Mumford & Sons in Surrey at Holland Parkby
UPDATE May 24, 2013: View photos from the concert here.
Mumford & Sons, one of the world’s hottest bands, is set to play Surrey’s Holland Park on May 24, 2013 as a part of Live Nation’s Concerts in the Park series. While the City of Surrey is known for its awesome free family festivals and concerts, this is gearing up to be one of the city’s largest ticketed outdoor concert events in almost 20 years since Lollapalooza, 1994).
“The English folk rock quartet – best known for the chart-toppers “I Will Wait” and “Little Lion Man” – will be supported by 24-year-old soul musician Michael Kiwanuka and the U.K. indie sextet Mystery Jets.” [Now Newspaper]
Mumford & Sons will then go from Surrey to the Sasquatch Music Festival in Washington and continue their North American tour from there.
Attendance is expected to be around 25,000 in the beautiful public space which is located near Central City shopping centre, two SkyTrain stations, and as a bonus it has free WIFI (a legacy of the 2010 Olympic Games). Online registration starts today. Tickets officially go on sale Friday, April 5, 2013 for $58 each (plus taxes, fees, etc.) and will be available online through Live Nation, by phone 1-855-985-5000 or in person at Red Cat Records, Highlife and all Ticketmaster outlets.

This concert promises to be an amazing event.
Thanks to Mayor Watts for continuing to show that Surrey is a great city. No Joke.
Yes, folks, this is Surrey and we’ve got Mumford and Sons!
Wow the list of fun things that are happening in Surrey continues to grow… it’s amazing what a strong civic council can do when their vision is united.
Yes Surrey great accomplishment getting Mumford and Sons. Its too bad that most of Surrey can’t afford to go to a show like this. I can only hope that the City makes money somehow off of this and that they put it towards building an infrastructure to move the traffic that now resides there.
I just watched this show from the roof (18th floor) of my building, great show, it resonated through the entire building such fun, wish I had binoculars but did see light show and thousands of people in my little corner of Surrey!!! Best of all lots of my neighbors got to listen and party and enjoy the music for free!!! Can’t wait for the Fusion Fest July 20-21 many multi cultural bands and food from 50 countries, it rocks and it’s free too except the food!!!!
