For the third straight year, Downsview Park in Toronto will host the August long weekend Veld Music Festival. Past events have hosted EDM giants including Deadmau5, Kaskade, Above & Beyond, Steve Aoki and Avicii.
This year, the festival lineup is just as star-packed with performances scheduled by Bingo Players, Orangeville Ontario natives DVBBS, Nero, Ingrosso, Calvin Harris, Armin van Buuren and many many more.
The famous Bacardi Tent is back again this year and will host Sliink, Caked Up, Green Lantern, Waka Flocka Flame, Iggy Azalea and many more.
Tickets are still available and can be purchased from the Veld website HERE.
It's a rain or shine event with Toronto weather conditions looking ideal for Saturday, but with a chance of rain for Sunday, although a downpour during last year's event turned into dance celebration as euphoric party-goers spun to the thundering music and crazy light show that was further enhanced by the rain pouring through the multi-coloured strobes.
