The 11th Annual South Asian Music Concert, desiFEST Returns!

Celebrate the 11th annual South Asian music showcase on June 3, 2017 at Yonge-Dundas Square.

Canada’s premier South Asian Urban Music platform is set to celebrate year 11 with its annual FREE concert on Saturday, June 3rd, 2017 at Yonge-Dundas Square.

desiFEST presented by TD and hosted by founder, Sathish Bala; also known as SatsB will introduce evolving acts and bring favourites to the outdoor stage. Along with the music, visitors get a taste of South Asian cuisine at the outdoor food market, experience family fun at the Kids Zone, engage in multiple interactive onsite activations, and walk away winners with countless giveaways.

The talent for desiFEST will include artists from Ontario, Montreal, Vancouver, India, Pakistan, Australia and Singapore; acts will perform in Hindi, Punjabi, Tamil, English and more. The show will present a mix of dancers, solo performances, and bands.

desiFEST is proud to host homegrown talent JoSH (Toronto), Lady Kash (Singapore), Global Party Starters (Vancouver) and at least 18 other incredible acts.

“We couldn’t stop after the 10th year! While there has been so much progress, we are still far from having a national platform and support by local communities. South Asian artists in the Desi Urban genre face many hurdles. We are committed to shining the spotlight on these talents and creating opportunities for the next generation in Canada and across the globe,” said desiFEST founder, Sathish Bala.

Since 2007, desiFEST has grown in both size and influence, attracting big name acts from across the country and overseas.  desiFEST has been host to fan favourites including Master D, Apache Indian, Mickey Singh, Zack Knight, Raxstar, EnKarma, Taz & StereoNation and many more.
