That’s right! Bestival has just announced that they’ll be returning to Toronto this summer, over the weekend of June 11th & 12th, 2016. Last year, we had the time of our lives at Bestival TO with the international debut right in our own backyard. Nine months later and we’re still dreaming about that Bollywood Temple and the epic beach parties, not to mention the fireworks that lit up the entire city. We’re super stoked to save the date and highly recommend you do too.
Last year, we were graced by Florence + The Machine, Flume, Jamie XX, Nicole Moudaber, Jamie Jones, and Robin Schulz to name a few. We can only imagine what Bestival has in store for us this year…
I’m super excited we’re heading back with a cracking new site, some incredible headliners and a stellar supporting cast to sprinkle our Bestival magic across the pond once again.
— Rob da Bank, Bestival curator
Organizers are saying that this summer’s Besitval TO is set to be bigger and better. With the announcement of a brand new site at Woodbine Park, we couldn’t think of a more perfect setting for the Bestival vibes, which we fell in love with last year. Not to mention, they have a killer line-up in the works, set to be announced very soon!
“Our first international Bestival jaunt last year in Toronto was one of the highlights of my festival career. I still can’t believe how Toronto totally got what we’re all about straight off the bat,” says Bestival curator Rob da Bank. “I’m super-excited we’re heading back with a cracking new site, some incredible headliners and a stellar supporting cast to sprinkle our Bestival magic across the pond once again. A massive thanks to everyone in Toronto for supporting the cause and we will make it a Bestival to remember!”
As we anxiously await the announcement of 2016’s lineup, we’re happy to spend our days daydreaming of what’s to come. You can relive last year by checking out the official aftermovie and be sure to sign up at www.bestival.ca to get access to pre-sale tickets.
