Voices in the Park will be the first major ticketed concert to be produced at Brockton fields in Stanley Park. In keeping with evolving sustainable event practices, concert producers are encouraging fans to attend car-free. Shuttle buses will be running from Park Royal in West Vancouver as well as key transit points in Vancouver, with return fares of just $5 per person.
There will be limited reserved parking for sale with concert tickets, but otherwise fans are encouraged to use alternative means of transport and arrive at the site via public transit, by foot or bicycle along the seawall. There will be a free bike valet service at the site to accommodate the thousands of bikes that are expected. An army of volunteers and lit pathways will help to lead fans out of the park at the end of the night.
