VIDEO: Paul Brandt headlines new three-day concert in Fort Langley

An end-of-summer concert at the Fort Langley National Historic site runs Aug. 30 through Sept. 1

A new, three-day concert is being created to close out the summer holidays at the Fort National Historic Site.

An announcement was released Tuesday morning, 79 days ahead of the event, announcing the creation of the inaugural Summerset Music & Arts Festival.

It will feature several big names artists, including Canadian country star Paul Brandt, the American rock band Rival Sons, 1970-80s rock legend April Wine, Surrey’s own Washboard Union, plus Kim Mitchell and his band.

The concert – being presented by Red Door Events – will run from Aug. 30 to Sept. 1, and is being built on what Red Door’s Paul Verhoeff hails as the success of the past Langley Beer + Food Festival at the same venue.

Red Door is a sister company to Langley’s Trading Post Brewing, specifically developed to create events. Other events in the offing by this same group include a 30-day Christmas light event in downtown Calgary.

ANOTHER FORT MUSIC FESTIVAL: All types of volunteers wanted for Fort Langley jazz fest

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be bringing this brand new festival to beautiful Fort Langley,” Verhoeff said.

“Due to the wildly successful Langley Beer + Food Festival, we saw an opportunity to bring an even larger than life event to Fort Langley – and thus Summerset Music and Arts Festival was born. We’re excited to work with the community, sponsors and partners to present an extraordinary experience unique to the region.”

Other musicians already committed to perform at Summerset are The Trews, Kadooh, Jesse Roper, The Matinee, The Wild North, and J.P. Maurice, Verhoeff announced.

Like the other festival, this event will also feature a wide range of B.C. beers, wines, coolers, and food trucks, along with art installations and activities, Verhoeff said.

Earlybird tickets go on sale starting this Friday, at 10 a.m. at $59 for single-day, $169 for the full weekend. There are also ranges of VIP tickets available from 4139 to $219 at https://bit.ly/31jO80L or at summersetfestival.ca.
