Bestival Comes to Toronto

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

Word on the street is that the summer music festival frenzy has begun and this weekend, Toronto welcomes for the very first time the ever so popular British-import Bestival where getting fancy is encouraged and music goers take on a different persona. This two day boutique style festival will take place on June 12th and 13th on Toronto Island.

Excited? I sure am!

With a artsy-fartsy fair vibe, there is no storage of an amazing lineup - it features Florence and the Machine and Nas as headliners, along with Caribou, Owen Pallett, Wavves, Jamie xx, SBTRKT, Flume, Rudimental, and Omar Souleyman. Also playing are Flosstradamus, Robin Schulz, Jamie Jones, Clean Bandit, Born Ruffians, Cashmere Cat, Justin Martin, Dusky, Skream, Robert DeLong, Cassy, Shamir, and Keys N Krates.

Here's a sneak peek:

FIDO's Grove of Curiosities
Fido will be on-site with a 'Grove of Curiosities'; an organic space where you can sit back and take in Bestival. Lounge in their  human-sized dog house, tree-forts, hammocks and hanging yurts. Take in the multi-media works of young artists from across-Canada, get yourself professionally body and face painted, grab some Fido festival-going swag and charge your smartphone (for capturing and sharing amazing pics of course!).
