Get your bhangra moves ready because desiFEST is back for its 11th year on Saturday, June 3, at Younge-Dundas Square.

Canada’s premier South Asian urban music festival is a free event that will feature a collection of artists from Canada, Pakistan, India, Pakistan, Australia, and Singapore.

desiFEST founder, Sathish Bala, says he is looking forward to another year of performances with a Bollywood flare.

“We couldn’t stop after a 10th year! While there has been so much progress, we are still far from having a national platform and support by local communities,” he said in a release.

“South Asian artists in the Desi Urban genre face many hurdles. We are committed to shining the spotlight on these talents them and creating opportunities for the next generation in Canada and across the globe.”

The event will host Toronto’s very own JoSH, Lady Kash (Singapore), Global Party Starters (Vancouver), and 18 other acts. Check for updates on Facebook and Instagram, for the desiFEST’s full lineup announcement.
