As Bestival gears up for June’s inaugural Toronto edition of the event, curator Rob da Bank has unveiled details of the full lineup, and it’s set to be a biggie!
Featuring a healthy dose of global big names, alongside new local Canadian talent, Bestival Toronto sees headliners from Florence and The Machine alongside Nas, across the two days (12th & 13th June 2015). Joining them will be the likes of Flume, Clean Bandit, Jamie XX, Rudimental, Cashmere Cat, Zhu, and many many more.
Speaking of the line-up announcement, Rob da Bank said: “To say that we’re excited at Bestival HQ about launching our very first Bestival outside of the UK is a serious understatement. We’ve spent 12 years working up to this moment and are so proud to be teaming up with Toronto to launch the good ship that is Bestival overseas. I’m also very proud of our first heavy hitting line-up with typically diverse headliners, Florence and The Machine and Nas! Two amazing talents. We are also announcing; the best leftfield acts around with Caribou and Omar Souleyman, electronic music from Jamie xx and Flosstradamus. I really hope you can join us on the ferry to Toronto Island in June. See you on the beach!”
