Vance Joy, The National to play at Burnaby’s Deer Lake this summer

Burnaby has some big names headed its way.

It’s one of the most beautiful venues in Metro Vancouver, and it’s going to host indie pop and alt-rock favourites this summer.

Burnaby’s Deer Lake will feature two big shows this summer: The National will play on June 5, then on Aug. 25, Vance Joy will come to town.

The National, originally hailing from Ohio, are on a world tour for their new album First Two Pages of Frankenstein, according to the band’s website. The album is scheduled for release on April 28.

Many of the tour dates are sold out throughout the U.S.

The Grammy Award-winning band, known for its low-toned sounds, previously played at Deer Lake Park in 2019. In 2017, they played at Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver.

The National’s concert will have American singer-songwriter Soccer Mommy as a guest.

Less than three months later, and Vance Joy (of “Rip Tide” fame) will take the stage with his In Our Own Sweet Time tour.

Tour tickets for the Juno Award-nominated artist have been selling out.

With upbeat, poppy hits that will have you dancing, Vance Joy will also bring along Vancouver’s own Dan Mangan and Canadian singer-songwriter Ruby Waters.

Both shows will take place outdoors rain or shine on Deer Lake’s stunning festival lawn.
