EDITORIAL NOTE: The News has learned that The One Love Music Festival has been cancelled. More to come.

Abbotsford is set to be the live music capital of Canada, possibly North America and maybe even the entire planet on Saturday (Nov. 26).

A pair of massive concert events are set to take place at roughly the same time on Saturday, with tens of thousands descending onto two different venues to experience two completely different performances.

The first-ever One Love Music Festival, featuring Marshmello, Sofi Tukker, Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano and Diajo kicks off at Tradex beginning at 7 p.m. and running until 1 a.m.

Marshmello is one of the most popular and recognizable DJs in the world and has had four certified platinum singles in multiple countries including Canada and the United States. He’s also won MTV Europe, Electronic Music and iHeartRadio Music Awards for a variety of honours.

The band formed in California in 1984 and reached superstardom with the 1994 album Smash, which sold over 11 million records worldwide and is one of the best selling independent albums ever.
