As most of you know, on March 1st, 2022 – the Province of Alberta announced the removal of almost all Covid-19 restrictions including the capacity restrictions and limits on mass gatherings. It was our hope that we could finally proceed with Soundwave on March 18th.

On February 19, 2020, City Council passed the Electronic Dance Music Events Bylaw 19166, regulating large-scale electronic dance music events of 1,500 participants or more. We worked tirelessly with community stakeholders to ensure that this bylaw would benefit dance music fans and provide a safe and inclusive space at all large scale dance events such as Soundwave. However, we never predicted that we would be plunged into another health crisis.

Regardless of our thorough safety plans and abiding by the rules and regulations we have been informed that Soundwave cannot be hosted on March 18th. It has been determined by regulating body, that ICU numbers are still too high (above surge capacity) to be hosting Soundwave.

All existing ticket holders will have their tickets transferred to any Soundwave event in 2022. Further details on refund process will be shared shortly. Please note that the show is currently over 90% SOLD OUT so in order to secure a ticket for the new event date in 2022 we recommend that you hang on to your existing ticket. We are currently working with Steve Aoki’s team to find a make-up date. We can assure you that it will happen eventually!

Please know that the approval to host the event is beyond our control and that we want Soundwave back as much as you do so that we can all REUNITE again soon. We would like to thank each and every one of you for your support during this time.
