Vancouver is always a great getaway – whether you’re on a work vacation, embarking on a family trip or trying to get AWAY from family, we’ve got something for you to see and do.


Is this for you? You’ve had a good time with your family for the holidays, but Boxing Day rolls around and you are DONE. You’ve done the nice meals, you’ve listened to the carols, you even washed the dishes. Now it’s time to go out to do something for yourself such as feeling the groove of great music and dancing like your life depended on it.

Whether or not this is exactly what you’re feeling by the time December 27 rolls around, there’s a good chance you’ll want to look into CONTACT, a two-day dance music festival at BC Place in Vancouver. This is Canada’s largest indoor music festival and features major headlining artists such as:

Major Lazer: This Jamaican-American electronic dance music trio features world-famous record producer Diplo, and DJs Walshy Fire and Ape Drums, who are credited with bringing electric dance hall to the world. Their deep grooves and hilarious videos have captured the hearts of party-goers everywhere – they’ll be headlining Friday night at Contact. Don’t miss them!

Tiësto: This Dutch DJ is a legend on the scene. Known for massive hits like “Harder,” “Pair of Dice,” and “Show Me,” many consider Tiësto to be the Godfather of EDM (electronic dance music). He knows how to get people out on the dance floor, and has proven that time and time again.

And that’s not nearly all! See up and coming acts like San Holo, REZZ, Fisher and many, many more, all the while dancing off the holiday weight.

While attending a two-day dance festival, you’ll be needing comfortable and spacious accommodations to try out some dance moves. Recharge and energize in luxuriously appointed Executive, Deluxe or Penthouse suites that offer premium quality bed linens, fully equipped kitchens, 37-inch flat-screen HDTVs, free Wi-Fi, separate living and dining spaces, fabulous views of the city, and much more. Book an extended stay at the Landis Hotel & Suites and save on the full weekend while staying close to the venue, while relaxing in affordable luxury!
