“To say that we’re excited at Bestival HQ about launching our very first Bestival overseas is a serious understatement,” said Bestival Curator Rob da Bank. “We’ve spent 12 years working up to this moment and are so proud to be teaming up with Toronto to launch the good ship that is Bestival overseas. I’m also very proud of our first heavy hitting line up with typically diverse headliners, Florence + The Machine and Nas! Two amazing talents. We are also announcing; the best leftfield acts around with Caribou and Omar Souleyman, electronic music from Jamie xx and Flosstradamus. I really hope you can join us on the ferry to Toronto Island in June. See you on the beach!”
