With two massive headliners, The Cure and Tame Impala, already out of the bag, Bestival is over the moon to announce a gargantuan line-up of musical treats that will be joining us when the UK’s official Best Major Festival returns to Toronto this June 11th & 12th 2016 at Woodbine Park. Bestival curator Rob da Bank says: “Jamie xx’s set last year on the fire breathing Temple Stage was one of my highlights of our first Toronto show, so I’m really excited that he’s back, along with electronic behemoths Porter Robinson, Odesza, and the first lady of weird leftfield pop Grimes, plus we’ve got a huge undercard, too. See you in T-Dot!” Bringing international artists together with Canada’s finest bands and DJs across multiple stages and mega sound systems in the heart of Toronto, there is a cavalcade of amazing music in store, including the irresistible dreaminess of Odesza, floor-filling polymath Grimes, rhythm genius Jamie xx, genre-swerving wunderkind Porter Robinson, Gallic club-smasher Madeon and purveyor of perfect future house Tchami. Keeping your arms reaching for Ontario skies long into the night, there will also be techno tour de force Dubfire, tropical house chief Thomas Jack, indie-folkstersDaughter, the always enchanting Maya Jane Coles, indie new wave trio Wombatsand aural adventurer Joris Voorn. Stepping up to the ones and twos at Canada’s most creative festival will be the incomparable Art Department, laidback disco duo Classixx, foot-pleasing Polish pairCatz n Dogz, and Hot Natured’s Lee Foss, with psychedelic voyaging from Swim Deep, and dancefloor action from Beats 1’s Friday night avenger Anna Lunoe. Woodbine Park will be dancing with Malaa, unstoppable force Shaun Frank, pigeonhole destroyer Giraffage, Minus alumnus Gaiser, supreme selector Tom Trago,and Jersey club sound’s finest exponent 4B.
