Bestival, an export of the UK music festival scene, made its North American debut last summer on Toronto Islands. Now, the festival has announced a return to the city with a new east side venue at Woodbine Park on June 11 and 12, 2016.
Woodbine Park plays host to several big events during the summer months such as the Toronto Food Truck Festival, Beach BBQ and Brews Festival as well as being the main venue for the annual Beaches Jazz Festival.
In 2015, Bestival's lineup boasted the likes of Florence & The Machine, Nas and Caribou, plus a costume parade and other arts-driven elements. Suffice to say, Woodbine Park has never seen the likes of a major international music spectacle of this calibre before.
