adams, Stevie Nicks, Hey Ocean!, Jann Arden, Hedley, The Boom Booms, Grammy Award winning producer Chin Injeti, Vancouver Men’s Chorus, and more. Former president Bill Clinton will also make an appearance.

There is parking in Stanley Park but you can take transit (the #19 goes into the park), walk over from Waterfront, or hop the shuttle from Park Royal, the Olympic Village Easy Park, Gastown (Storyeum), and 6th at Ash. Gates will open at 2:00pm on Saturday and there will be food concession, food trucks, a beer garden, and marchandise tents all at Brockton Fields.

Tickets for Voices in the Park presented by TELUS are still on sale starting at $85. I happen to have a pair of General Admission tickets up for grabs as well, here’s how you can enter to win:

    When Sarah last played West Vancouver at Lillith Fair I sat outside outside the gates to listen. It was a beautiful night and just when Neil Young started to sing, a train passed by and the horn went, and it was one of those unforgetable moments. Would really like to be inside!
