Contact Music Festival Showcases EDM’s Rise In Vancouver With Subtronics, Above & Beyond, The Chainsmokers and More –

BC Place will serve as a host stadium for the 2026 World Cup, but 2022 marked the year that Vancouverites reconnected with a Winter tradition after years without Contact.

Contact Music Festival returned to the city on Dec 29th and 30th after a three-year absence, predating COVID lockdowns. The event’s organizers made a point to be heard not just in the stadium, but across all of Vancouver. The festival was so loud that neighbors beyond the water in Kitsilano—a 45-minute walk away from the venue—made noise complaints, according to Daily Hive Vancouver.
