Surrey Party for the Planet 2013: Hey Ocean Meet and Greet

Comments 39 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Surrey’s Party for the Planet presented by TD is BC’s largest Earth Day celebration and it all happens at Central City on Saturday, April 27, 2013. From 10:00am to 9:00pm you can enjoy plenty of family-oriented activities, play with interactive eco-exhibits, check out a tree sale, sample some food cart fair, listen to live music and more — all for free.

Party for the Planet, Surrey

Every year there are incredibly talented acts that take to the main stage and this year the line-up is once again pretty stellar. Lights will be on at 7:45pm, Hey Ocean at 6:15pm, Fighting for Ithaca at 5:10pm, The Matinee at 4:00pm, and Shane Philip (amazing didgeridoo artist) at 2:45pm.

As a proud sponsor of Surrey’s Party for the Planet I have a fantastic opportunity to give away to two lucky readers. Each contest winner (and their guest) will be able to attend a meet and greet with Hey Ocean at the event.

Often described as one of Canada’s best up-and-coming acts, Hey Ocean is a young band with an extraordinary talent for blending various musical styles into a brand of infectious pop that is uniquely their own. Together, Ashleigh Ball, David Beckingham and David Vertesi have created a musical repertoire that cannot be ignored – be it on radio, television or your neighbor’s iPod, Hey Ocean will soon be everywhere.

Hey Ocean has also been nominated in the “Breakthrough Group of the Year” category for the 2013 Juno Awards. Here are some of their popular tracks including an acoustic version of Big Blue Wave filmed by the good folks over at Green Couch Sessions:
