After soaking up the energy of the Parade, head on over to Yonge-Dundas Square for a finale like no other.
YEARS AND YEARS are one of the UK’s biggest and most loved breakthrough bands of recent years. Simultaneously, frontman Olly Alexander has emerged as one of the most talked-about and culturally important young talents. His defiant LGBT speech at Glastonbury and the band’s controversial video for hit single “Desire” (which defied the homogeneity of today’s pop charts) are just two examples of his powerful influence, which have seen him emerge as a voice of his generation .
Dream pop trio, KING, have arrived from LA to share their smooth vibe and soulful authenticity, fresh off their 2017 Grammy nomination. Before that, relive the late 90s with WANNABE, Canada’s premier Spice Girls tribute group. The costumes, the glitter, the accents, the platform shoes...Spice World lives with their premium dose of girl power.
This party wouldn’t feel complete with some of Toronto’s brightest and on-the-rise DJs. Toronto darling and party rocker DJ Lissa monet will be mixing her blend of 80s and 90s nostalgia with Caribbean influence. Getting things started will be emily sbux, bringing you waves of house and commercial vibes.
