The Lumineers moved to Deer Lake Park

June 1 2016, 6:30 p.m. The Lumineers moved to Deer Lake Park. The Lumineers; an amalgam of heart-swelling stomp-and-clap acoustic rock, classic pop, and front-porch folk, bring their world tour to Vancouver. Due to overwhelming demand the show has been moved from the Orpheum to festival lawn at Deer Lake Park and is now a general admission event. Previously purchased tickets will be honoured at the new venue with priority entery being given to fans that purchased the top price level for the Orpheum performance..

They're drawn by songs like "Slow it Down" and "Dead Sea," slow, sultry ballads that suggest the raw revelations of Jeff Buckley and Ryan Adams.

The Lumineers walk that line with an unerring gift for timeless melodies and soul-stirring lyrics.Powered by passion, ripened by hard work, The Lumineers have found their sound when the world needs it most...
