Shania to perform at Canadian E-Fest in Vancouver during Canada Day Weekend 2022

This is what to expect at Formula E Vancouver on Canada Day 2022 weekend

By Kenneth Chan | Daily Hive | September 29, 2021

The Canadian E-Fest, featuring the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship race, in East False Creek in downtown Vancouver will be even bigger than previously planned.

Organizers officially announced today the program for the three-day event coinciding with the 2022 Canada Day long weekend — Thursday, June 30 to Saturday, July 2.

This will be Formula E’s most multifaceted event ever, and it has the makings of being the largest event in Vancouver since the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

“People are excited about this event. The excitement and enthusiasm from residents has been overwhelming, so clearly we have a great deal of race fans here in the city,” said Vancouver city councillor Sarah Kirby-Yung during the press conference.

Elite racers from around the world will take to the street circuit in Northeast False Creek on the final day for the electric-battery car race’s practice event, qualifying events, and championship event.

This will be preceded by a celebrity race on Friday, featuring 12 celebrities — each driving one of 12 Vancouver electric car maker ElectraMeccanica’s three-wheeled, single-seat Solo vehicle. Canadian Olympians Charmaine Crooks and Alexandre Bilodeau and local actor Jason Priestley are amongst the celebrities named so far for the non-elite fun race.

Grandstands lining the street circuit — along Pacific Boulevard and Quebec Street, and within the Concord Pacific lands — will provide the race with a capacity for 56,000 spectators for each day of racing.

Beyond the street circuit, Northeast False Creek will be fully activated with events and festivities, transforming it into an electric village.

German finance firm Allianze, one of the race’s main sponsors, will take over Creekside Park to turn it into Allianz E-Village — a massive fan zone with entertainment, exhibits, and food, alongside all the racing action.

Additional components to Canadian E-Fest include E-Live, which is a concert series on the last two nights at Rogers Arena (instead of previous plans to hold the concerts at BC Place Stadium). The full lineup of artists will be announced at a later date.

***The text about Shania performing has obviously been deleted from the article after the Google Alert email was sent out.

Organizers will also stage an esports tournament, starting with qualifying rounds throughout the spring and culminating with the live qualifier and finals held at the former Edgewater Casino building at the Plaza of Nations. Competitors will vie for a share of the $50,000 prize pool.

As well, the event’s itinerary for the first two days includes a green energy business conference staged by C2 International, featuring prominent speakers such as environmental activist Erin Brockovich.

More details on all of the event components will be released in the months to come.

The announcement of ticket sales for the Formula E race is set for the coming weeks, with race tickets starting as low as $25.

“There’s something for everyone, fun for the whole family,” said Canadian racer James Hinchcliffe, who is the ambassador for Vancouver’s inaugural event. He noted the entire format of Canadian E-Fest is unique to Formula E.

The surge in tourists from around the world and the activities of local organizers are expected to generate $80 million in local economic spinoffs and create about 3,000 jobs. Organizers have committed to covering all costs of staging the event, including all municipal costs such as policing, sanitization, and traffic management.

Vancouver is the ninth of 12 stops in the 2022 Formula E World Championship calendar, which starts in Diriyah in Saudi Arabia in January 2022 and ends in Seoul in August 2022. Other races are scheduled for Mexico City, Cape Town, Rome, Monaco, Berlin, New York City, and London. 

“It has been about three years without a race in Canada, and we’re very glad to be back,” said Alberto Longo, co-founder and the chief championship officer of Formula E.

This also represents Vancouver’s first car race since 2004, when the last Molson Indy was held in the same area.

***Shania's new album will be out by the time of her performance in the beginning of July 2022.

So when she was talking about a new album "in the spring", in 2020, she was thinking "spring 2022"! I hope there will be at least 16 songs and more than two music videos.

Shania Twain and Shawn Mendes to headline Formula E Vancouver

By Zoe Demarco | Daily Hive | October 7, 2021 

Shania Twain and Shawn Mendes have been announced as headliners for the inaugural Canadian E-Fest.

The musicians will perform at Rogers Arena as part of E-Live, the festival’s two-night concert series. 

Twain will take the stage on July 1, followed by Mendes on July 2. More performers are expected to be announced at a later date.

The Canadian E-Fest will take over Vancouver’s East False Creek area over next year’s Canada Day long weekend, from June 30 to July 2, 2022.

The three-day event will see fully electric, single-seat race cars zip through the city’s streets as drivers vie for the 2022 APP FIA Formula E World Championship.

There will be plenty of action off the track, too. The festival will feature conferences on sustainability and innovation, a celebrity race, an e-sports tournament, and more.

Organized by the Canadian OSS Group, the Canadian E-Fest is expected to top $80 million in economic value and create approximately 3,000 jobs over the course of its three days.

Organizers estimate 56,000 people will fill grandstands on race day.

Tickets start at $70, and go on sale tomorrow at noon via the Canadian E-Fest website.

Shania Twain to headline Boots and Hearts festival in August

Ticket pre-sale starts Wednesday, Nov. 24 at 10 a.m. and opens to the public on Friday, Nov. 26 at 10 a.m.

By OrilliaMatters Staff | November 23, 2021

Republic Live, producers of Boots and Hearts Music Festival, today announced the highly anticipated line-up of headliners for the 2022 festival including multi-Grammy award-winning country music superstar Shania Twain. Joined by Sam Hunt and Florida Georgia Line, Twain returns home to headline Canada’s largest camping and country music festival taking place from Aug. 4-7, 2022, at Burl’s Creek Event Grounds in Oro-Medonte, Ont.

“Having internationally acclaimed icon Shania Twain perform at Boots & Hearts Music Festival at Burl’s Creek is an absolute dream come true,” said Eva Dunford, founding partner, Republic Live. “As a Canadian, family run business whose pride and joy is this festival, we couldn’t be more excited about the incredible headliners confirmed for our comeback year. It will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Boots and Hearts will be Shania’s only North American festival performance for 2022 and her first-ever appearance at a Canadian music festival, so it’s an even greater honour to have her join the Boots family. We can’t wait to welcome home the artists, fans, partners, suppliers, and staff who make Boots & Hearts an incredible experience.”

Joining Shania Twain as 2022 headliners are country music superstars Sam Hunt and Florida Georgia Line. While Sam Hunt’s first-ever Canadian performance was on the side stage at Boots and Hearts in 2014, we are thrilled to have him headline the main stage this year. Florida Georgia Line return to Boots & Hearts as fan favourites for the third time following their electric headlining appearances in 2015 and 2018.

Adding to the excitement surrounding the return of Boots and Hearts, Twain’s appearance on Sunday Aug. 7 will feature all-Canadian, all-female main stage performances from start to finish. As a leading country music festival in North America, Boots and Hearts and Republic Live are incredibly proud to be celebrating female artists with a first-ever all-female dedicated main stage headlined by the iconic Shania Twain.

“As a Canadian team focused on representing Canada in the global festival market, we’re honoured to host a Canadian country superstar on Canadian soil to celebrate everything she’s done for our genre,” said Brooke Dunford, director of booking and brand strategy, Republic Live. “For many of our fans and fellow artists, Shania Twain has had a big impact on what we know and love about country music. It was important to us to celebrate her success as a female in country music and beyond, with incredible female talent that is both making waves across the border and within Canada.

"We’re extremely proud of all the female artists in our line-up and we’re excited to showcase their talents alongside the Queen of Country. There’s no doubt the theme for 2022 is LET’S GO GIRLS!“

Weekend and single day tickets will be available for the 2022 festival allowing guests to go for the day to experience Canada’s award-winning festival or stay all weekend long to celebrate the best of #BootsLife. Ticket pre-sale starts Wednesday, Nov. 24 at 10 a.m. and opens to the public on Friday, Nov. 26 at 10 a.m.

Direct support artists Dustin Lynch, Russell Dickerson, Lindsay Ell and more are also confirmed to perform. Additional artists and the full line-up will be announced in the New Year.

So is Vancouver on July 1 cancelled or what?
