“It’s been an unpredictable couple of years but we’re back and we can’t wait to be reunited with our Contact family for our 10th journey! We’ve been planning 2021’s festival for a long time now, and we’ve got an incredible lineup coming to Vancouver to celebrate with you. As the organizers, we are working with all stakeholders, including health authorities, to ensure the event is fun and safe. There are going to be some changes for 2021, the biggest is that we’re moving the event from BC Place to the Vancouver Convention Centre. This is a one-year-only change to support and accommodate our partners at BC Place while they carry out venue modifications. Of course, you’ll also see some changes such as the requirement for proof of vaccination, and we encourage all of you to review our safety protocols before purchasing a ticket and arriving at the venue. As always, everyone on the Contact team thanks you for your ongoing support, it means the world to us. We look forward to seeing you again soon!”
