Blueprint Events and Live Nation have announced CONTACT, Western Canada’s largest electronic concert ever to play BC Place this Boxing Day.

Powered by Rogers, CONTACT will feature giant electronic artists like headliner deadmau5 Unhooked. This will be the first electronic dance music event ever held at BC Place and will be the largest to happen in Western Canada.

“This show is going to be incredible – the size, scope, venue, artists and partners we have chosen will make for the largest and most exciting dance event Vancouver and Western Canada has ever seen.

It was important to us that in taking on an event larger than anything we have ever produced that we chose a unique venue and an amazing Canadian artist. We are so proud to be bringing this event to the fans and to the city.” – Alvaro Prol, Founder and CEO of Blueprint Events [Source: Press Release]
