“To say that we’re excited at Bestival HQ about launching our very first Bestival outside of the U.K. is a serious understatement,” says Bestival curator Rob da Bank in a statement. “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.”
Bestival Toronto will be held June 12-13 at Hanlan’s Point Beach, Toronto Island. Visit Bestival.ca for the full lineup and ticket info.
